Varanasi


Why can't India do a better job of preserving our cultural hotbeds?
Why do we take it for granted?
Varanasi is the holiest of holy cities of the world...
One of our friends got back from vacation and was complaining about the filth..
Why can't the steps into the ganges be preserved, pristine and pure?
Doesn't this filth take us away from the divinity?

Haridwar and Rishikesh are still well preserved..

Haven't been to Varanasi yet - but seemingly the zeal is missing.
Need to get back

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!
