Didn't you already start a thread about your love for this Opening already? :) Be that as it may I will share my thoughts on it as I  too was attracted to this Opening many years ago, but later lost my enthusiasm for the line. White can pose problems for Black in at least two ways, provided he knows what he is doing:

Way number (1) The Positional Approach:  1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 Bg4 5.h3 Bh5 6.g4 Bg6 7.Qe2! e6 8.h4! h5 9.g5 Nfd7 10.Bh3 With a pleasant advantage for white.

Way number (2) The Sharper Approach: 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6 4.f4! Qa5 5.Bd3 e5 6.Nf3 Bg4 7.Be3 Nbd7 8.0-0 Be7 9.h3 Bxf3 10.Qxf3 0-0 11.Ne2 With a clear advantage.

I don't claim that the above two lines are the refutation of the Pribyl Indian (the other name for the defence), but they were unpleasant enough for me to abandon the defence as a mainline weapon to one best used occasionally in Rapid and Blitz as a surprise weapon.

Thank you Kevin for a great answer! 
Myself a few days ago I asked to my GM friend, what is the best against this system, he said the f4 with Bd3!
