While in India for five weeks earlier this year, Advocate reporter Jennifer Preyss had the opportunity to experience the ripe, exotic Eastern traditions of the southern state of Kerala.
A country that boasts ancient religious plurality, 1,000-year-old architecture and a southern coastline of beaches deemed by National Geographic as some of the most beautiful in the world, India remains today a fusion of progressive modernity and primitive tradition.
In this four-part series, "The Land of the Gods," Preyss examines enlightenment in India, Christianity's relationship with yoga, early and secondary education in India and the limited presence of Christianity in a predominantly Hindu country.
