Where I stayed
Park Guest House, Sri Aurobindo Ashram
I stayed in a guest house affiliated with the Ashram...i had a huge room, a balcony overlooking a grand garden of "positive vibrations" on the grounds and then the ocean. It couldnt get any more peaceful. It's no wonder i stayed a week, afterall i havent stayed more than 3 nights anywhere after more than a month so it all worked oot very well.
I went to the ashram a few nights to take part in the collective meditation which i have never done before amidst a group. It was lovely. I sat and watched as all the peeps came into the courtyard for the collective meditation (from the chaotic streets only a few blocks away),
feelng the calmness...
Then i stumbled upon this busy dining hall and wondered what it was, and found oot it too was affiliated with the ashram (as are many things in town). So the next day i got a ticket from my guesthouse (i love how they dont tell you all this but you have to figure it oot for yourself), for 20 rupees (50 cents) and joined the dining hall for lunch and dinner at the small time allotments. I sat in silence as you must eating my rice, some yellow curry thing with no spice (yay), bread and yogourt. i was very happy so have stumbled upon this. I was very happy with what the Ashram had given me in many ways...
