Journalistic Work
The Muslims have been in India for over a thousand years and still lack the most elementary understanding of the Hindu yogic path. They reject karma and rebirth as superstitions, and look at the Hindus many wonderful Gods and Goddesses that connect us to the cosmic mind as little better than demons. Their mullahs encourage such attitudes in order to keep them separate from Hindus and unable to interact with them on religious issues.

The British, with all their intellectual acumen, were in India for over two hundred years and left with no real understanding the spiritual depths of the country. Their concern was money and hegemony, not enlightenment and higher consciousness. Such people have their minds closed in a narrow belief. Like a blind person they miss the obvious even when it right in their face. Many modern Indian intellectuals are of the same ilk, conditioned by Marx, Mueller and Macaulay they cannot appreciate an Aurobindo or a Ramana Maharshi. Ram Swarup, however, neverturned his critical statements into any blanket condemnations. He judged individuals in their own right. He dialogued with people of all  religious persuasions and would give any person a fair hearing. There was no partiality in him but a respect for truth above all other concerns.

I followed Ram Swarup’s insights in my own writings, noting not only a spiritual (devic) but also an egoistic or asuric factor in mysticism that I highlighted in my book Awaken Bharata. Religion can project cosmic forces not only of light and knowledge but also of darkness and ignorance. Religious states of mind can augment pride or confuse the ego with God.
