Why is Hinduism always first door to enter the mystic autism club?
Savitri Devi, Miguel Serrano, Guenon-fags, Evola, and all this type of shit
What makes it so appealing to autistics? Is it the indo-european shit or some other theological thing that I have no fucking clue?

To me it’s the other way around. You become a mystic then you join Hinduism. You see most western mystics were denounced and opposed by the church, but the doctrines that in the west were branded as heretical are openly embraced by Hinduism. You got to practice and believe what you always wanted without having to hide your beliefs for fear of repercussions; on your contrary the beliefs validated by the religion, which psychologically also plays a role.
I know this because I always favored a mystical interpretation of Christianity but listening to priests hammering down: “heretical, heretical” is demoralizing and having to keep that a secret is stressful.

Because it (the religion of the vedas) is a cousin branch of the same tree that the Old Norse religion (itself the father of Germanic and Anglo-Saxon Paganism) belongs to.

1. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), American Philosopher, Unitarian, social critic, transcendentalist and writer:

"In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seems puny."

"What extracts from the Vedas I have read fall on me like the light of a higher and purer luminary, which describes a loftier course through purer stratum. It rises on me like the full moon after the stars have come out, wading through some far stratum in the sky."

"In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages, climes and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge."

"I would say to the readers of the Scriptures, if they wish for a good book, read the Bhagvat-Geeta .... translated by Charles Wilkins. It deserves to be read with reverence even by Yankees...."Besides the Bhagvat-Geeta, our Shakespeare seems sometimes youthfully green... Ex oriente lux may still be the motto of scholars, for the Western world has not yet derived from the East all the light it is destined to derive thence."

Thoreau, the Concord sage, said, "The Vedanta teaches how by 'forsaking religious rites' the votary may obtain purification of mind." And "One sentence of the Gita, is worth the State of Massachusetts many times over".7
Along with Emerson , he published essays on Hindu scriptures in a journal called The Dial.

2. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), German writer and certainly one of the greatest philosophers of the 19th century. He was the first Western philosopher to have access to translations of philosophical material from India, both Vedic and Buddhist, by which he was profoundly affected.

"From every sentence (of the Upanishads) deep, original and sublime thoughts arise, and the whole is pervaded by a high and holy and earnest spirit....

"In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. It has been the solace of my life -- it will be the solace of my death. 8.

To Schopenhauer, the Upanishads were documents of 'almost superhuman conception,' whose authors could hardly be thought of as 'mere mortals.'

He spoke of India as the 'fatherland of mankind' which 'gave the original religion of our race,' and he expressed the hope that European peoples, 'who stemmed from Asia,...would re-attain the religion of their home.'
He believed that the Upanishads, together with the philosophies of Plato and Kant, constituted the foundation on which to erect a proper philosophy of representation. It was the Upanishads' analysis of the self which caused Schopenhauer to stamp them as " the product of the highest human wisdom". He dedicated himself to this task, producing his magnum opus, The World as Will and Representation, in 1819. This is what he says in this book:

"We, on the contrary, now send to the Brahmans English clergymen and evangelical linen-weavers, in order out of sympathy to put them right, and to point out to them that they are created out of nothing, and that they ought to be grateful and pleased about it. But it is just the same as if we fired a bullet at a cliff. " In India, our religions will never at any time take root; the ancient wisdom of the human race will not be supplanted by the events in Galilee. On the contrary, Indian wisdom flows back to Europe, and will produce a fundamental change in our knowledge and thought." 9.

Schopenhauer regarded the Hindus as deeper thinkers than Europeans because their interpretation of the world was internal and intuitive, not external and intellectual. For intuition unites everything, the intellect divides everything. The Hindus saw that the "I" is a delusion, that the individual is merely phenomenal, and that the only reality is the Infinite One "That art Thou"

10 Lord Warren Hastings (1754-1826), was the first governor general of British India. Hastings was very much impressed with Hindu philosophy:

"The writers of the Indian philosophies will survive, when the British dominion in India shall long have ceased to exist, and when the sources which it yielded of wealth and power are lost to remembrances." 11

4. Ralph Waldo Emerson, (1803-1882) author, essayist, lecturer, philosopher, Unitarian minister said this about the Gita:

" I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. It was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us."12

Repelled by the increasing materialism of the West, Emerson turned to India for solace:
" The Indian teaching, through its clouds of legends, has yet a simple and grand religion, like a queenly countenance seen through a rich veil. It teaches to speak truth, love others, and to despose trifles." 13

His famous poem " Brahma" is an example of his Vedantic ecstasy. 14

5. Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767- 1835), Prussian minister of education, a brilliant linguist and the founder of the science of general linguistics. Humboldt began to learn Sanskrit in 1821 and was greatly moved by Schlegel's edition of the Bhagavad Gita, on which he published an extensive study and which he pronounced as:

"The most beautiful, perhaps the only true philosophical song existing in any known tongue ....perhaps the deepest and loftiest thing the world has to show." 15

He thanked God for having permitted him to live long enough to become acquainted with the Gita. 16

Buddha was said to be very beautiful. Since the description speaks of colored hair not just on his head, he must be taken to have been hairy to an extent that was visible. There's also the mention of a single long hair that was noticeable between his brows, but they were otherwise separated, so he probably had minor hair between them, or at least that one special long follicle. But yeah, Buddha wasn't popular and charismatic for nothing. You can easily google this information in various translations.

>"From whatever new points of view the Buddha's system is tested with reference to its probability, it gives way on all sides, like the walls of a well, dug in sandy soil. It has, in fact, no foundation whatever to rest upon and hence the attempts to use it as a guide in the practical concerns of life are mere folly. Moreover Buddha, by propounding the three mutually contradicting systems, teaching respectively the reality of the external world, the reality of ideas only and general nothingness, has himself made it clear that he was a man given to make incoherent assertions or else that hatred of all beings induced him to propound absurd doctrines by accepting which they would become thoroughly confused…Buddha’s doctrine has to be entirely disregarded by all those who have a regard for their own happiness."

Nagarjuna was refuted by Richard Robinson (pic related) as a result of Nagarjuna's failure to fully work out the ideas that he got from the Upanishads. He is a mere footnote to history and can be forgotten along with a whole host of other failed thinkers. Only the great and infallible Shankaracharya (pbuh) fully worked out the doctrines of the Upanishads, and unlike Nagarjuna he's never been refuted.

I don’t know if anyone here is spiritual or into psychs but I’ve done DMT on 3 separate occasions. People always talk about how you meet entities on DMT, and I have only met an entity on one of these occasions.

I’ve read a lot of “trip reports” beforehand and people always talk about meeting machine elves or gnomes. Entities that act in jest and mess around with you. Going into it I always expected to see that. The only entity I have ever experienced looked like a Hindu-type god. A blue women sitting cross legged with 6-8 arms twirling in a circle, blowing kisses at me. It looked like pic.

I was raised catholic and never studied the Hindu religion. It was odd to me that while on heavy dosage of psychedelics the first entity I meet is a Hindu-god. I assume their religion is heavily based off of psychedelic usage. Maybe something in our psyche that creates these artifacts? It would make a lot of sense to me that kids who are into spirituality and psychedelic use would follow Hindu religion.
