Where is God? I want an exact answer, no philosophy

This was a question on Quora. Here is my reply: I assume you mean by God That which is upholding this universe, responsible for it, the highest authority. So the answer is: God is everywhere, including in us. This answer is based on the insights of the ancient Indian Rishis and modern science also points […]

Quora question: Why is Dr Zakir Naik labeled as anti Hindu?

My reply: I assume this question is asked by a Hindu who does not quite know what Islam (and also Christianity) claim: Both claim that the Supreme Being (called Allah in Islam and God in Christianity) has revealed the full truth only to one person – in the case of Islam to Prophet Mohammed and […]

Why is Hinduism being denigrated in spite of being the most reasonable system of living?

This was a question on Quora to which I replied. Yet again, I got a message from Quora that “the question has been marked as needing improvement and will be in a restricted state until edited.” So I post it here because there is nothing wrong with the question or my answer. Here it is: […]

In the business of maligning India.

There was a strange question on Quora recently: Is India becoming the most hated country? It reminded me of the years after Nirbhaya’s rape and murder, when a massive campaign was launched worldwide to portray Indian men as rapists. It was so massive that it reached not only local papers in Germany and probably everywhere […]

Nothing wrong with Hindutva or Hinduness – on the contrary

Is being a Hindu ok and is Hindutva not ok and even dangerous? Many Hindus seem wary to be associated with Hindutva, in spite of the fact that Hindutva simply means Hindu-ness or being Hindu. They tend to accept the view which mainstream media peddled for long: ‘Hindutva is intolerant and stands for the ‘communal […]

Why is Hinduism higher than all religions?

Again one of my answers on Quora collapsed. I replied to the above question 7 months ago. Now it was taken down. Here it is: I will restrict my answer to the three religions with the most followers. Hinduism (the term is used today to cover many different strands) is based on the Vedas. One […]

Can one have faith in the Almighty and yet be scientific minded?

Yes, and it is even natural. One only needs to deeply reflect on what is meant by the Almighty. If somebody grew up as a Christian or Muslim, he needs, however, to get rid of some notions about the Almighty which can never be proven and are in all likelihood not true – for example […]

भारतामधील जातिव्यवस्थेला आणि ब्राह्मणांना ठोकणे, ह्यामागं एक सुसूत्र योजना आहे.

This is the Marathi translation of https://mariawirthblog.wordpress.com/2017/09/13/the-bashing-of-brahmins-and-indias-caste-system-has-an-agenda/ पश्चिमेकडील सामान्य लोकांना भारताविषयी खरी माहिती फारच थोडी असते. मात्र, भारतामधील जातिव्यवस्था अमानुष आहे इतकी एक बाब सर्वांना माहीत आहे. आणि ती व्यवस्था त्यांच्या हिंदुधर्माचंच महत्त्वाचं अंग आहे, असंही बहुतेकांना माहीत आहे. सर्व जातीतील ब्राह्मण जात सर्वश्रेष्ठ आहे आणि त्या जातीची माणसं खालच्या जातींना, त्यातल्या त्यात हीनतम जातीच्या […]

English medium education weakens India. The PISA test proved it

It is no secret why the British replaced the indigenous education system and Sanskrit gurukuls with English education. They wanted to create a class of Indians who think like the British and in this way weaken India. Sanskrit culture und Vedic knowledge were the backbone of Indians. This backbone had to be broken. English medium […]
