It is said so beautifully “Man (or woman. . . ) proposes and God disposes,” or that the best way to make God laugh is to tell Him your plans!
So in that interesting way of the Divine Universe I find myself unable to come back home to India right now.
Due to the Covid surge in India the rules about who can come in have changed, and especially for those coming from the US!
As a sanyasi with a US passport, I am not able to get back home to the banks of Mother Ganga right now. I certainly understand and appreciate the strictness that the government has to impose on its borders in order to keep the country safe in the midst of this tragedy, but, of course, I wish I could come home
So, Since I can’t be in the Himalayas I have made a plan to embark on the sacred pilgrimage through the mountains and forests of California, and especially to use this time to raise awareness about the inter-connectedness of all life and earth, and our responsibility to protect and preserve it.
I thought the best way to share the whole plan would be in a video, so that I can personally and, with so much love, let you know what’s going on in my life, and what you can expect in the next couple of weeks.
I hope you’ll watch and listen, and know that – in my heart – you are all coming on yatra with me!
