Someone on Facebook in a Hindu group posts a chart of Hinduism and for modern philosophies it includes only Advaita. A man comments that he’s a born Hindu and doesn’t see himself represented. I note that the chart seems to be missing quite a few sects, branches, and philosophies.
Hindu is group of sects and sect are not rigid like abrahamic religions
So I’m agreeing with him that he doesn’t seem to be represented but his response is to make enormous assumptions about me and my knowledge and my background based on my name. What does any of this have to do with abrahamic religions?
This is why I get sick and tired of being white in an Indian religion. To most people my perspective will never be more than outsider who couldn’t possibly know anything.
