Conversations with God. Really? Can we really talk with God?

"You've got to read this book!" A couple of friends insisted while I was staying at the Sivananda Ashram in Madurai. They were talking about Conversations with God, by Neal Donald Walsch. I had seen that book many times before but it never really called my attention. That title "Conversations with God," because of its religious connotation, was not very appealing to me.

Meeting with a Himalayan Yoga Master: Swami Veda Bharati

Swami Veda Bharati

Before arriving at the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, a Himalayan tradition ashram in Rishikesh, India, I wrote down all the questions that I wanted to ask Swami Veda Bharati, the founder of the ashram and disciple of Swami Rama. I'd heard stories of people forgetting all their questions when meeting a master like him so I put them on paper to make sure I wouldn't forget them.

The Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama Ashram (SRSG), Rishikesh

Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama Rishikesh

In my opinion, the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) is the best ashram for meditation that you can find in Rishikesh or even all over India. Throughout all my travels around India, and even after consulting with other seekers, I have not been able to find any other ashram that focuses on meditation like at SRSG.

How to stay connected with mobile internet while traveling in India

Updated Feb 2015 There is nothing like traveling all around India, visiting temples, practicing yoga and meditation while at the same time staying connected with my family and friends using the mobile internet on my iPhone (with Indian Sim Card). I can check my e-mails, Facebook, browse the web, book flights and trains and a lot more. Do you want to know how to do this with your own smartphone?

Photos from Delhi

And after a month wondering in the beaches of Goa it was time to get serious; next stop... Rishikesh! The land of the great Yogis. But on my way I had to make a one day stop in Delhi. Not so much time but I managed to visit a few places thanks to the advice of my Indian friend Samara, who hosted me at her place. Here are just a few photos that I would like to share.
