I just read this article today and thought it was really great. I have spent the better part of a month trying to explain to my partner how there really is no Hindu religion…not in the way that we usually mean “religion”. Josh Schrei , in using the concept of “open source” and “closed source” software really does a magnificent job of explaining the main difference between Hinduism and the rest of the major world religions… Now, if only I could explain the concept of “open source” and “closed source” software to my technologically challenged partner! 🙂
