I will be seeing the Beloved Indian Saint Amma/Ammachi this Summer in Northern Virginia. I have been recieveing her Darshan since I was pregant with Shanti in the Summer of 1996.
I recieved a special Mantra & took intiation from her in NYC x3 Summers ago.
Shanti's Baba has been an SRF = Self Realization Fellowship devotee since he was a teenager. I've enjoied attending SRF services in the Blessed honor of the sweet Avatar Paramahansa Yogananda.
I also studied with the 3HO yoga group & Yogi Bhajan since 1986. I recieved my spiritual name, "Guru Kaur Khalsa" , at Yogiji's feet on 07/11/88 in New Mexico the Summer of 1988.
I took a Mantra with TM = Transendental Meditation @ age 13 in the Summer of 1974.
My oldest daughter is named after Tara the Buddist Goddess of Compassion & Wisdom... & the Blessed Mother Mary of Jesus Christ :

The list of my Ecclectic Spiritual interests goes on & on!
ALL paths lead to ONE!

The picture you posted on my page is absolutely amazing---what amazing scenery you are witness to---and all of us are gifted to view these "snapshots" of your part of our world.
What beautiful music you have here! I so agree with you, music is the language of the soul which unites us to God!
Thank you for your gifts,
Hello Sourav, Thanks for stopping by... I am an appreciator of your country and culture. And my most revered spiritual teacher resides there also - S.N. Goenka. Yours is truly a land of enormous spiritual wealth. As a native American, I am always telling people, "I am not Indian. Indians are from India." Metta, Jeanne
I'm intrigued by the East Indian music, and it's brand of spirtuality. Some of my most profound musical influences in jazz have studied this music. If you have not already I would urge you to listen to:
1) John Coltrane's "Love Supreme"
2) Yusef Lateef's "Eastern Sounds"
Each are classic albums with heavy influence from your part of the world.
At a concert for Coltrane, I heard the "Sitar (?spelling)" instrument for the first time, as played by a famous Indian, I believe Ravi Shankar. Is this instrument in your photo the same?
I hope you are enjoying the site, thank you for adding me.
