Thank you again for all the useful information that was given to me in my previous post. I read all of them carefully and have been reading daily. This of course leads to more questions. I saw a video and pictures of worship services and all the people sit crosslegged on the floor. I have had 5 knee reconstructions and I am about as flexable as a 2X4. I am already going to stick out and this would further complicate things. I don't want them to think I am being disrespectful, any suggestions?
Through my journeys I have acquired a few tattoos, what does the community think about this?
Is there anyone out there that I could correspond with that would be a mentor to me?
What is a proper gretting? Remember I want to seem genuine and not like I am on a research project.
Weird question but it has been bothering me. How should I pray? Can I just speak with Lord Ganesha from my heart or is there a set way to pray? How do you end a prayer?
When I attend a worship service, will it be in English or a mixture of languages?
I am really nervous to meet other Hindu's and what they will think of the Western white guy. It's not going to be an easy journey since so much of this unknown to me.
Thank you in advance!
