The Myth of Hindu Supremacy

Many westerners, especially the former colonial slave masters the Britishers, have fully formed opinions and views of what a Hindu is, what a Hindu should be, what Hinduism is and what Yoga is and much of what constitutes these opinions is based upon colonial accounts and memories. When a Hindu seeks to correct or challenge these prejudices, the common charge “you’re a Hindu Supremacist” or “You’re a Hindu Fundamentalist” is laid at their door. .

In praise of generalisations..

One of the strategies of the intellectually mischievous is to deflect responsibility for the consequences of their favoured ideology by rejecting every criticism as a ‘generalisation’.This mechanism is most frequently deployed when one challenges a “religious” ideology, and especially when one is seeking to either protect indigenous understandings, especially dharmic Hindu principles or to differentiate the key impetus driving the colonialist “religions”.

Why Indigenous Names ARE important..

A recent article by Scientific American magazine introduced the term “Cardiac Coherence Breathing Exercise” in describing what a hundred generations of Hindus have known as Anuloma Viloma. The twitter space picked it up and scores of Occidental self declared yogis rushed to “defend the ramparts” against the demands of natives claiming that this was yet another example cultural appropriation.

Testimonials

A genuinely well read and knowledgeable person, Satish ji’s expertise and knowledge on Dharma, Yoga, Hinduism and other religion’s, his ability to discover “interesting” solutions to every problem makes him a connoisseur of areas of Conflict. The art of seeking clarity, perfection and resolution in difficult situations has to be learnt from him. He is witty, mischievous, wise and is a master in oratory skills, and still a very pleasant person.

I have known Satish for many years and he has become a great friend. He shared spiritual guidance which enabled me to dissolve a rigid mindset acquired whilst being brought up in a strict household. He was able to help diffuse many of my anxieties with insights and laughter! I have learnt so much from him and have embraced the practices of Dharma in my professional life as a Lecturer, local Politician, and as a mother and wife.
