An email sent by me to a learned friend of mine: I am sorry that I am unable to reply most of your questions now, because my knowledge is limited. I shall study them in depth. When I get enough confidence, I shall send you a detailed reply. But, pl. permit me to be clear. Marxism, which I have tried to re-engineer, & rename as Total Socialism (or) Equalism is my priority. Getting rid of religion is only a tool and sub-goal.
ABOUT THE ABOVE QUOTE FROM FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE
I am not an expert on the philosophy of Shri Friedrich Nietzsche. Yet, the above quote from Nietzsche tempts me to expose my ignorance. These are ybrao-a-donkey's views, with which you are not obliged to concur. You are welcome to differ.
Actually, human life is not suffering. Probably animal lives may be sufferings. Then, the degree of the anguish or feeling of pain which animals may have in leading their lives, our scientific community has to unveil.
Many Hindu philosophers also seem to view that Life is suffering, and this Life is a suffering concept, made some Hindu philosophers to say that humans have to try to aim at 'mOksham or mukti', a liberation from the Cycle of Deaths and Births. Some, Indians may be apprehensive that their future rebirths may even be those of some "animals", in which case their sufferings will get multiplied. Hence, this dual desire to avoid future animal births, and YET UNCEASINGLY enjoy this REAL ESTATE + GOLD + FOOD + WOMEN life at the same time.
Actually, Human Life is an opportunity, to drink it upto its sediment. Though for the poorest, sometimes, life causes utmost hardships, Indian Poor never (in my opinion) considers that Life is misery.
Adi Shankara's philosophy slightly differed. ---> Humans have to distinguish between what is ephemeral and what is eternal. This realisation makes a person to act dispassionately, and without attachments (nissangam or sanga rAhityam). This freedom from attachments makes him-her to act like a "sAkshi i.e. witness" to the whole Universe. Of course, an ephemeral sAkshi, like a bubble.
Our beloved Selfie-conscious Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi seems to have a different view. Else, he will not go behind Bill Gates, Zuckersberg, Adanis, Ambanis, FICCIs, CIIs, ASSOCHAMs. At the same time, he says that India will export Spirituality to the World. What Spirituality?
I reproduce below gist of an Email message sent by me to a friend of mine, as I thought that some of the issues raised therein needs an extensive and intensive discussion.

Replacing one religion with another religion, or patronising one cult over another cult, is like "changing a mill-stone" around a person's neck or, a boulder over a person's back with another bigger boulder.
About VaishNavism, you can find seven parts already written by me at http://problemsoftelugus.blogspot.com, about Lord Venkateswara, Tirumala Tirupati Temple. You may already be aware that VishNu and Lakme Mathe were Scandinavian Indo-European Prototype Gods. They were the Gods of the White Races. Krishna and Rama were black, because they were borrowed by Whites from Native Indian Cultures, and their stories (Ramay, Bharata, Bhagav) were spread by Black Yadava Kings, who had some affinity with the White Yadava KIngs.
Lord Shiva (worshipping phallus i.e. genital organs both penis and yOni) was also imported from South Europe.
Christianity called them pagan Cults and tried to destroy them.
Funnily, the same VaishNava and Saiva migrants tried to destroy Native Indian Cultures and replace them with VishNu + Phallus. This started much during Gupta periods and peaked till Ghori vanquished everybody. Tikkana's Hariharanath, Vijayanagara Founder's name "Harihara RAyalu" indicates this European Combined ride over the Native Indian Cultures. You may be aware Tikkana slaughtered hundreds of Jains, with the help of Kakati Ganapati Deva. By the time of the founding of Vijayanagara Empire, Harihara and Bukka realised that there is a need for Unity of all Hindu Cults (according to Shankaracharya shaN-mArga Shiva, Vishnu, Ganapati, Kumaraswamy, Devi and SUrya), as survival of Indian Culture became a burning question, owing to very large scale idol-breaking spree by Muslims.
What I am trying to do at my blog http://problemsofelugus.blogspot.com, is creating awareness among people and intellectual upgradation of the proletariat, which is a thousand years task, to be done by thousands of Indians. Not only me, who is already 65/66. Marxism and Communism, these words I am not able to use, because they have lost their democratic touch.
Total Socialism needs democracy "more" than Capitalism. Whereas Communism and Marxism thrive on dictatorships, in the guise of Dictatorship of Proletariat.
With best wishes, I remain.
