My Spiritual Journey, India: Day 9

We travel to another Ashram located in Chandigarh, which is three hours away.
Yog Sadham Ashram rented the space for this event and the conditions are less then favorable–they’re awful!
There is a bad storm and we barely get any rest. The window shudders banged against the outside all night long. When I open my bedroom door to use the rest room, I’m stepping over devotees heads and bodies who are sleeping scattered all over the floor.
I go to use the rest room and it is worse than any outhouse I’ve ever seen. This is unacceptable to all of us. My Guruji Hersh calls her family members to drive us to a hotel. We move to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning. I don’t know how these devotees travel from town to town and sleep in these conditions. I do realize many of these people are living in poverty.
I’m beyond thrilled to be relocated in a clean hotel, with a soft pillow to lay my head down to sleep. I guess the Princess is rearing her head. We participated in the celebration, we just didn’t sleep in the rented building. In America, we have no idea how blessed we truly are.
This has been another life altering experience!
