“Hinduism” is NOT A RELIGION, nor is it a FAITH, time to stop lying to ourselves and to others. Every “religious” act that Hindus do is an act of Yoga, Hinduism is “YogaVidya in action”.
If anything, Hindu is a civilisational epithet, if you follow its civilisational principles, YOU ARE A HINDU.
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”.
When further cemented by an avowed adherance to emotional violence, to guilt and fear, a denial of universal love and familyhood, and then presented to the world, as divinely sanctioned, a faith is born. In reality it is nothing other than the worst of all supremacist ideologies ie colonialism, hiding in plain sight.
