This blog evolved from my interest in spirituality, which began in high school in the early 70's, when I started soul searching. I read Ralph Waldo Emerson and quoted him in my journal. "The only literature worth reading is transcendental or extraordinary." Emerson was heavily influenced by Eastern thought, especially the Bhagavad-gita.
In 1979, I was initiated into the Vaisnava tradition of India, and lived as a celibate monk in a farm community. In the early 90's, I moved to Pittsburgh, and got married in 2003. I am currently working on a project to help www.krishnapath.org, recording Srila Prabhupada's original pre 1978 books.
