Finals Days in India
In the previous chapter, I was in Rishikesh for the Kumbh Mela and yoga studies. The plan was to stay there and spend the last week in Bangalore and Mysore to see friends. I believe there was much “germs” in the air in Rishikesh. For about four days, I did not sleep well during the night because there was no power. I can not open the door while sleeping because of monkeys and the window ventilation was not adequate. Every time power goes out, I w...

Pondicherry and Danvangere
22 November, Saturday Greetings, y’all. Between studies and socializing, the week behind was very much full. Guru and I went to Puducherry for a day so he can discuss our school’s participation in the International Yoga Festival in January. He has about 100 participating students for the yogasana competition. I will be part of the workshop. We took the bus at night, arrived early morning, worked, then took the bus that same night, arrived in B...

The first night was an absolute blessing as my slumb...

What secret does it keep the mighty banyan tree. Where is the vast enchantment to see. Great stretches of bro...

Settling Down
Thursday, 6 November The jet lag is easing up. I now get up at 4:00 am instead of 1:00 am. T, I could not heed your advice on the jet lag cure. I did not have time to view the clip before leaving thinking that I would have easy access to internet when I arrive here. (There is that ASSuming word again!) It spells trouble, every time! The jet lag is not just rough on my body but also on my mind. I wake up feeling hazy and my mind is not as lucid...
