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.

We must live in the now to follow the path to enlightenment. In the lower realms of the mind, where time and space seem very real, we are worried about the past or concerned about the future. These two intermingle and limit conscious awareness.
