Sunday...In the Age of Aquarius

If you walk into a mass-market bookstore you will eventually pass the section devoted to 'spirituality'. The bulk of the books there will be devoted to some type of "New Age" religion or philosophy.

Has the Age of Aquarius come? And if so, is it a good thing?

Vishal Mangalwadi doesn't think it is much good. He is an Indian social reformer and respected thinker. His book on the legacy of William Carey argued that India's Renaissance and subsequent independence had more to do with this English missionary than Mahatma Ghandi. Such statements are shocking to political correctness!

Mangalwadi is intimately familiar with Hinduism, and other Eastern religions which spawned the Hollywood-style New Age movement that we see today.

He thinks that the New Age is getting old.

But for all the ex-hippies who followed the Beatles' spiritual path...maybe it's time for them to let it be.

It's is passe as they say. Anti-God seems to be the theme of the day.

Well said, Aizlynne.
