Journey of a Western Hindu

Journey of a Western Hindu

At age 13 I had decided to leave the religion of my birth, Christianity, in search of something. At the time I had no idea what I was looking for, or where I would find it. I was simply spurred on by an internal, unquestionable knowing that the relationship between man, God, and the world [...]

Being Hindu was the destiny of my life

Being Hindu was the destiny of my life

My birth name is Chakia Ciara Harris. And I was born to Protestant parents. Throughout my life, I had to spend a lot of time in the church. I would sing, and go to Bible study, and participate in programs. From the outside looking in a person would think that my family was moral and [...]

How I essentially became a Hindu

How I essentially became a Hindu

“Can you imagine – in Europe there are people who believe there is no Bhagawan (God)!” Baba Ramdev, a highly popular yogi, said this to a sea of thousands of Indian schoolchildren with an expression of genuine wonderment on his face. I saw it on TV and it made me smile. He is right. In [...]

How I Embraced Hindu Dharma

How I Embraced Hindu Dharma

For several years now I have identified myself as a believer in Sanatan Dharma. Sometimes I feel comfortable referring to myself as a Hindu, and yet other times I feel quite uncomfortable. I’ll explain why shortly. Embracing the Hindu philosophy has been quite simple for me really. The moment I began reading The Upanishads something [...]

“All men dream,” said T. E. Lawrence, “but not equally.” Artistic, introspective and questioning, even as a child it was clear to those around me that I was, in Lawrence’s terminology, a “dreamer of the day.” I disliked what I regarded as the shallow materialism and trivial ways people interacted in the West. But above [...]

The Way of the Winding Road

The Way of the Winding Road

I became a Hindu by increments. It didn’t happen over night of course. There was no one grand happening that changed my heart and mind. I was fortunate enough to have been raised by a psychology professor who practiced Yoga, meditation, pranayama and chanting; and studied Eastern philosophy and religion. So I grew up around [...]

How and Why I Am a Hindu

How and Why I Am a Hindu

I am an American like many other Americans, born into a family of mixed European and Native American ancestry. My interest in my own origins started early. I knew that my European ancestors were pagans who were converted to Abrahamic faiths, and that my Native ancestors were pagans mostly obliterated by those Europeans. I knew [...]
