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!
