{December 24, 2008}   religion and culture

i guess those are the two big words most used in India 🙂

for me each one of those words are interesting and fascinating. they make up ones identity. fortunately i have friends from  a lot of diverse back grounds. each of them have taught me something very unique.I guess thats the biggest advantage of being in India you get meet different thoughts,different practices,different views.we all need to learn to take the best of things rather than commenting on bad practices we must carefully abandon them but build the best practices.

every religion has the best it is for you to realise  that

one can find as much peace in st.philomenas of mysore as much as they can find in chamundi betta to me both these places have been temples of peace and tranquility

one of my best remembered times are of the silent prayers i have offered at st.philomenas i do not know  the right way to pray in a church never less lighting the candle and sitting there has filled my heart with a strange kind of peace 🙂

stphilomenas

like wise  betta is one of those places i visit when i need to do some soul searching or when i feel very happy.climbing the steps or just driving there and sitting there for a few mins has given me dreams and hopes and lot of  strength.
