I was delighted to be honoured by my hosts on my birthday by being dressed in a Sari, sung happy birthday, and fed cake by all of the sisters-in-law.
Stretching my limits way past bedtime, I was out on the street dancing with these wonderful women as we celebrated Saraswati. I ducked out early and rode sideways on the back of a motorcycle home because I was wearing a sari. A very memorable evening.
Every day here is a gift. I thought I was coming here to move into solitude, reflection, and meditation. It seems as though the universe has other plans for me. Really experiencing Bhakti – the essence of love through human connection.
