What are your thoughts on Savitri Devi? Has any one of you heard of her? She wrote the book titled "A warning to Hindus" and was originally a European or grecian woman, who fell in love with india's culture, migrated here and contributed to the freedom struggle. She also supported the nazi party at the time and was accussed on charges of fascism.
She spent her last years in India, if I'm not wrong.
Yes, that is her in the picture and this is a quote from "A warning to Hindus"
"They are the body of Hinduism, of which the high philosophies and spiritual realisations are the everlasting soul. Our point is that Hindu society must not perish; nor must it stagnate in its present state of weakness. We want it to live because we know it can be mighty and beautiful, and also, because it is Indian, nay, because it is India herself. We have no other reason to defend it."
And another one:
"First of all, Hinduism has developed in India. All its immense mythology (the most important part of it, for those who are not merely intellectuals; and how many are intellectuals wholesale?) is closely linked with the Indian soil. Its Gods and Goddesses are, no doubt, world-forces, philosophically, but practically, socially, they are Indians. Most Indians cannot realise yet what an advantage it is for them, as a nation, to be the compatriots of their Gods and Goddesses. Every country is sacred to those who love it. But India is the field of worldly play, (lila kshetra,) of all those Gods, Goddesses, Rishis and Incarnations, whom the Hindu Scriptures speak about, of whom the Hindu children know the names and the marvellous stories; to whom incense is burnt, and flowers offered, in the Hindu temples, shrines, and homes. And this gives to India’s sacredness a religious sanction. The love of an Indian for his soil (if that Indian be a Hindu), is not an ordinary patriotism, like that of an Englishman or a Frenchman. It is also reverence for the land of the Gods."
