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.

It is not advisable to habitually sit for meditation with no particular goal or direction, for we often end up walking in mental or subconscious circles.
