Strangers to Inseparable Friends in 2-Weeks

17 travellers gathered exactly 2-weeks ago from 3-nations and in one spiritual adventure in the Himalayas have built inseparable friendships. Themed a night of "curry, champagne and catwalk", our group honoured and celebrated friendships born of a spiritual adventure.

My guru, Gurudeva Subramuniyaswami, always encouraged everyone to dress well. When we dress well, we feel good. So, tonight we put his advice into motion. The ladies from our group wrapped themselves in the saris they meticulously chose for themselves and the men did well for themselves. Tonight we also bid farewell to Anna who has assisted me along this spiritual adventure. We thank her for her hard work, quiet nature and getting things done behind the scenes.

Our second last night on this Odyssey, the photos below will speak for themselves of the friendships, love and spiritual companionships that were created in what has been an ineffable inner and outer adventure for each of us.

We usually honor a person in the traditional way by giving them a shawl but since Anna has been living in India for a while I felt a hoodie from New York City would serve her better in cold Darjeeling.

The ladies are requested to "strike a pose" and they willingly oblige. To quote Brittan "Time to put a sari on: One and a half hours. Time to take a sari off: 33 seconds. Time in between: Priceless."
