>everyone is wrong except for me
Jesus will all of his books be like this? So basically after reading this, everything I thought I knew about Hinduism is wrong?
How am I to learn about Hinduism if everything in English/The West is pozzed? I was honestly surprised he called out Vivekanada, I thought he would be one of the few he would approve of, I loved that Swami's lectures on YouTube. They felt authentic, but I guess Guenon would completely disagree.

How do I learn about Hinduism in its true form as a Westerner?

By reading all of Guenon's books on it. Also don't expect to love Guenon after one or two books, you didn't even read the metaphysical ones.

Btw, Coomaraswamy also have some books on hinu art and you can find his essays on hinduism in general, he was in complete agreememt with Guenon but he was a scholar, maybe you will prefer his style.

If you mean Swami Sarvpriyananda (pbuh) who posts his stuff on Vivekananda-affiliated accounts, the vast majority of his videos talking about Advaita dont say much that Guenon would disagree with
