Kedar Joshi’s Quotations related to India

This is a list of my quotations related to India. All of these quotations are available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.

"The difference between Hinduism and other religions is the difference between truth and falsehood."

"It’s a Hindu universe."

"हे विश्वहिंदू आहे." (Marathi)

"I am in fact an ardent believer and practicer of Hindu astrology and am an impassioned devotee of Lord Rama. Hindu astrology has appeared to me to be so profoundly and minutely true that I am on the verge of conviction that the ultimate truth is not beyond Hinduism."

"My profoundest as well as minutest experiences of Hindu astrology tell me astonishingly that the Truth is in Hinduism."

"I am happy, purely as a seeker, that I have found Hinduism as a probable truth, but at the same time I am not happy that I have found it to entail nearly the same deep-rooted evil and immorality which I discern in other religions such as Islam and Christianity."

"मी ज्योतिषशास्त्र नुसतं शिकलेलो नाही तर ते विस्मयकारकरित्या जगलोय." (Marathi)

"ज्योतिषशास्त्राला थोतांड समजणाऱ्या, परंतु त्याचा फारसा गंधही नसलेल्या, आधुनिक विज्ञान व तत्त्वज्ञानाचे तोकडे ज्ञान असलेल्या, अर्ध्या हळकुंडाने पिवळ्या झालेल्या, पूर्वग्रहदूषित, हेकेखोर व्यक्तिंना व अंधश्रद्धा निर्मूलन समितीवाल्यांना बळी पडू नका. ज्योतिषशास्त्र, तसेच हिंदू धर्म व अध्यात्म अत्यंत महान आहेत! त्यांचे ज्ञान, अनुभूति व लाभ घेण्याचा प्रयत्न करा." (Marathi)

"ज्योतिषशास्त्राला अंधश्रद्धा मानणारी अंधश्रद्धा निर्मूलन समिती ही स्वतःच अंधश्रद्ध आहे." (Marathi)

"हिन्दू धर्माचा सूर्य पाहू न शकणाऱ्या दुर्दैवी अंधांना ज्योतिषशास्त्राचे डोळेही पुरेसे आहेत." (Marathi)

"I find Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of expelling the British from India’s administration inconsistent with his idea of Satyagraha and universal brotherhood. If he were truly passionate about kindling the flame of universal love and brotherhood in the hearts of men, with the power of Satyagraha, he would have instead longed and strived to unite the British and the Indians, Britain and India, into one, greater, homogeneous people and nation, making a platform for the universal union, as he did ardently and relentlessly with the Hindus and the Muslims for one, united India. Gandhi, on certain key points, appears to be very un-Gandhi."

"When I see India, I understand how great England is! When I see England, I realise how great India is!"

"India is a great soul dwelling in a wrecked body."
