आदरणीय प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी जी, मैं भारतीय नागरिक नहीं हूं, लेकिन मैं भारत का सम्मान करती हूं और मेरी इच्छा है कि इसकी संस्कृति पल्लवित हो और समस्त विश्व को सुवासित करे, क्योंकि यह संपूर्ण मानव जाति के लिए हितकारी है। भारत को छोड़कर, सभी प्राचीन संस्कृतियों को ईसाई या इस्लाम या कुछ मामलों में […]

Is it wrong to say that only my religion is right?

This question cannot be answered with a yes or no, because it depends if you have good reasons why you believe that your religion alone is the right one. If your belief is based on reason, intuition and experience than surely it is not wrong to say so and to try to make others see […]

Letting falsehood spread is no virtue

“Why Indians had to suffer so much for the last 1000 years when they were generally good-natured and did not attack others?” someone asked Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.

My factual reply to a dubious question was removed by Quora

The question on Quora was: Why has the hatred between Hindus and Muslims increased in the past four to five years? My reply, which was removed after 2 months: The questioner makes a claim which cannot be substantiated. If ‘communal crimes’ had increased, one might conclude that hatred also has increased.

Which Vedic claim is neither in Bible or Quran?

The Vedas contain a lot which is neither in Bible or Quran. But probably the most important claim is “Aham Brahmasmi”.

This is the Hindi translation by My Nation of my article: https://mariawirthblog.wordpress.com/2018/10/08/where-is-extremism-in-india-and-where-in-pakistan/ धर्म और चरमपंथ पर कोई भाषण कितना भ्रमित, अनौपचारिक और शायद चालबाजी से भरा भी हो सकता है, संयुक्त राष्ट्र की हालिया आम सभा में फिर से साफ तौर पर दिखा। विदेश मंत्री सुषमा स्वराज के भाषण के जवाब में, एक पाकिस्तानी राजनयिक […]

Do Brahmins feel guilty for what they have done and doing to India?

Why has the hatred between Hindus and Muslims increased in the past 5 years?

This was a question on Quora and the questioner obviously took it for granted that hatred has increased. He only wanted to know why. However, it cannot be substantiated that hatred has increased. Yet the questioner cannot be faulted, because Indian and international mainstream media clearly give the impression as if hatred between the communities […]
