Losing Our Way Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing. --------------------------------------------------------- Arundhati Roy (Indian author, advocate, activist)

S INDIA: Shantivanam Ashram; Trichy; Kumily; Amritapuri Ashram; Kollam; Varkala; Kottayam; Cochin

Probably the crown jewel of the Hindu temples we visited was Srirangam in Trichy. It has seven gopouram -- creating seven rings around the inner sanctum of the temple -- each ring representing an increasingly subtle level of consciousness. You can see the first three of the gopuram in this photo. Each layer also contains incredible shrines, all dedicated to Vishnu.
