Where Do I Begin?

Posted on January 24, 2007

In starting this weblog, my goal was to write down my thoughts regarding Eastern philosophy so it may benefit myself and others. But increasingly, I have come to realize a very big problem that was not so apparent before I started this endeavor:

Where and how do I begin to talk about something so vast, profound and endless as Hindu philosophy? Just as importantly, where do I stop?

One thought leads to another, and everything is connected, so even before I try writing about one topic, say, the Vedas, or the sound “Om”, I get overwhelmed by the amount of knowledge that is available about them. Before I start to tell a story, I see that the story will run into many, many pages.

I have a many a story to tell, but each of the stories runs into hundreds of words, and I am not sure any of the people who visit this weblog will have the patience to read something that long!

So I ask for your help, visitor – do you have any thoughts as to what I can do to overcome my problem? What should I write about? Answering readers’ questions(even if I have to do some research to find the answers) seems much easier than writing about boundless topics!

    Are the Hindus really not monotheistic since they believe in Brahmin (spelling?)

    What is the best translation available of the Bhagavad Gita in English? Which chapters are the most important?
