I grew up in the west in a christian-dominated culture. I have listened to stories about Jesus since I was a child and have always respected his message of love and forgiveness. As I struggled to find a divine inspiration despite my lack of history with the Mahabharata and Ramayana it occurred to me that I could pick any higher power or elevated being or deva or sadhu. Why don't I just pick Jesus?
I am a believer of the Sanatana dharma. My thoughts and daily practice are those of a vedantist. I engage in daily meditation and strive to follow the disciplines of the sreya. Jesus would be more of a murti to me or object of my sadhana. I know this is not unprecedented as Sri Ramakrishna followed in Sanatana, Christian, and Muslim footsteps all 3.
Any thoughts? I dont want to offend anyone either way but I find that his message certainly has a place within my vedic beliefs. Any advice or path you could show me would be well appreciated. namaskar.
