Once I inquired a lady about possibilities of tourist activities in Kerala, she was a friend of friend and been in touch through facebook. Her response was – “There are more yoga schools than the coconut trees.” My first impression of Rishikesh was similar, every other hotel is yoga centre. Gradually I realized that most foreign faces and many Indian tourists in Rishikesh are involved in yoga in one way or the other. Recently, I did one week yoga retreat in Vishwa Shanti Yoga School, I don’t have words to explain but I booked a seat for yoga teacher training in September. Those childhood inclination towards God and the feeling that we should be fully devoted to the almighty still exists somewhere, they say this is Bhakti Yoga. At the same time, I have been working continuously for 13 years now and what I have been today is the result of my tireless effort to make some difference, they call it Karma Yoga. Let me now dive into the sea of Yoga and meditation and let it find what path I should follow.
