Holy Rivers of the world

Mauritius with its own ganges
What is it with the spirituality of all craters?

Once a year, on the 13th day of the dark half of the passage of the moon in the month of Maasi (February or March) you can join the thousands of Hindus who descend on Grand Bassin (Ganga Talao), one of Mauritius's two natural lakes and set in the crater of an extinct volcano, to celebrate the festival of Maha Shivaratri, Lord Shiva's Great Night. Legend decrees the lake is an offshoot of India's holy River Ganges which gives it immense sacred significance.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
