A Quick Summary of India...

A visit to India is an assault on the senses. It is a noisy, brash, garish, smelly destination. Yet simultaneously it is a place of great tranquility and spiritual wisdom. One can't attempt to understand it. One just has to take it all in and let it change one. - Quoted from the book The Kama Sutra of Business by Nury Vittachi

This statement I definitely agree! Here are some videos to show u the enormous assault on me! haha..

Scene from the train station at a very un-peak hour, like 11am in a suburb area...
Also, i have not shared my experience of being nearly squashed alive whilst trying to disembark from a train during peak hour yet!

My crazy SSY coursemates who were singing with full gusto the whole 3 hours from the ashram back to Mumbai!

Capoeira performance @ Bandra Beach by Aparna's (whom I couchsurfed with in Mumbai) group. Check out the crowd surrounding us!

Osho International Meditation Resort..

Firstly, the good news..I'm HIV negative! haha..surprise surprise, probably the only meditation centre in the world which has a HIV test as a pre-requsite for entry. Go google it if you wanna find out more. Needless to say, I was kinda curious how they would "break" the news to wannabe participants if they were INDEED HIV positive....hmmm...

Anyway, some usual of Osho International Meditation Resort

My most luxurious room in India!

The Pyramid shaped Osho Auditorium where we spent most of the time...US$25million!

My Security Pass

How do I look in Maroon? This is worn in the day time mainly...

Or is white better? And only for evening meetings please...

My amazing Welcome Morning group from all across the world!

Photo of the Year! (for me at least...)

Thanks Tara for a fantastic opportunity to have 3 days of teachings with His Holiness, The Dalai Lama...and this photo, priceless! (remember the MasterCard Ads?)
Notice my right hand on His Holiness' left shoulder? (ok..fingers just poking out) :P

Another Quote of the Day...
"Always recognize the dreamlike qualities of life and reduce attachments and aversions. Practice good-heartedness towards all beings. Be loving and compassionate, no matter what others do to you. What they will do will not matter so much when you see it as a dream. The trick is to have positive intention during the dream. This i the essential point. This is True Spirituality."
Quoted from the book - The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche

Your comments please? I've been living this quote as much as possible during this journey...and it RAWKS! :)
