Inhaltsangabe: Modernism which has become a self-conscious and very powerful intellectual and cultural factor in the global inter-religious competition. There is the old Indian Buddhism which is deeply rooted in Hindu culture. There is Ambedkar, the great leader of the Untouchables and fighter against caste system, who prevented his Dalit comrades from conversion to Christianity or Islam, and encouraged them to stay in the world of Indo-genous culture by entering Neo-Buddhism. There are anti-karmistic Hindu religions fighting against the rule of karma: arul (selfless grace), bhakti (selfless love) and seva (selfless service) are their basic religious ideas. The Indo-genous religions are deeply connected by puja whatever objects may be worshipped; Sikhs worship the Holy Book, the Granth, as their Guru and Lord; Iskcon worships Krishna and has reconstructed the puja even in the West.
