I have been involved in several forms of the Sanatana Dharma and most other major and many minor religions over the years. I was particularly attracted to Gaudiya Vaisnavism and spent years within that tradition, which is the main subject of this section of AllFaith.com. I've received initiations into several other Hindu schools as well. My main initiate names are Jagannatha dasa and Jagannatha Prakasa (as well as Gangadhar within the Siddha tradition).
Today, after many years of study, research and practice, my path lies with Derech HaShem, the Way of G-d presented in the Torah. I still hold the Sanatana Dharma in great respect and am eternally indebted to my teachers there. The content of this section of AllFaith.com should therefore be considered archival and not indicative of my current beliefs.
All of the material from my SriJagannatha.com web domain has been moved to here.
