"Indeed, at the beginning of the 20th Century, "the brightest jewel in the British Crown" was the poorest country in the world in terms of per capita income. However, what is significant about the Indo-British relationship is the fact that despite the economic impact of colonial rule, the relationship between individual Indians and Britons, even at the time of our Independence, was relaxed and, I may even say, benign"|
"How did this happen?"
The answer to this question lies in India's culture...a deeply spiritual one. Hinduism, the main 'religion' of India, an old and encompassing system of thought, in essence is not even a religion. It's a philosophy, a way of life. There are striking similarities between Daojiao and Hinduism (in their outlook).
Hinduism, a philosophy that teaches love and acceptance, peace and 'shanti' (the inner peace) among many other things, also gives its believers a lot of latitude to explore, understand and integrate...integrate, not into a religion but into the environment...the cosmos and the endless creation.
