I am a philosopher, artist and spiritual seeker. I have been involved in Indian and Eastern spirituality and philosophy all my life. I am not a member of any religious institution nor do I consider myself a follower of any particular doctrine or faith. I am very close to Vaishnavism for its emphasis on bhakti (love). But I see many of the legends as myths or allegories more than actual real stories. I see God as elusive in word and image.
