Day 1 – Mamallapuram
January 24, 2010 • Spiritual Adventures
We started our 2010 South Indian Odyssey today with an orientation class this afternoon. The class was held outdoors under some shady trees by the beach and the resort was a perfect setting to begin our journey. Though some of us are still slightly jet lagged we are all happy to be here and eager to begin our spiritual adventure. Our group of 11 hail from the countries of Scotland, USA, Turkey and Australia.
After our orientation class we headed out on our first excursion – to see Arjuna’s penance, the famed ancient rock carvings in town and some other carvings as well in the vicinity. We also attended the last day of the yearly dance festival.
