Ever since the Beatles visited India and cozied up to the Yogi Maharishi Mahesh the western mind gobbled up the Mystical East. With the Paramahansa Yogananda moving to the West the circle was complete. Osho and others just tagged along. Karma reincarnation were accepted ideas now, as well as meditation and Yoga. I happen to believe in Chakras, along with the whole kit and caboodle. Tell me what you believe yourself. Books you read that were trans formative. I for one LOVE the autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda.
