AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
My father went to college only briefly, not completing a single year, and served in the army during World War II. Though both my parents were open minded they never oriented me in the direction of India or any-thing mystical. Yet my mother in particular did encourage a religious attitude in me according to her Catholic background.  I myself went to Catholic school until the fifth grade (age ten). We were taught to look on Protestants with suspicion. 

Asia was like another world, a land of backward, primitive people needing conversion, and we were taught that Asian religions like Hinduism or Buddhism were pagan, if not demonic. After much moving of our residence from city to city, and from state to state, as my father was a realtor, we finally settled down in Denver, Colorado in the Rocky Mountain region. There, owing to the financial burden of so many children, we switched to public school which brought us out of the shell of Catholic beliefs, and first exposed me seriously to the realm of science, which I found much more appealing and expansive to my mind than the church.
