I like Hinduism because it says that there are chakras in the body, a literal piece of the divine within each of us. I like the concept of kundalini awakening, which is like spiritual transformation and renewal.

I don't personally get much traction out of meditation, though I'm open to it and have tried it. Partly because I'm not a broadly anxious person and have a pretty disciplined mind to begin with. But I respect the basic teachings just the same. Besides, little known fact -- lay meditation has not been a focus of Buddhism until the past century or so anyway.
I know this is an old post - but I couldn’t agree more.
