Why Did Gurudeva Choose Hinduism?

A cyber-devotee in El Paso, Texas, asks how it is that Gurudeva came to pursue Hinduism rather than another religion. Gurudeva tells briefly about his path of first having realizations, then finding confirmation of his realizations in religion and philosophy. Hinduism alone holds all the confirmations of Gurudeva's deepest personal experiences.

Attachment, for instance, holds our cells together; it is also the root of much suffering, for attachment to material objects or people keeps man's awareness externalized, incapable of expressing itself in full freedom.
