Sometime back, I had a series of discussions with people who weren’t born Hindus but now have embraced Hinduism. I wanted to ask them about their experience and reasons for taking such a journey. Here is a discussion with Tāṇḍava Nadesan, who runs a blog Western Hindu, which I am sure you will profit from.
1. How did you know for the first time that you were a “Hindu”? What did it mean?
2. Beyond all the ideological stuff, what is it about Hinduism that appeals to you?
3. Since everyone can have a God of his/her own making (out of the 330 million already articulated), people find Hinduism to be a maze. A confusing amalgam of “stuff”. How do you make sense of it all?
4. In your spiritual journey, what is it that you look forward to? If you had all the time, will, health and resources, what would you like to do?
5. In the world of evangelists and Islamists, how can and should Hinduism hold its own?
6. Given that you have come to Hinduism from “outside”, what would be your advise to Indian Hindus?
