Now don’t you wish you could say, like I can, that you are a Smartist (Smarta to be precise), or that you are a follower of Smartism?
I guess my claim to be a follower of Smartism is valid. I was reading up the article on Wikipedia following up on a lead that Aldous Huxley was a Hindu. I have often wondered, since there is no space for proselytization and conversion in Hinduism, as to how someone could become a Hindu if they wanted. The last I thought about it, if one beleives in some fundamental precepts and lays claim to being Hindu – then that is the end of it.
I wish I could say, now, that I am a practising Smarta, which I am not, right now.
