Hindu Dharma is a not a free for all

Hindu tradition has a bunch of context sensitive rules. It does expect a lot from its followers. If you have an interest in tradition and/or if your immediate family, community is not deracinated you will know that much.

Now you as a follower of that tradition may not be able to hit 100% compliance on every occasion. But you may aim to pass with 35-40%. You will be content with it but you know you can do better and tell yourself that next time I will do better.

But the liberal mind seems to operate differently.

Why am I on 25%? Which rules did I not comply with? Who created these rules? They are outdated. They are optional. They are unjust. Where is it written that I should do this? What about Indus valley civilization?

Every rule isn’t sacrosanct. What about Sati Devadasi Temple Entry bill and Sulphuric acid ( at this point argument gets very weird so you can practically insert anything). Do you know about Hindus in Finland? They are rich and happy they don’t follow all this. Blah blah.

Blame the exacting standards of the process but not one turn inwards and blame your own failings, limitations etc.

If a majority of Hindus take to this flavour of liberalism where defiance of tradition is celebrated and not compliance then things will go downhill for Hindus with an accelerated pace.
