    Prophecies of Westerners on Hinduism

    1. Michael Nostradamus (1503-1566)
    "Hinduism will become the ruling religion of Europe. The famous metropolis of Europe is the Hindu capital".
    2. Johann Keith (1749-1832)
    If not today, one day we will have to accept Hinduism. Because that is the true religion".
    3. Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
    "Hinduism and Hindus will one day rule this world because it is a mixture of KNOWLEDGE & WISDOM".
    4. Houston Smith (1919)
    Hindutva is not more trusting than we have in ourselves. If we can turn our thoughts and hearts towards Hindutva, it will benefit us.
    5. Costa Loban (1841-1931)
    "Hindus only talk about peace and reconciliation. I invite Christians to praise, change and believe in it".
    6. Herbert Wells (1846-1946)
    How many generations are going to face atrocities and murders until Hinduism is well understood.?
    But the world will one day be inspired by Hindutva. Only on that day will the world become a place for humans to settle and live."
    7. Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
    "One day this world will accept Hinduism. Refusing to accept the true name of Hinduism will only make one accept its principles.
    Western nations will surely one day convert to Hinduism. The religion of the learned is equal to that of Hinduism".
    8. Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
    He Does what the Jews cannot do. He did it with knowledge and energy."
    "But only Hinduism has the power to lead to peace".
    9. Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)
    "I read about Hinduism. I feel that this is the religion of mankind all over the world. Hinduism spread throughout Europe. Many scholars studying Hinduism will appear in Europe. One day the situation will develop where only Hindus will lead the world. ​

    I hv no knowledge of origins of these quotes attributed to famous people. To verify veracity, one may like to browse through author 's own biographies or their other books.

    HInduism is not a religion, it is the way of life that`s why western personalities were attracted by Hinduism. Good to know all of the quotes.

    Nowadays, quotations are being attributed to celebrities. Mr Ratan Tata had to disown some quotations circulated in his name. So is the case with many other quotes.
    I found this book very interesting-

    What India can teach us by Max Muller.

    Indeed. If I opine something there are no takers. But when I say so and so said this, the world pay attention to that. Media like Whatsap facilitates faster spred of this opinion for reasons right or wrong.
    Thanks for the ref of max Muller book.

    Dear Thyagarajan Sir,

    I am adding the following comments of the philosphers:

    Arthur Schopenhauer:
    “In The Whole World There Is No Study So Beneficial & Elevating As That Of Upanishads (Vedanta). It Has Been The Solace Of My Life And It Will Be Solace Of My Death”
    German Orientalist Max Muller:
    “If Philosophy Or Religion Is Meant To Be Preparation For The After-Life, A Happy Life and Happy Death, I Know Of No Better Preparation For It Than Vedanta”
    Professor Paul Duessen of Kiel, Germany:
    “Vedanta In Its Unfalsified Form, Is The Strongest Support Of Pure Morality, Is The Greatest Consolation On The Sufferings Of Life and Dealth”

    Thank you @Viswamitra for adding inputs here. I thing your quotes state the emphasis much better.
