My Initiations

Since the question of my initiation has come up again, let me tell you a little story about myself by way of analogy.

Inner vs Outward Practice

I used to be quite an ecstatic dancer in kirtan, but now I don’t do that. I think it’s a cultural practice that just isn’t part of the culture I live in. Now kirtan is my wife and I chanting sitting before our home altar. Just as the Orissa devotees moved from loud kirtans to […]
