What a remarkable country to practice stillness. I came here 8 years ago looking for answers to the basic oneness of human nature, life, and the possibility of inner peace. Significant answers have been answered, but the practice is in daily life. The irony of India is that it is not still or quiet. One learns to focus inwardly under all conditions. Walking in nature can be relatively still and quiet, but not in an ashram. The ashram gives one a wonderful setting for practicing. learning, and exploring inward conditions.
