Thread: Namaste from Scotland

  1. Namaste from Scotland

    Namaste

    I'm John, from Scotland. To cut a very long story short, my interest in the Hindu tradition began a couple of years back when I encountered the teachings of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Although Advaita Vedanta was my real concern, I began researching many of the Hindu references made by Nisargadatta in dialogues such as those found in "I Am That" and "Prior To Consciousness" and I feel like I am in the process of discovering a seemingly endless trove of treasures.

    My daily devotions are to Lakshmi, Sri Ganesh, Sri Dhanvantre, Gayatri and of course, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

    I read the Holy Vedas and The Gita every day and I find the mantras of Gayatri, Lakshmi, Ganesha, Dhanvantre are life-changing. I hope to learn a lot from my participation here and to make friends.

    Love and light to all.

    Vannakkam John.

    Welcome to HDF. I hope your stay here is fruitful. We have two things in common. I have the Scot in my genetics, and my RT initials are also JM. Hopefully we can find a few more too.

    Thank you, Eastern Mind. I am very much a "newbie" to the Hindu tradition and I want to learn, learn, learn! Your post here was fruitful for me because I hadn't encountered "Vanakkam" before....but now I've Googled it.

    Vannakkam: As always, I recommend a visit to a Hindu temple, because Hinduism is much more than philosophy. It will give you a feel. There are several around Edinburgh and Glasgow.

    Namaste John,

    Always nice to see another newcomer to the forums. There is so much to learn in the path of Sanatana Dharma! I wish you the very best in your spiritual journey.

    Om namah Shivaya

    Watch your words, they become actions.
    Watch your actions, they become habits.
    Watch your habits, they become your character.
    Watch your character, it becomes your destiny."

    ॐ गं गणपतये नमः
    Om Gam Ganapataye namah

    Namaste John.

    I have been trying to read the Vedas and I must say that I find it to be an extremely challenging task. Hope you find peace and knowledge in your quest.
