AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
I had more interest in India itself and teachings that were more traditional. I had a serious bent of mind and did not feel satisfied with American groups which were largely social movements or cults centered around one person, in which one's personal relationship with the teacher generally out-weighed any real interest in spiritual studies, which often did not go very far. I have always distrusted mass movements and fads of all types, including the pop spirituality that has developed in the West. 

I came to learn of the teachings of great modern Hindu gurus of India most notably Ramakrishna. Ramana Maharshi, Anandamayi Ma, and Sri Aurobindo. In these teachers and their teachings I felt something truly solid and real. As several of these figures had already passed away, I wrote to their centers in India and developed contact with some of their living disciples. Most notably I corresponded with Anandamayi Ma for several years, who was still alive at the time.
