    Hindus need to stop doing this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8zasuy9FBA&eurl

    ^^^Why is a devout, spiritual Hindu scholar sucking up to the likes of Naik? When Muslims start being more tolerant towards Eastern traditions, then maybe dialogue can start. Until then speeches like this hurt our position especially when the sentiments are not reciprocated. Naik is undoubtedly one of the most crooked public speakers I've ever seen.

    Namaste Khadgar,

    I didn't watch the full video, but the first thing I would question is: who is this man? It is known that there are many fake shankaracharyas out there ~ men who put on the garb of a shankarcharya, deceive people and claim to the rightful heirs to the shankaracharya posts. There are about 50 of them in existence according to the Shankaracharya of Puri. Some of these "imposter" Shankaracharyas are known to participate in these sorts of things. I don't know however whether the man in this video is a real or fake shankaracharya.

    Namaste Khadgar, Satay,

    No true shankaracharya would go to an Islamic gathering and tell them to translate the Qu'ran and spread its teachings to Hindus. It is as I expected. The man in the video is a fake shankaracharya. He goes by the name Madhavanand Saraswati and is a self-proclaimed shankarachraya of Prayag. He is also one of the three claimants for the position of Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath. He is not accepted by any Hindu groups, political or religious, and in fact he is opposed by them. Therefore, he has been with other side for a long time ("enemy's enemy is my friend" approach).

    Back in 1999, this man was the only "Hindu leader" to meet with the previous pope during his controversial visit to India. Here he is pictured with the Pope.



    Enough said.

    OM Shanti,
    A.

    Wow.... there must be a way to flush out fakers such as him. I'm just appalled.

    I do not speak whatever language the self-proclaimed Shankaracharya was speaking, so I don't know exactly what he was saying, would someone mind providing me with a translation?

    Dear Satay: Please hold your emotions, no need to use four letter profanity word, no need to talk about material things like clothes or some necklace and no need to bring this forum down. When we sit on the solid Advaita rock which is none other than the foundation for freedom and Love there is nothing that can shake that.
    PS; Did you get to read my posting on Adoption?

    Thank you

    Greetings vcindiana;

    Nothing can shake Vedic Philosophy and Eastern spirituality, true; but we're not talking about shaking... we're talking about our Eastern traditions being systematically demeaned by Abrahamism, and more specifically people like the faker in that video who are ready and willing to suck up to Abrahamics without knowing who he/she is appeasing. The man is seemingly defending Naik... Naik-- a pseudo-intellectual who believes non-Muslims [Kafirs] are essentially so low that we can't calculate 2+2.

    The self-proclaimed shankaracharya is speaking in Hindi in the video. Here’s a paraphrased version of his most important points he makes:

    1. He has started a movement to teach that Islam is humanity’s greatest teaching religion

    2. Islam is not a religion spread by the sword ~ this is a false notion created by some people

    3. The essence of the Veda has been extracted by prophet Muhammed in the Qur'an, and so the Qur'an is the greatest book in existence

    4. If the entire world were to become Muslim, that wouldn’t be a bad thing because Islam is a religion taught by God, and not a man-made religion

    5. Some people criticize Muslims and Islam ~ these people are children of satan, and not of God.

    6. Some organizations are creating divisions between Hindus and Muslims, so an ordinary Hindu person does not understand the difference between Islam and Sanatana Dharma.

    7. Sanatana Dharma is NOT different from Islam, and “Hindu Dharma” is not a dharma at all.

    8. What is called Sanatana is Sanskrit is merely called Islam in another language.

    9. God is One, the sages tell us, and our prophet Muhammed said it too (repeated it).

    10. If we make this book (Qur'an) available to all people that will be a noble act.

    11. (Addressing Muslims): Make this book (Qur'an) available to all people, to all your neighbors in their language. If the Qur'an reaches everyone in the world, there will certainly be peace everywhere.

    12. This Shankaracharya will do anything for you, even lose his head in the defense of Islam.

    13. What is written in the Veda is written in the Qur'an.

    14. As long as I have life left in my body, I will continue to come to such (Islamic) meetings in the defense of Islam.

    A.
