The Final Days of the Group Living

The last day of our journey started with a fire ritual in the early morning – after another bath in the Godavari river.

Around 9 we set out to the last part of our trip. After about 2 hs we left the highway at a little village and went up a hill to the Satya Narayana temple of Annavaram. It is a unique temple in so far as there Lord Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi are worshipped together with Lord Shiva – an expression of synthesis.

After the visit of the temple we went down to the village and were received in a house, where first there was a ritual in honour of Sri Kumar and later we were presented a delicious lunch.

Later we continued the journey to arrive at Visakhapatnam around nightfall.

Friday we had our final lecture in the retreat centre, ending a very profound seminar about topics of Cosmogenesis. In the evening a little ceremony closed the group living: Words of thanks were spoken and clothes distributed to all the members who have helped to realise this beautiful group living. Afterwards we all sat together enjoying a festive dinner.

    Hi, These lines needs correction. Lord Vishnu’s Consort is Lakshmi not Parvati (Lord Shiva’s Consort).

    “After about 2 hs we left the highway at a little village and went up a hill to the Satya Narayana temple of Annacharam. It is a unique temple in so far as there Lord Vishnu and his consort Parvathi are worshipped together with Lord Shiva ”

    Thankyou.
