Indie 2011

Happily in Delhi

My journey started at beginning of Janury when I came to Delhi, on picture is my friend Deepak selling silver in his shop with his father. Next day I took plane to Chennai and reached Tiruvannamalai just at a beginning of a Pongal festival.

I started my first pradkshina arond Arunachala next day to worship great Shiva, God of gods.

The Pongal started, all doors are decorated with coloured paintngs from rice flour.

We visited the brahmin school in countryside next day. It was the cow day, celebration which is done for cows.


The ceremony was done by the teacher, students helped wit recitatind from Sama Veda.

Everything was nice decorated, cows was washed and decorated and everywhere were fruits and other goodies.

Sri Brahmam

Sri Brahmam visited Tiruvannamalai and I visited few his satsangas

Meditation hall

I spent a lot of time in the meditation hall in Sri Ramanasramam, where is sofa where Sri Ramana sat more than twenty years.

Big temple celebration

In front of the Big Tepmle is noisy celebration, which is visited also by Sri Arunachaleswara.

Night picture

Long exposure made such picture of pilgrims.


Arunachala is such nice scene.


Lotoses evoke the Bhagavad-Geeta verse 5.10. - One who acts by dedicating actions to Brahman and by renouncing attachment, he does not become polluted by sin, just as a lotus leaf is not by water.

Arunachala in haze

Nice composition of Arunachala in haze.
