Thanks to “curious” to alerting me to the Barefoot Justine blog, and to Shiva Setep-en Het-Heru for alerting me to The Los Perspective.

For years I had been lost to agnosticism and had sought relief in Taoism, Buddhism, revisited Christianity, and had eventually given up on spirituality altogether.

I have added this blog to my list of blogs by Westerners influenced by Hinduism.

I will expand on this a little more, because in a way I feel that I am following the tradition of my ancestors.
