I know that different Gods, or different manifestations of Ultimate Reality, are worshiped in different regions. Furthermore, there is a lot of linguistic diversity across Bhārat.
So, I'm wondering:
- Is it difficult to practice a form of Sānātana Dharma that differs from the majority in a particular area?
For example, there are many temples to Ganesha in Maharashtra. But, I think there are few in Uttar Pradesh. So, is it difficult for Ganesha devotees to practice in Uttar Pradesh?
- If someone is devoted to a particular deity, should they try to live nearer a temple dedicated to that one?
- Is it difficult to discuss philosophy & scriptures in a region which predominantly speaks a different language? For example, is it difficult for someone from Kashmir to discuss the Bhagavad Gita with someone in Tamil Nadu?
