This user has a special concern for topics relative to traditional cultures and spiritual traditions, which should be properly represented on the internet. She is new to WIki but looking to learn more how to bring this into her work.

Her focus is on Indian culture and Yoga from the ancient Vedic times to modern gurus like Sri Aurobindo and Paramahansa Yogananda. She travels frequently in India, particularly in South India, and finds a different opinion there than what one commonly finds in the West. She is a student of Sanskrit and would like to see more study of Sanskrit texts from a yogic perspective.

She is a supporter of Western Hindus, particularly the work of Hindu Acharya Vamadeva Shastri (David Frawley) and teachers like Ganapati Muni.

She hopes that Hinduism is better represented on Wiki as presently it seems to be the most under rated of the world's major religions on Wiki. She is happy that Wiki is giving more attention in this area and hopes to work more with its Hinduism project.
