Hindu society on the rise: Bhagwat

Hindu society is now on an ascendant path, spreading its wisdom to the world, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said. Mr. Bhagwat was addressing the second World Hindu Congress (WHC), coinciding with the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s speech at the Parliament of World Religions in 1893 in Chicago. Abhay Asthana, president of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) and coordinator of the WHC, said 2,500 delegates from 60 countries were attending the event.
“We have stopped our descent, we are now contemplating our ascent. We are no longer an enslaved society, we are no longer a downtrodden nation. People of the world are in dire need of our ancient wisdom,” Mr. Bhagwat said.
The RSS chief said Hindu society had all knowledge but stopped using it for several centuries. “In India, everyone used to know that money is not everything. But why are we suffering for thousand years? We had everything and we knew everything. We forgot to practise what we knew. We also forgot to work together,” he said.
