Therefore, crores of foreigners get attracted and shifted towards Hinduism for peace, better life, love, Moksha etc. However, Americans are the one who largely gets attracted towards Hinduism to earn peace.
Danae King who is a Faith & Values Reporter at The Columbus Dispatch giving the true example has said that yoga, meditation, Vegetarianism and more drawing Americans to Hinduism. However, it’s not only Americans but peoples across the world get attracted towards Hinduism because of its unique culture and motivational diaspora.
Daena gives the example of Andrea McCanney who had tried everything to cure her depression: doctors, medicine and all the Western world had to offer. But nothing worked, then at the urging of a friend in 2011, she went to Nithyanandeshwara Hindu Temple in Delaware County. She sat in front of a live video feed from India of the temple’s guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, and after trying his techniques, she began to feel better.
“He gives you direction,” said McCanney, of Delaware. “He gives you techniques, a little thing to try. You do it enough times and it really starts to change everything about your life. It gives you a new perspective.”Three months later she went to India to learn more. Now, she’s the ritual coordinator at the temple and Nithyananda gave her the name Gurupriya Nithya, which she will soon make her legal name.
There are thousands of such real examples exists in the whole world. Crores of foreigners visit India in search of peace and they get it, most of the Foreigners believe in Lord Krishna, many in Lord Shiva etc. Also, `it is proved that the whole world is slowly attracting towards India or Hinduism as it stands for equality, dearness etc.
