Hinduism, the way of life of great liberties, freedom and tolerance. This is what I know of Hinduism. It is a way of life, not a religion, not a set of books, not a way of eating. It pervades each and every aspect of a Hindu's life, the thinking, the eating, the talking, the behaving, the worshipping, the living.
But in presence of other religions with proselytizing... evidently, it had/has two options. One to remain as is and allow for the conversion of the people to other religions; and whetsats a way of life without the people to live by it? Two, to become as strict as other religions are; and thus become what its not/what its against. Its changing shape, its from, crystallizing, having left its shape as a free-flowing river to that of a stagnant pond/lake, big but stagnant, bound by the limits of time and thought. Its evidently a reverse survival tactic taken against the proselytisaton. A survival tactic employed trying to harden a free form.
Both cases, its imminent, it will die out. The premise however, is the unshakable belief in human stupidity to choose what suits it best.
Its a great way to victory you see - if you cant win over them, just convert them into yours
|The 9/11 strikes did not do as much damage to US as they did to themselves with the succeeding measures they took to combat the menace. They struck at the heart of the matter : at the root of the issue : at the Americans belief in Freedom. That is exactly where Osama struck; not at the symbols of politics, finance, security but at the psyches of the people themselves. All he had to do was srtike fear; the rest would be done by themselves.|
*prosleytization - To induce someone to join one's own political party or to espouse one's doctrine.
