Allow me to update you on my exotic and enlightening travels in India! I was last in Goa (read my earlier post here), where I stayed for several weeks enjoying the beautiful seaside and studying Vedic Astrology with a well-known Hindu spiritual expert. Now I have decided to move further up north to the city of Rishikesh in order to escape from the heat and humidity that this time of year brings to Goa.
After a long journey, we’re finally settled in Rishikesh – the holy city of yoga! It’s crrrazy here, a lot like Varanasi, which we visited last year. They’re both very important Hindu pilgrimage places so there’s lots of ashrams, or holy men (and fake holy men – but I learnt my lesson with them last year!) and the magnificent River Ganges – which I swam in yesterday (it’s very clean up here in the mountains, as opposed to the famous murky waters of Varanasi) – it’s meant to be spiritual and cleansing and it was certainly very refreshing so I might try and make a habit of it!
We stayed for the weekend in the thick of it, but I very quickly got tired of the constant noise and commotion! So today we’ve relocated up away from it all in a lovely little leafy residential area which is wayyy quieter and more peaceful!
I’ve included you a couple of pictures of Rishikesh and two of the famous Beatles Ashram which we visited at the weekend – it’s INCREDIBLE! Built in an ancient/futuristic hybrid style in the 60s, the Beatles lived there for a month, and also wrote some of their most famous songs there. It’s all abandoned now, and covered in incredible graffiti – definitely well worth a Google if you don’t know it!
Much love, my dear stargazers! And don’t forget to read my weekly horoscopes for Psychic Future here!
