Hey Peter, to live with another is tough, and it isn't helped by being overly exertive in your belief system. Sure, you want your girlfriend to accept your buddhist beliefs, but forceing them on her will only cause heart ach, just let your actions reflect your beliefs. Remeber, interacting with others makes up the most of our lives, and ditching her for india, as much goodness it may bring, will bring badness for her and yourself. Besides, location is less a part of your path then she is. To pursue your belifes at her expense is counter productive, intergrate her into your practice of generosity, patience, love and your path. Sigh... I wish I had a girl friend:) Anyway, I'm tiered and my broken mind is apparent in this post, I think, so good night and Metta.
