I’ve been into spirituality since I was 18. Soon I became a member of the Theosophical Society (Adyar) where I immersed myself and fell in love with lodge work and their aims. These are the three objects: a brotherhood without distinction of race, creed and caste and research of all religion, philosophy and science.
I took both aspects very seriously and delved not only into Blavatsky, but also Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoga philosophy, Mystical Christianity, Jiddu Krishnamurti and more.
Eventually I even took my studies to Leiden University to study ‘world religions’. They include the history of all world religions, the philosophy of religion, sociology, anthropology, psychology and of course any specialist courses one feels like taking. I specialized mostly in India and Buddhism, with an interest in history, philosophy and sociological aspects.
Based on my studies I published ‘Essays on Karma‘ in 2014.
In 2011 I became a Buddhist formally. Contrary to what I’d thought as a theosophist, combining theosophy and Buddhism was not as self evident as it looked. More about Buddhism
