Re: Is this the end?

Hi global, how are you? Nice to meet you. I am also new to this forum. Checking it out. INMO, these people should be dealt with in a serious manner. It could be that I am just a bit of an old hippy, but - while i can understand what you said - i feel like this is the seed of so many problems. Everyo...

Re: Chai anyone?

I don't know if you have been in Madhuban recently but the last few years there has been a chai stand where Bholi Dadi used to sleep, between the toli kitchen and the middle kitchen (also known in the old days as the 'sick kitchen'), where foreigners often used to go looking for gentle solutions to ...

Re: Chai anyone?

hi bansy and tom and others too,

thanks for your welcome. Yes - the milk kitchen indeed. Famous for hand drawn, fully drishtied, concoctions of happiness. But I did not know you could get a chai after 10pm!

Make that a double! :D

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

hello ex-lady. the film did not seem to promote toaism or any particular religion from what i could tell. i liked it anyway. as far as a world tour, i do not think they were doing that. maybe, i am not sure but they did not say they were going to do that. anyway, i did like the scenic beauty and the...

Chai anyone?

Hello to everyone. Pilatus asked me to introduce myself (thanks pilatus). I've been doing Raja Yoga for a million years (okay I am exaggerating). but I remember the days when it was all about Raja Yoga and you hardly ever heard anyone say 'brahma kumaris'. I still think of myself as a raja yogi and ...

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Re: The Tao of the Traveller

Hello :| just registered. I did not read everything but this thread looked a bit spicey from just scrolling down (just like any good cup of chai)! Definitely more spicey than the film which was quite gentle and heartwarming. I just saw it. It was so good actually. Really told a good story that's rel...
