A couple of months ago, I received an email from one Bob H. S. The subject line called out — "Problem!", and I opened it immediately. Bob's problem related to the difficulty in feeling like an unwelcome outsider to the Hindu world, despite trying hard to come into the folds of Hinduism. His letter moved me so much that I want to pass on the rest of it to you:

Link of part 4 is broken for me, takes me to an unrelated article.

Part 5 is fine.

Yes, I have the same problem, but of what is viewable, it gives a nice reassurance to western Hindus. David Frawley is definitely a great role model for western converts and for born Hindus alike.

Greetings,
I know this is kind of off point from Sahasranama's post but kind of not. Certainly not knowing Mr. Frawley, he still has been influential in my following this path and I am grateful to him. If anyone may be interested, his free eBook, "How I became Hindu" can be found below:

Peace,
