The Start of My Spiritual Journey

radspMy spiritual journey began when my family I moved to Canada from England back in 2007. In England we had a lot of family and friends and in Canada we didn’t know anyone. With this difficult transition and missing many of my home comforts, I started looking more inwardly towards joy and peace.

Being born into a Hindu family I was familiar with many Hindu traditions but it wasn’t until recently that I began to understand that Hinduism isn’t a religion but actually a way of life. A way of life towards spiritual realization which is best described in the Vedas, which are ancient Hindu scriptures. Through meditation and learning about the Self, I discovered, and still am discovering, an inherent joy and higher Self that isn’t dependent on external situations or materialistic pursuits.

My journey continues and I am still learning more about these ancient scriptures and leading a life with meaning. I am currently reading The Bhagavad Gita, which is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and warrior prince Arjuna discussing the science of Self-realization, which is inspiring me by every word.

“When the yogi, like a tortoise withdrawing its head and limbs into its shell, is able to withdraw his energy from the objects of sense-perception, he becomes established in wisdom.”

~ The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 2, verse 58)
