My Spiritual Journey to India

Hello Lovely Souls, 

 

Many of you may have visited India and must have come back with “good things about India OR “ bad things about India” like any visitor would to any new country.

 

But, being a native of India, I LOVE all the goods and bass and going back home once a year to see my aging parents, my siblings and families and cherish the memories and special moments forever.... 

Many know of me as a spiritual being, and it goes unnoticed every time I come back from India, I have stories of beautiful experiences I had while visiting temples, ashrams and other religious institutions of all kind. Furthermore, I bring back inspiration that I then incorporate into my jewelry line in future designs. It’s all a heartfelt cycle for me. 

 

This recent trip back home took me to another level of self satisfaction and self content for I feel as if I discovered a “new surreal side” of me: being at peace, being ok with what life has in store for me and accepting it with open arms, with no questions asked.

 

Am I happy about it, you ask? I am ecstatic and grateful for having been blessed with an epiphany of this kind. 

 

Some of the pictures below may give you the glimpse of India and its people.

My favorite place I LOVE to go to, no matter what is the Mata Vaishnodevi Temple in Jammu, J&K.  

Mata Vaishno Devi's shrine is situated at a height of 5,200 feet above sea level and lies in the Trikuta Mountains. Vaishno Devi's shrine is 61 kilometres north of Jammu. The holy cave is approximately 30 metres long and 1.7 metres in height. It’s one of a kind experience that one can not miss out on. Being a huge Durga Ma devotee, I cant see myself commmg back to US  without going there and getting her blessings. Isn’t it lovely and mind boggling? 

 

 

And, my favourite food when I am there is always:

Aloo tikki chole, is a delicious and appetizing snack which hails from Northern India. Aloo tikki is a potato cutlet or croquette made with boiled potatoes and spices. It is served with chickpea curry. To add more flavours aloo tikki chole is topped with yoghurt and chutneys. There are mainly two kinds of chutney served with it which are green chutney and tamarind chutney. Yum!! 

 

 

So, there it is... my short trip of 3 1/2 weeks flew by in a jiffy but gave me heartfelt relief and content that I got to spend some time with my family and enjoy the simple moments...

Until next time....

Much love, 

Monika
