We hired a scooter on the Sunday and made our way to Auroville, the international community created by The Mother inspired by the teachings ...
... that I have ever experienced in my life, it was so silent, that the silence was loud – crazy I know, but it’s true. Maybe that’s the point, the design specific reward, so that the contemplation within this chamber can be reached to the fullest with the absence of any noise whatsoever except the beating of your own heart. So with the silence screaming in my ears I opened my eyes and watched as dust particles sank down, through and across the beam of light, ...
... to wear. Almost as soon as we'd sat down to watch the ceremony, we were ushered upstairs to eat dinner (which was delicious). Apparently in India, it's not rude to eat and run so, sensing the rain, we made a swift exit. Just as we set off on our bikes, the heavens opened and the most outrageous storm we've ever seen began! When the road ceased to be visible, we took shelter in a plumbing shop and resorted to abandoning the bikes and getting a ...
