So I do not really know where to begin.. I have A growing interest right now in the hare Krishna movement, I grew up with not only an understanding of silent meditation but an active participation. I never had a real understanding of the Hindu gods other than the main, (Shiva,ganesha, hanuman was always my favorite) But its now that I'm coming to understand that these gods all represent things that are on the inside of ourselves, not an external entity in the sky. The idea of Krishna though does greatly interest me. Attraction seems to be the most real and pleasurable yet torturing of the human condition. Attraction to material things, women, acceptance & it also represents the struggle to get these things which often are not fought through to the end. But any way this is what I have been thinking about. I am reading a book that is called "the perfection of yoga" all about Krishna. I have some cool mala beads , & I will be attending my first yoga class next Tuesday which will be bikram and have started my silent meditations this morning. I feel like I will slowly go into chanting hare Krishna on my beads once I have gotten in the habit of meditating properly.
