Tantric Travel Log:
How Ganesha Wins the Mango
I went to south India in search of source. Having practiced meditation, yoga, and tantra in over a dozen foreign countries, I'll admit I'm on a frenzied spiritual quest and India holds a certain mystique, a certain uncertainty. Among other miracles, India is the birthplace of Buddha.
My pilgrimage began a few months ago in Kanyakumari. It is the southernmost point of India, the meeting point of three oceans and a significant spiritual destination for both Hindu and Christian pilgrims. We went to a temple dedicated to the youthful virgin aspect of Shiva's wife who holds the energy of Mother Mary.
