An Ode to Solitude
Posted: 9th of December, 2007 - 7:25
With one and half months with Anonymous Das Babaji, I have chosen to return to my precious solitude. The period has indeed left me with many a precious lesson, even if probably not the lessons the teacher intended me to part with. I will not write in detail on what led me to pack my bags and move on in fear of effecting Vaisnava-aparadha, whether by me or by anyone in the blog audience. Suffice it to say that the psychological gap between the two cultures can be immense, and concepts of honesty, acceptable conduct and so forth can be like day and night.

The day before yesterday I moved to a small kutir upstairs at Narottami Mandir, to the solitude I so badly needed. I am now moving out for a couple of days for parikrama of Varshana and Nandagram, and will also be seeking the counsel of Sri Vinod Bihari Das Babaji (photo posted on the front page) on certain pending matters concerning myself and the aforementioned mahatma. There are more reflections to be written on this, but they will have to wait for a better time.
