By the way needed to correct:
Heidigger, a student of Husserl objected to Husserl to not remaining true to his original project and created his own phenomenology. Again there was a dharmic influence on Heidigger, he was heavily inspired by the Kyoto school of philosophy, but again he did not acknowledge his sources.
While im at it I will say a few words on supermacy. I am getting criticised on this forum by many members both Indian and Western(less Indian, more Western) for saying Hinduism/dharmic culture is superior? But the supremacy of Western culture and philosophy is taken for granted by everybody. Even Yogimat earlier tried to force us to comply by the null hypothesis assuming its superiorty and the null hypothesis comes from where? Western culture. It is automatically assumed that Western democracy, Western science, Western technology is modernism, advancement and progress. What is this, if not the assertion of Western superiority?
When I say the following words in the West: Hinduism, caste system, India, Bollywood. I immediately get the following definitions from people Hinduism = a religion where they have millions of gods, like monkey gods, elephant gods, rat gods; caste system = a really evil and oppressive system where people are forced into work based on their birth and where there are untouchables; india = poor, illiterate third world country and land of call centers Bollywood = The movies of India where they break out into song and dance every 5 min, are all stories about people getting married, and they are melodramatic and unrealistic. I have heard these stereotypes from even educated Western people. Now, here is what is surprising: when I tell them that these are just streotypes and proceed to give the right information, they respond that I am biassed, Indian nationalist, romantic, revisionist. Thus they automatically assume their Western version is true and ours is false. The same happened during colonial times in India, everything we had to say about our history, culture, philosophy and religion was false - and whatever the West said about us was true.
I mean look at this thread alone a few people have posted here saying don’t say Yoga is Hinduism because Hinduism is about caste system, cows and worship of monkeys and elephants and Yoga is a science of spirituality. If we correct these stereotypes, we are told we are Indian nationalists. So as a Hindu I should not be expected to have more knowledge on Hinduism than some ignorant Westerner whose not even read the Gita? What is this if not Western supremacy?
And then if I do the unthinkable and say that actually it is not the West that is superior, but it is the other way around, the Hindus are superior. Then I become a demon? An extremist? A fundamentalist? My Indian friends and well wishers, see through the propoganda you get fed in the West. Recognise the Western supermacy you get indoctrinated with - and reject it. I will repeat: Hindu culture is more superior than the West. Everything we have is of a superior quality.
