Hi. I feel a union with all faiths. In my eyes, all faiths tie to the same religion and one God. How can I tie Indian philosophies to my Christian beliefs successfully? Is is true that in chanting the ancient mantras I can apply anything of myself to these chants or any aspcet of myself that I wish to better rather than the pictures of the deites? I recognize the pictures as beautiful art and awesome representations of God but they confuse me in giving praise and chanting. I think that I can do better without pictoral aids. I feel this is the right thing for me, but any opinions and stories are welcomed for sharing. I would love to hear about your experiences and ideas. Peace and Love, Ben.
