HINDU AND VEDIC KNOWLEDGE IN MODERN AGE
There is a simple way wherein we can learn to understand anyone or any culture. This is to not view them as foreign or alien but to accept them as our own, like a forgotten relative, a long lost part of ourselves. It is to endeavor to look at the world through their eyes and with respect to their intelligence. In ancient and modern India this takes the form of treating a guest as form of the Divine, a spiritual friend.

We are all human beings and all human cultures must therefore be fundamentally akin to us, though their forms may appear quite difficult to understand. Behind all culture is the same seeking for love, truth and beauty and wishing to avoid sorrow, strife and poverty.   It is time we stopped making other human beings alien. This only ends up causing enmity and war. If we examine all cultures we find in each all the same basic needs and goals culminating in the search for the Divine or the eternal. 

A humanity divided against itself cannot stand. Recognizing this we can integrate the world in our own minds. This is the goal of Vedic knowledge. We cannot heal the world without first healing our idea of the world within our mind. To do this we must see the world within us and our self in all aspects of the world. This is to reconstruct the cosmic man who is our true self and embraces all humanity in a single glance.
