India Experience by Shukla'


Arriving in India is a ?clashing? experience for everyone, and also for me that I went alone. It seems that everything escape to your control and also everything is different from the way you imagine and from the way in which you could face it: it's difficult find a decent room to stay, take a taxi, order something and be sure that you will receive what you have ordered (without onion, garlic, and other tamasic food). Furthermore the Indians are so quite, they move the head as we do to in Europe say no, instead they want say yes, and your patience get lost. But is you meet a dada, a group of margiis clashed as you, and choose to take the same way, everything change. You can live India not for the difficulties of the practical things (because dada worries about it), but for the most beautiful, spiritual, strange aspects, with a soul levity that permits you to appreciate also the very frequent misventures and disadvantages. You can share with other brothers and sisters your same fears and home sicknesses, feel you at home because you are with people who travel trough the same way and to the same goal. At the beginning I was uneasy in a foreign land, very foreign as India is, enclosed by unknown people and compelled to communicate with a language that I don't speak very well?but after I have raise up nice relationship, united in the Baba's guide encircled by an upsetting world. Which better company can be to visit and live all the baba's places? With the acharyas who tell you their experiences side by side to baba's body, just there in the baba's house, His jagrti, in His town? So many reminiscences ? I want to tell you some: in Patna with Dada Chandranath, it has been a extraordinary event, which has changed me the rest of the journey, I have carried with me his clarity which looked at me inside and also his words so deep that seem direct just to you in that precise moment, just the words you need and which move you so much. Ananda Nagar, Ananda Nagar is His place and nothing more can be told, you have just to live it in the crowd colored of the retreat days, that you can never see so much people, and there's not even a place where to si sit for meditation; in the peace and the silence to enjoy all the tantra pita there are in loneliness and thoughtfulness. Furthermore Jamalpur, Calcutta, where everything tastes His presence and brings you near, in His hearth. I feel that the words cannot be enough, cannot represent the incredible experience so as I have lived and so it's still with me. India is beyond of the words, as everyone says, but until you not go there you cannot know. And the India tour is truly the best way to enjoy it fully without remain too much shocked.
