Why Western Women Embrace Hinduism ? Part 2

Why Western Women Embrace Hinduism ? Part 2

While in India progress and modernity are defined as disowning one’s ancient roots from its Hindu culture and instead aping the West blindly, this comes across as both artificial and laughable, in the monstrous chimera it creates by that aforementioned process of deracination.

Is Hinduism a Religion or a Way of Life ? Its Both and Much More
