Rained in

(viewed 1552 times)
Ankle deep water around the house, one tree down and a few leaning in an ominous way...! We didn't get the worst of it, the coast did.

Holy, in a temple, and mortal, on the pavement....

My favourite spot in Sri Ramana Ashram

(viewed 1338 times)
Ramanashramam is open to everyone, all day and evening. This is the samadhi (Ramana's grave) in the main hall. My favourite place is behind the samadhi. I go there nearly every day and circle the grave a few times before going for a walk. It's not out of religious practice, it just feels nice and quiet, something I enjoy.

Nandi Day

(viewed 669 times)
Every two weeks, Nandi is washed, dressed and decorated, and honored in a ceremony (pooja). The family in charge know us quite well and we're always invited to go and later eat blessed food.

The quarry

(viewed 715 times)
A lot of the work is done by hand, with hammers and chisels. They also use pneumatic drills, some kind of explosive, and trucks.
Our house is just behind the quarries. Sometimes they work at night too. Some of the quarries are full of water, it can be good for swimming.

Weekend in Chennai

I went to buy some photo paper to do pinhole photography. But no one stocks it anymore! Even my usual supplier. I bought some paints instead. And went to wonderful (and free) classical concerts on both nights.
