Advaita Vedanta

More Depak on Hinduism. I met a young Brahaman guy here who was in training to be a priest and just couldn't accept what he was being taught.  He was thinking of going to Myanmar to a monastery. I told him that Myanmar bikhu come here to Bali to lead meditation retreats and that I think there's still one living here but that also he shouldn't reject Hinduism just because of what he's known of it. Talked to him about Advaita Vedanta and meeting Depak. I mentioned Adi Shankara who lived in India 1300 years ago and is a founder of Advaita Vedanta.  Depak told me to also tell him about Isha  and Chinmaya. - DC
