Hindu Self Shaming
India Forum: Comments, Opinion - Information Resource
News Summary: Often I hear my Hindu friends express how ashamed they are about being a Hindu when they come across some media report about Hindu religious or cultural customs which may not conform to their westernized logic. Or it may be news item of a communal incident in which Hindus are reported to have participated. Western media as well as the English media in India routinely portray Hinduism in stereotyped manner and have rarely shown objectivity in such reports. My friends do not bother to check the re.....read more in: Hindu Self Shaming

I want to make one last important point to the discussion. Many of us, Hindus, are Hindus only by culture with a few basic, Hindu practices, as we learned them by being around our parents, not necessarily by religious education, as such.

I know my parents left it up to us, on our own, to learn and practice what they did as religion and culture. They never had any formal education, did not know how to read or write and did not force anything on us, except basic daily, household chores.

That may also be true of many Christians and Muslims of the Indian Diaspora. Many Hindu children of the Diaspora were never exposed to formal Hindu education, as there was none for many years.

We are comfortable being Hindus as long as we are among non proselytizing friends. The discomfort and self shaming come when we are put in a position or put on the spot to show we know the reasons behind our practices about which we often know very little. This mostly happens when we encounter people with another agenda, like proselytizing, and it can truly be shaming.

The situation is alarming when we, Hindus, become part of the Indian Diaspora where we may be alone among friends who are non Hindus. Otherwise, we are comfortable among Hindu friends.

Some twenty years ago, one of my vegetarian Hindu friends from India told me he ordered meat dishes when he was with non Indian friends at restaurants, but he did not eat the meat. I looked at him and wondered if being vegetarian was a crime of which he was ashamed. That is the extreme to which some of us may go in feeling shame and hiding our discomforts.

Another most important point is that, regardless of whatever anyone may think of Sathya Sai Baba, whether he is God, a guru, a mystic, a charlatan, or whatever, there is one thing he guarantees, and that is lifting the self esteem of all Indians, Hindus and non Hindus alike. There is no one like him to do that in all of India and around the world.

6 S.Ghosh on Mar-17 :

There is no self-Shaming of the Hindus in India except in the pages of the English laguage media, where the writers are not Hindus.
In foreign countries however, if a Hindu has to see Slumdog Millionnaire or any of the programmes of the BBC or would come across the writings of the Anglo-American Indologists, he will be ashamed of himself unless he has a great knowledge about his religion and has a great courage to stand up to the White people and their bIndian slaves.
Unfortunately our secular education does not prepare us for that task.

I would like to believe that Hindu self shaming is not as wide-spread as we are often lead to believe, but for now, I accept self shaming as a possible problem in parts of the Hindu community, because I myself went through some of it, and vowed never to be in that position again.

Such self shaming only comes about with lack of knowledge of Hinduism, and all the basic tenets, practices, etc., of other religions. As a Hindu, I made it my business to know the fundamentals of other religions, as well, in order to value my own religion and defend it from derision where ever I see and experience it.

The Hindu today has no excuse for not knowing the fundamentals of his religion, because of the Internet, where I can say I learned an enormous amount, in conjunction with the teachings of Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba. The knowledge is available to all in English, especially people like me who know no Indian language in which most Hindu thought is written.

It must be the duty of all Hindus to give their children a taste of the depth of Hindu taught to the extent theycan. Hindus may be too broad minded that they leave their children like lambs to the Christian and Muslim slaughter when they give their children the choice of a religion without first teaching them all they know about Hinduism.

I met so many Hindus who know so little about Hinduism, and I also met so many who are so knowledgeable about Hinduism, much beyond my belief.

The problem of shaming comes when Hindus mostly cannot understand the language of symbolism in Hinduism, as well as how to use their understanding of Islam and Christianity to show them how illogical they may be in their own religion when they try to deride Hindu practices and concepts of God.

I made it my business for the last ten years to combat Christian and Muslim derision of Hinduism by their lack of understanding about Hinduism and to show them the similarities in their own religions with Hinduism.

I further made it my business to research and show Christians and Muslims how Hinduism is the mother of all religions, and the connections of their religions with Hinduism.

See equal souls by William Glick, (Isa Dass) http://www.equalsouls.org/index-2.html. I had learned about the Hindu connections with Islam and Christianity in my research, but never about Judaism until I saw the video series "Om Namah Shivayah" and compared the struggles between the Devas and Asuras with similar struggles in Judaism. Then by chance I discovered the link by William Glick shown above. Now I use it every chance I get to make the point of Hinduism as the mother of all religions.

Hindus can do more by enrolling on Hindu, Christian and Muslim Forums and show the illogics of any derision of Hinduism by presenting Hinduism as a vibrant and noble religion that is attractive to many Christians and also Muslims due to the Hindu way of life.
