The Magic of India: Incredible Kerala Hindu Temple Festival

India is such and amazing country. During my second night at Arsha Yoga Gayathri, an ashram right next to a paradise beach not so far away from Fort Cochin, Harilal and Meera (the owners of the ashram) invited all the guests staying at the ashram to the town nearby, so we could experience an incredible Kerala Hindu Temple Festival.

Arsha Yoga: a Small Yoga Ashram in Kerala, Near Fort Kochi

Arsha Yoga Ashram in Kerala Near Kochi

Arsha Yoga Gayathri is small and peaceful yoga ashram in Kerala, right next to a paradise beach! It is located about two hours drive from Fort Kochi (65km), or one hour and half (60 km) from Cochin International Airport. It is ideal for a personal retreat, but you gotta follow the strict routine.

"You have got to visit Sajee in Fort Cochin and practice yoga with him", my friend Marshall from Brazil had insisted again and again. Since about a year and half ago he mentioned me many times what a great Yoga teacher Sajee is. Finally, after an unexpected visit to a dear friend at Swami Dayananda Ashram in Coimbatore I was able to follow my friend's advice and I traveled a bit more south to search for Sajee's yoga studio and join his yoga class in Cochin.

Visiting a friend at Swami Dayananda Ashram in Coimbatore

Last February I finally had the opportunity to visit my dear friend Elouise at Swami Dayananda Ashram in Coimbatore (Arsha Vidya Gurukulam) where she is following the gurukulam program, a three years Vedanta course. Thanks to her I had an amazing time during this trip, she took very good care of me and made me feel very welcome. For about a year and half we had tried to arrange a get together but we never really managed to do it although we both had been in India all that time.
