About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

Keepin' it together forever . . . sanAtana dharma

Though sanAtana dharma is clearly to me key to the whole mystery,


clues and cues and parts of the puzzle are extant in every land and o'er every sea and play through the array of faiths and paradigms,
 
sometimes quite cleverly deployed in subtle symbolic and oft ironic hints

 


Shiva Linga and Omphalus



proffered by those who weave the webs that hold the show together and make it entertaining . . .








and worthwhile.
