Namaste, I've been a practicing Hindu almost my entire. A part of the reason why I signed up for this forum is to educate myself again on Hinduism. Ever since high school and college, I haven't really kept up with Hinduism. I went to balvihar for about 17-18 years of my life. As I have gotten older, I'm trying to explore the philosophical and spiritual, historical aspects of Hinduism. I'm more interested in spiritual connection with God.
