AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
Why would an American dedicate himself to studying the ancient Vedas of India ? And how could an American, coming from a totally different cultural background, find deep affinity with the Vedic teachings, which most Hindus today themselves can't even relate to ? How did such a person get started in studying the Vedas ? In the modern world everyone, including Hindus, appears to be trying to adopt Western culture with its scientific and technological advances and economic affluence.

Why would a person go in the other direction and look to the East, particularly when it was not a matter of academic study, nor did it promise any material reward ?  As I have written many books and articles on the Vedas and travelled through America and India over the past few years promoting Vedic knowledge, I am often asked such questions, particularly by Hindus in India or Indo-Americans, who usually do not have the time and are lacking in the motivation to examine their own tradition.
