Welcome to our wonderful network, Sukadev! Pls join my circle of friends. It's also great to know you're a fellow Yogi, I'm a yogi-mystic here and I've handled hundreds of aspirants (I synthesized libertosophy as a wisdom tradition for freethinker-libertarians, and am into agni yoga + universal mysticism). You may also find my writes interesting for reviews. May you continue to succeed in your missions.
