Individual during the month becoming adherent of an Indian religion 4 letters ?a??

I know everyone will have finished theirs already, but I'm stuck. Every week I get stuck - usually a little bit in the corner and as I don't get the telegraph on a Monday, I never find the answers so never get any better at the damn thing. Thanks

My first thought was MAYA, but JAIN fits the clue much better. Big Dave will be along soon to confirm it.

I agree that JAIN fits the clue much better.

As a (mildly) coincidental aside and nothing to do with the clue, I saw this 'definition' (?) in Wikipedia...

"Maya (Jainism), translated as "greed"; one of the 18 traditional undesirables in Jainism."

Spooky. It must be, then.

Hi - I'm here!

Yes it is JAIN.

For me, three clues spoiled this puzzle - this one, 20 down and 15 across.

As usual, there is help on the blog!

I'm working on a new web design, which is why I haven't been around much recently. Well, that and the fact that I have seen enough quizzes on here in the last few weeks to last me a lifetime!
