While food was a big part of my trip there was another part to my trip which was less gluttonous. If you have ever read Elizabeth Gilbert’s EatPrayLove, you know how important meditation is in India. I wish I could be as eloquent as Elizabeth was with her journey, but the truth is I am not a writer. However I will share with you that before I left for my trip I was not in a good place mentally or spiritually in my life. One of the main reasons for me going was to find some peace in my life. Sometimes people look at you and think what do you have to complain about, but life is not simple as that.
Many people go to India sometimes just to meditate in many of the ashrams that India is home to. I am going to put a warning for anyone who wants to do this before I proceed. There are many frauds when it comes to guru’s and ashrams, and you have to be careful. My advice is not to go to an ashram or guru straightaway, but to go to temples and satsangs in a major city. Once you are comfortable enough in India, you can then proceed to a higher spiritual level and outside of the city.
