India Travels

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, so I want to get you caught up on the 2019 trip to Southern India with Roaming Buddha’s Rimmi Singh and myself. I took over 300 photos, and it is difficult to choose which ones to show here, but below are some highlights from the last trip.

Our group at Arjuna’s Penance on the Bay of Bengal at Mahabalipuram
Arunachalam – the sacred mountain where Ramana Maharishi reached enlightenment
Lakshmi giving a blessing to one of our travelers in Pondicherry. She’s good luck!
Ready to meet Nataraja in Chidambaram!
Our group of travelers standing together in front of relief sculpture of the Pandava brothers at Mahabalipuram
Kali Temple in Chidambaram. Kali is often seen with blood dripping from her mouth. We got it on our feet. Really though, it’s kum kum (koom-koom) powder and it is auspicious.
The hotel pool in Thanjavur. So refreshing, and yes, that is an outdoor bed on the far right.
Yes, we do practice yoga during our travels too. How do you think we keep our energy level up so high? 😉
Birthday celebration for one of our travelers!
Implements from our homa ceremony (fire ritual) for auspiciousness.
Everyone needs their very own garlic truck. No vampires here.
Children from the school at a tea plantation in the Periyar mountain area. This is the second time we’ve visited their school. We brought them backpacks, umbrellas, and ice cream.
Fishermen in Kerala. Love the colorful boat.
Final day before our flight home. This is at the Taj in Kochin; two of our travelers enjoy the infinity pool.

Next year we will visit northern India once again. Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Rishikesh and Haridwar. Join us!
