SPIRITUAL PATHS AND DISCOVERY OF THE VEDAS 
Of the different teachings that I contacted Vedanta struck the deepest cord. I remember once climbing a hill by Denver with a friend. When we got to the top, I had the feeling that I was immortal, that the Self in me was not limited by birth and death and had lived many lives before. 

Such Vedantic insights seemed natural, but the friend who was with me at the time didn’t understand what I was talking about. With my philosophical bent of mind I also studied several Buddhist Sutras, especially the Lankavatara, which I found to be intellectually profound. The Buddhist Sutras helped serve as a bridge between the existentialism that I had studied earlier and eastern meditation traditions. 

As I encountered these teachings at a young age before my mind had become fixed, I had the benefit of an almost eastern education to complement my western studies.
