have recounted my journey and the bridges over which I once

western culture to the yogic culture of India that seemed ever more
expansive, enlightened and happy.

ancient Vedas, the oldest wisdom teachings of India, which
became my spiritual home and in which I found an untapped treasure
house of inexhaustible insight. It was a great adventure with many
interesting, if not amazing experiences that transcended my earlier
worldview and brought me into a new life and consciousness.
But the journey was arduous and quite challenging.
I often thought of turning back and actually did so for certain
periods of time. I fell down many times but always eventually got up
and kept on going. I had to go beyond not only my own personal and
family background but beyond my entire culture and education.
