While i agree that parhaps he should "study" more, i disagree with your emphasis on India and nepal as if theyre the only holders of spiritual beliefs on earth.
Also, i think hes approaching the subject as a spiritually awakened believer in G-d and a belief in a purpose in life and he doesnt need to earn respect from indian gurus who frankly sound a bit pretentious if they wont give their opinion to a documentary that can help many spiritual seekers.
The idea behind him doing this to me sounds like a desire to consolidate the different views - buddhist, hindu, Taoist, New Age, Christian/Gnostic, Muslim/Sufi, Jew/Kabbalist to uncover the underlying similarities and passions between these various approaches.
Unfortunately, I thought the Poster had a grand journey planned but the schedule is for a month. It'll take him a month just to get out of the airport (ha ah just joking) but I bet he's not the first one like him that they've seen over there. But that's not the point. I merely encouraged him to consider the full adventure, Cast his Fate to the Winds, and discover the God's.
you're right it's not... and I apologize. I thought he might have a subconscious desire for other directions.
Sounds like a great vacation. He wanted advice and I advised him to live the life, and then to tell about it.
A horse can be taken to water but can't be forced to drink. I hadn't anticipated all the objections to not drinking.
Anyway, India is a great place for a serious True Seeker to be tested by Fire.
