Just being in India with all of the sounds of temple bells, wandering Sadhu's, and the chants/songs woven throughout the day's sounds are immersion factors in themselves.  The Gurudev out of town schedule is suiting me.

Early morning meditation
7:30 meditation at the Ramakrishna Temple
8:30 -12:00 service at Mother Teresa's
Evening meditation at the ashram

The splurge on the auto-rickshaw is delightful.  I recognize the texture of all the facets I pass by, but I am slightly removed without any work involved--a mini-magic carpet.

The conscious contact points to the Divine all share a sense of soothing peacefulness once my mind takes a seat.  Each location has specific sounds, rhythms, and nuances that flavor the Divine Soup. I will miss many of the direct markers that help one to stay intwined in the path to consciousness, but there will also be fewer outer distractions.
