were you brought up in your faith or did you seek it out on your own?
In effort to assuage doubts in my Christian faith, I began reading the bible and doing serious research. In do so, I inadvertently put myself on the path that eventually led to finding my faith. I have practiced yoga for years, and because of that I began reading about both Hinduism and Buddhism to learn about yoga in its spiritual aspects. I related to both faiths/philosophies, but when I read about Vedanta, I knew I'd found my path. It is everything I've inherently believed about spirituality, inter-connectedness, the universe, and the divine.

Both. In my twenties I studied a lot of different religious philosophies and what I found is that most are very similar at their core. I follow my religion because I believe in love, charity, empathy and mercy. I think these qualities is what we is what we should be striving for in ourselves. I also believe in the communion of saints. I believe we are all still connected to one another after death. I believe when we die we are souls are still alive.
