BEING A WORKAWAY IN INDIA

 

An experience from Claudia Valdeón….

I still remember the face of my mum when I told her: “Mum, I’m going to India”, is impossible to forget the way she stared at me and said, “You are crazy if you think I’m going to allow you to go alone to that country.” And I replayed, “But mum, I’m not going alone.” And I smiled at her. Here is where my adventure began, or maybe we can go back a little bit more…

I was traveling through Europe using Workaway when I luckily landed in Bharati’s Ashram, in Sasbachwalden, after a really bad experience in another place. For me it was like a dream, amazing people, high quality food, my work was appreciated… And I established a deep connexion with Bharati, but especially with her little son, Gabriel Shiva.

I was hearing India’s call in my heart for a long time, but as a woman travelling alone, I didn’t know what to think about it, because people love to speak too much about this controversial territory, sometimes good, sometimes bad, and I was feeling not secure enough to make the big step.

So I was delighted of being close to Bharati to ask her all my India’s questions. She was more than an expert after living there many years, she really knew all the faces that India has. After more than one interrogation, she tough me the first lesson I needed to learn. “India is like a mirror, whatever you have inside, it will give you back.”

One of my last days in Sasbachwalden, Bharati asked me for a private talk. When we sit down on her place, she started, “I want to offer you something, but of course you can answer whatever you feel.” In this moment I was afraid, but she continued, “Do you want to come to India with us?”. First I tried to find the words inside my throat, but I couldn’t, and then I just said, “Yes, YES, YES, YEEEEEEEES.” We laughed together, and we spoke more about details.

After this powerful notice, the rest of the days in the Ashram went fast. When December arrived, I packed my stuff, I said Continue reading

The blessings of an activated Murti

Namasté,

I always get remarks and interesting questions from you about Murtis and Pujas, so I am glad to take the time to take a closer look at this mysterious topic.
A Murti is a spiritual statue, such as Shiva, Durga, or Hanuman, which you can worship on your altar. And the puja is the process of worship itself, in which the various spiritual energies and transcendental personalities offer various fragrant things. It is a spiritual ritual, which is widespread in India and is carried out daily.
Do you think a Murti is just a simple statue or is there more hiding behind it? If you buy a Murti somewhere, it is most likely not activated and just a shape made of wood, marble or various metal alloys. A beautiful spiritual form or statue of a great saint, but not yet much more. With certain mantras, energies and rituals, you can draw life into the Murti and Continue reading

Celebrate the Hanuman Chalisa on New Year´s Eve with us!

Namasté,

According to the principles of Hindu cosmology we are in the last of the four ages, in Kaliyuga.

Every 12 years, the energy changes on our planet – 21/12/2012 was the beginning of this extraordinary vibration change.

Therefore, the coming years will be very characteristic because we will undergo personal experiences and thus also spiritual experiences faster and more intense than usual. The result of the Hanuman Chalisa will be intensified, too.

Is your live also written on a palm leaf?

It is impossible to say anything appropriate about the spiritual experiences awaiting you on this journey because most of the experiences of the soul cannot be expressed in words. They are special gifts that move our inner self and lead us back to our real being.

Tiruvannamalai at the holy Mountain Arunachala – a magical place

Our journey begins in Bangalore, from where we will travel to Tiruvannamalai together. The small town of Tiruvannamalai is situated at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala, which is considered a manifestation of Lord Shiva. Sri Ramana Maharshi, a worldwide known master who is one of the most known wise people and representatives of the Advaita-Vedanta of the 20th century, has lived here until 1950. Ramana Maharshi taught self-examination by the question “Who am I”.

From the Shri Ramana Ashram a path leads up on the Arunachala where the two hermitages are situated in which the master spent many years. In town, we find the well-known Arunachaleshwara temple where Shiva – in form of the element fire – is worshipped.

This wonderful video offers a nice impression.
