Just came back from India today morning, after what I would say, a trip of rejuvenation.
What else will I call a trip of biking through the Nilgiris, walking through silent valleys and streams, visiting some of the tallest peaks, having meals at places unthreaded by the human kind?
Apart from the planned visit to the Nilgiris, there was quite an accidental visit to a place which I would definitely visit again and again. This was situated in the foothill of Velliangiris at Kovai - Isha Yoga Foundation.
The first thing that really amazed me, upon stepping into the Isha lands was the architecture. I later heard that the founder of Isha, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev was into building and architecture himself, amongst some other passions of his such as trekking, biking, writing and so on.
A trip to Isha Foundation, admist the peace of the Velliangiri mountains is something everyone should be doing before the end of their life. The 'Dhyanalinga', the 'Theerthakunda' and such will just be names, until you see and get amazed by one of the largest Lingas in the world sheltered by a dome which emplifies every sound made inside and a submerged mercury linga, solidified at room temperature.
The Isha Yoga Foundation to me, spells tranquility, beauty and peace, and I chose to bring with myself part of the temple, a copper serpent ring - serpents decorate the temple interiors at every possible opportunity they get. For me now, it's gonna be a continuing journey into discovering what nature withholds for me.
