Beauty Everywhere

Okay….okay…..after all this is  India!

So things in the so-called “outer-world,” especially the “getting a working internet connection world” is unpredictable…..hence, no blog posts for a while. Now I will attempt to download a few photos from an afternoon stroll along the outer path that circles the Holy Silent Hill Arunachala.

Here we go….some scenes from around the Hill.

And a flirtatious turkey, did he think me and my friend were turkeys too? Well, perhaps of a sort.

In a small village a couple of goats huddle against the wall of a house.

One lady cooks idliis (steamed rice and dal buns) for sale on the street in front of her house and an old woman washes her clothes outside her front door.

A cloud swirls around the peak of Arunachala….reminding us that behind our mental covering is the Clear Light of Un-knowing.

    Lovely photos! What’s with the fancy sidewalk? I’ve seen this before in some of your pictures and don’t remember any sidewalks like that. It looks wonderful!

      The sidewalk was put in, I think completed last year. It starts on the quiet part of the road and goes all the way until Vellore Road. Very helpful for people walking the outer path to avoid vehicular traffic. Also has become a “sidewalk home” for sadhus and homeless.
