I'm not trying to debunk eastern spirituality because it's 'popular', it's just not in line with my own research or spiritual practices. For example, there are cultures out there that practice necromancy. That in itself is not congruent with eastern beliefs in reincarnation (how can you command a soul that's supposed to be reincarnated?).
You can peg me as whatever you like. I know myself, thanks. You can stick to your eastern spirituality if it works - really. I've practiced kundalini yoga myself and it was nothing but beneficial and transformative.
