TOWARDS A NEW WESTERN HINDUISM
A real American Hinduism would not be a Hinduism scaled down to the needs of American commercialism, turned into a new fad or hype of Hollywood or Wall Street. It isn’t merely yoga postures for football players or for movie stars. It is an experience of one’s Self and true nature not only in the  context of the American landscape but also as connected with the Earth, universe and the supreme consciousness.

Hinduism honors the Divine Self in all beings and helps us develop our individual potentials organically and in harmony with all of life. That is why it can never accept any final dogma or prescribe any stereotyped creed or practice for  everyone. Its goal is to help us realize ourselves through learning about the universe we live in that is a reflection of our deeper soul.

As  time continues this Hindu sense of the cosmic Self and world Soul will dawn on more and more people, regardless of their location or culture. It is simply the unfoldment of life itself and its  deeper spirit. This will gradually transform humanity and bring us back into the fold of the universal  religion beyond names and institutions. We will once more become caring citizens of the   conscious universe instead of human-centered exploiters of the  natural world as we are today.
