Its contribution may be compared only with the contribution of Greek wisdom. When it is said today that India may be a world leader tomorrow, most of it will be contributed by the wisdom of the Hindus. Hinduism is not a religion far less a religious sect. It is not a philosophy. It is a style of living, an integrated approach to human life based on the fundamental facts of human nature and man’s status in the Universe. The style and characteristic approach of Hinduism is multi-sided, electric, synoptic, integrated and developmental. This will undoubtedly play a significant role in the future development of humanity.
