Why a Hindu Priest Left the Religion to Follow Christ
“I was so desperate to search for God that at the age of 19, I flew to India and trained to become a Hindu priest. In my first month of training, I was in the temple upstairs praying, worshipping. At that moment, I had this very silent voice in my left ear say, “Have you made the right choice?” My goodness, what have I done? In this Hindu religion that I was with, we firmly believed that the guru is God. When he speaks, God is speaking. So to be chosen to be one of His favorite priests is like the most incredible dream coming true.” – Rahil Patel, a Hindu priest
I finally got off this train that I was on for 20 years. I was done with my search for God. And I parked the whole idea of religion because I had no answers. Then feeling that I’ve wasted my life with Hinduism, I forgot about my secret encounters with Christ. I was done. So I flew back to London. Three weeks later, I was walking to South Kensington Station. I had a prompting, and my head turned, and I saw this church down this very quiet road. And as I approached the church, I saw these beautiful red doors. It was a Sunday morning. And these two people were welcoming people to come in. And soon as I walked through the doors, the presence of God just fell on me. I felt this incredible peace. And this very silent whisper again in my left ear said, “You’re home.”
Jesus met me where I was. It’s not a religion. God showed me this is a relationship now.
