Less than 3 weeks on my 3rd trip to Mysore, Saturday – hence day off from asana practise – and the chance to get with a small bunch of other KPJAYI students to Somnathpur to visit the Kesava temple.
I didn’t have a clue while getting there that I would get the answer to a question I had never even formulated explicitly to myself:
“what brings me back to India again and again?”
Overall, this is my 4th trip to India in 1.5 years for a total of 6months. Maybe some of you know that feeling of being in your country and have a clear perception that, out there, there is a place calling you… to me, that place is India.
Thou I had never looked at it like that till last Saturday…
Just a few minutes walking through the Temple, staring at the magic of the carved walls, trying to reproduce as many of them as possible with my camera before starting feeling such a strong energy working to bring me more and more inward, deeper and deeper with the going of time. And than the revelation: this is exactly what is keeping me coming back to India!
Is it spirituality?
Is it beauty?
Is it meditation?
Is it really important to give it a name?
