Sitting at LAX waiting for a flight to Delhi. Going for a month-long retreat to study the Veda. First Kumbh Mela, a huge festival of devotion. Then a visit to Vrindavin, birthplace of Krishna. Finally, we go to Rishikesh at the headwaters of the Ganges, in the foothills of the Himalayas. More on this to come, plus pix.
