… about ten days of retreat, bound by the spell of India.
So many contrasts…intense heat and the cold of dawn at the top of the mountain. Total peace and the horn shattering noise and confusion. Vivid colour and the white sheet to rest on. The smell of dirt and incense and pollution and the fragrance of jasmine and spices. Outer chaos, inner calm. Chanting and flowing and the song of inner awareness, challenged by the chatter of the busy modern mind. 10 days like 10 weeks in the expansion of experience.
