Why Did Gurudeva Choose Hinduism?

A cyber-devotee in El Paso, Texas, asks how it is that Gurudeva came to pursue Hinduism rather than another religion. Gurudeva tells briefly about his path of first having realizations, then finding confirmation of his realizations in religion and philosophy. Hinduism alone holds all the confirmations of Gurudeva's deepest personal experiences.

Be free from the past; abide in the present; detach yourself from the future; and live in the eternal now. Evil has no source, unless the source of evil's seeming be ignorance itself.
—Gurudeva
