If there is one place in the whole world where the flower of spirituality has blossomed fully, it is the Himalayas. It is called The land of Gods for a reason. It has been home of innumerable rishis, saints, sages, seers, yogis, mystics, etc. ?
Due to so many invasions, in the past few centuries, Indians have suffered immensely. They have been living a very suppressed lifestyle and couldn’t lead a dignified life. The damaged souls and the cultural trauma has been traveling through generations and is still leading many Indians (esp. lower and middle class) to rebel against their own culture. We, just like the west, are nowadays sensitized by the exterior and have started adopting their ways. ?
However, I have been deeply touched by the beauty of Himalayan traditions and thus, I can’t help but talk about them. I believe once Indians get to experience the material prosperity and realize the emptiness in that, they will automatically come back and embrace their culture more passionately than ever before.
We can’t explain the young Indian millennials the depth of their tradition by simply talking to them. Just like our western brothers and sisters, they will have to experience the emptiness in materialism for themselves and evolve through it. ?
