A NEW WESTERN HINDUISM
I see Hinduism as a religion eminently suited for
all lands and for all people because it requires that we connect
with the land and its creatures that we align our individual
self with the soul of all beings around us. Hinduism finds holy
places everywhere, wherever there is a river, a mountain, a
large rock, or big tree, wherever some unusual natural
phenomenon be it a spring, a cave, or a geyser.
this way I can speak of an American Hinduism and call myself an
American and a Hindu an American connected with the land and a
Hindu connected with the spirit and soul of that land. Hinduism has
helped me discover the forces of nature in which I live, their past
and their future, their unique formations and their connections with
the greater universe and the cosmic mind.
