For those who really want to understand the heart and soul of Hindu Dharma, the work of Ram Swarup is perhaps the best place to start.
Many people today think that Hinduism is not an intellectual religion land does not have, in spite of its many great spiritual philosophies, any real modern intelligentsia to represent it. They look on Hinduism as a religion of an uncritical, if not nanve faith in various gods and gurus. Or if Hinduism has an intellectual side they see it only as a transcendent Vedanta that offers no real critique of other religions, no plan for society, and does not make itself relevant to current problems or pressing human needs.
Ram Swarup shows that this not all true. He reveals the Hindu mind in action as a creative and spiritual force to change both the individual and the society for both the inner and the outer good. He outlines s Hindu approach to the problems of the world that offers deep and ;lasting solutions that go beyond the limitation of Western religions or Western science, following the development of consciousness as the real thrust in civilization. .
