First version (the most evident one!) is the export of the own religious concept in a missionary way to other country’s and mostly to those class of society who are easy targets for proselytism. See the evangelic sects in Brazil , Africa or amongst the Rom community or other self declared “light bringers” of any pious zealot background using their doctrine versions to gain worldly power.

Second version, the import (and export through those guru&sect “wisdom”marketing delivery country’s) of “holiness” through a common meme of a better “Asian spirituality” avoiding the issues in those country’s like social apartheid or corruption to full fill a gap of sense of the middle class unwilling to truly change globally the parameters towards more social justice impacting the own wealth& lifestyle, but wants “nice”(nescius/ignorant) recomfort through  golden member club “being good” group belonging in tourist “relaxing” exclusivity, exotic enough to not recognise the feudal authoritarian neoplatonism of body(animal)/mind(soul) split they might have had the wish to overcome “at home” and the “not spiritual at all social&ecological ” environment” (the use of coloured glasses recommended).Not to mention the multiple “feel good, get successful, everything is fine !” business mixing all kind of superficial imported and home grown “its your own luck if life smiles at you in turbo capitalism”affirmations to a cynical cocktail . A distraction more from reality.

On a cross point of history, we can either retrograde to a fantasy of immature subordination to dogmas (and clergy’s and “enlighten”  father/mother figures…assuming enlightenment as another hierarchical wealth resource “for the best”) pretending to “care” for us (please leave your critical mind at the door!) or mature up to a responsible common handling of a disastrous reality, with self awareness in the individual and interconnected sense.
