Self-realisation is not something apart.” (Fox, 1995. p109 (Gandhi) “I am an Advatist and yet I can support Dvaitism (dualism). The resolution of this cognitive dissonance is through what is known as ‘confirmation-bias’, where the individuals ignore inconvenient contradictions in order to side with their pre-conceived biases.

There is nothing in Hinduism as complex as caste system. Moral intuitions result in "a redemption of our loyalties and a remaking of our personalities" (IVL 115). It is the way to god through psychophysical experiments. So if you are born rich or poor, it is because of your actions in a previous life. It is with this very basic understanding in mind that yoga should be examined. "Yoga is from the Vedas." - T. I, therefore, know that even a little effort is not wasted" [5].

Most probably, the racial theory of the origin of castes is true. The author, a historian, begins by explaining her family life and ends with the events of 1975. To this day, passive resistance remains a principal form of protestation for those seeking attention for their cause(s). That will be idle sophistry and a travesty of my argument. Shruti (lit. that which is heard) [215] primarily refers to the Veda s, which form the earliest record of the Hindu scriptures', and are regarded as eternal truths revealed to the ancient sages ( rishis ).
