Arriving in Igatpuri, Vipassana Meditation Center:

INDIA | Monday, 23 March 2009 | Views [11615] | Comments [42]

Anticipating the 10 day silence.

This place reminds me of the temple of the 10.000 Buddhas  ( did you know that the same facilities for this Buddhist College near Ukiah was originally used for a mental hospital?) where I ride my yearly Buddhist Bicycle Pilgrimage.

One of the first people I met upon arrival, was a lunatic Russian, very masculine  female from Moskau, who didn’t seem to be able to shut up ( ok, she just came out of the 10 day silence – but how did she do it?) – and “hit” just about on anybody.

Her shaved head, her slouchy walk and her careless wardrobe really started to make me wonder how in the world did I get myself into this situation?

Having said that, I also like to say that my curiosity is driving me forward and now I am still able to write before the course of silence starts in a few hours, I have enjoyed  a good dinner, a good night sleep ( on a very hard , prison like bed) in my own little cell, a good breakfast and a beautiful garden.
