On Faith (Link)

A potentially useful article here from the Washington Post, On Faith. Various leaders from different religious groups, including Bishop Desmond Tutu, answer the following question:

Can a Christian, Muslim or Jew embrace eastern spiritual practices -- yoga or Buddhist meditation, for example -- and remain true to the laws of the God of Abraham?

Radhe Radhe!

I just want to say thank you very much for the articles in your website that you have so generously shared with the general public.

I would say that they are not only intelligently written because they show a good balance of faith and reason but also reflect a deep individual realizations-- not someone who just parrots.

I think you are one of the best thinkers of the Vaishnava world. And please don’t think my use of the word “thinker” is a put down; I mean that in a good light.

Much appreciative of your efforts
Malati

Jai Radhe, Malati!

Dandavats. Thank you very much for the words of encouragement. I have been trying to write a poem over the last few days and have gotten a bit stuck. Besides this, I have a conference to prepare in Sanskrit for this Friday. It's a bit of challenge (... even for me).

Stay tuned. I will be back.
