Happy Tamil New Year everyone. It’s the year 5114 according to the Tamil calendar. We are well into the future of futures.



I wanted to share with you a movie I watched recently called “Watching Water“. It was filmed and edited by my dear friend Jo Tyrrell. Jo, originally from South Africa, is a film maker, photographer and artist who now resides in the UK.

A brave endeavor in my mind for her first film, Jo did it all on her own. Countless days and weeks of filming, editing and who knows what later she’s produced an inspirational film that unveils what surfing means to surfers. Her will to see this through inspired many people along the way to step in and help her in different ways such as granting her interviews (she interviewed some top world champion surfers in this film), lending equipment to premiering the film at Quicksilver headquarters in California. Congratulations Jo. A job well done. Check out her website and do watch the film by clicking this link “Watching Water“.

On another note, Jo will be joining me on this upcoming spiritual adventure to help me document parts of the journey. We hope to have some footage available for you to see in the coming weeks so you can virtually experience one of our spiritual adventures.


We’ve been doing some work on our blog to improve it over the last couple of weeks and hence I have not been blogging. But I’ll resume blogging now that I am on the road again and our next spiritual adventure begins this Friday. You’ll see some changes in the blog in the coming weeks and we hope that it will add to a better experience for all of you who visit the site.


Wishing you good health and a spiritually rewarding year. Happy new year!
