Savitri Era Religion is growing fast

[The big counter-example to what I’m saying is of course Pentecostalism, which is one of the fastest-growing things in the world outside the realm of speculative finance. But Pentecostalism does not seem to me to be in the mainstream of religions — it is one of the only movements I can think of in history that has tried to produce something like a “religious” or “mystical” experience on a mass basis...I don’t think it’s an accident that Pentecostalism started in America, given that our society is so radically defined by the Enlightenment privatization of religion...

Savitri Era Religion, too, is growing fast, and far and wide. A political party, in order to garner maximum support, does not discriminate between different religions. A religion, similarly, takes care not to pitch for a particular political ideology so that it is able to attract as many people as possible. Though, this survival instinct is the basis of all that goes in the name of secularism, it is deceptively presented as a high ethical principle. [TNM]
