7.Coimbatore, Sadhguru´s ashram

The last 3 days (from Monday to Wednesday) Hilde and me changed the “drama queen” title. That means, I was frustrated and just not in the mood and Hilde tried to please me and solve all the problems about our travel, then a half day later she was frustrated and had problems with everything (I exaggerate) and I tried to find and do everything to get her into a better feeling.

In Coimbatore, we went for a dinner. She found a place, where we could eat a burger (non-Indian food!!) and have ice cream. I can´t find words to describe how much we enjoyed the veg burger and the big portion of ice cream!!! We didn´t eat the last 3 days (just bananas and biscuits), because we were always on the way… It felt so good to have western food without strong spices. We went home and no one was frustrated anymore. We had a great night (it was full moon).

On the 11th of May, we caught a bus to the ashram of Sadhguru. It was “only” 1 and half hours away (after travelling daily 4-6 hours). Hilde came to India because of him. He gave a workshop from the 11th till the 14th, but we didn´t got in… We spent the whole day in the ashram. It was amazing. First, we went to the Shiva monument and then we gave all our electronics and shoes in the wardrobe (it was forbidden to photograph in the ashram, so these photos are from the internet).

There was a place for men and women separate to go underwater and touch the Shiva Linga. We undressed ourselves and put on the orange dresses we got and went down the big stone stairs to the cold water. It was a silent place, no talking, just experiencing. I got in the water, went to the Linga sculpture and touched it. I swam to the waterfall after that, stood under it and I experienced a feeling like opening up all my energies from the top of my head to down my body. It was like a clear energy stream. When we dressed up after our shower, it wasn´t a problem to be completely wet (no towels), because of the heat.

Hilde and me went to the next place, a room (building) with a big black Shiva Linga in the middle. They let people in every 15 minutes. As we walked in I sensed a vibration in the air. You could even hear it. In the room while meditation it was stronger. The whole room was on a different frequency. After the bell rang softly (it meant that the group should stand up and go outside), we decided to stay 15 more minutes (it was possible). That 30 minutes there took us somewhere else. It was so amazing and calming.

We had lunch after that and went to the 3rd building (these were more like temples very close to each other). I couldn´t feel so much there. The “devi” energy was there, a powerful Indian goddess. The energy and the colors were darker. Hilde told me that it was the energy of death. She could feel it, because she lost loved ones. I didn´t experienced a loss of my loved one in my life (consciously).

We arrived home around 7-8pm. It was a very interesting day with a lot of inner experience.

On Friday, we didn´t do anything special. We were in bed, red our book, talked, relaxed and in the evening, we got on two different busses and left Coimbatore. Hilde travelled to Tiruvannamalai (3 hours away from Auroville) to an ashram where she had the feeling of needing to go. She planned to stay there for 2 weeks. The mountain nest to the ashram is really powerful. I got on a bus an after 9 hours of travelling I arrived in Pondicherry, took a taxi and was at my guest house at 6am… I had a strange feeling of coming home. Auroville didn´t change in this 3 weeks. It felt like I didn´t even went away from here.


Az utolsó 3 napban Hilde és én cserélgettük a “dráma királynö” szerepet. Valamikor én voltam kiborulva és semmi se volt jó és Hilde mindent megpróbált higgadtan szervezni és javítani a helyzeten, egy fél napon belül ö volt kiakadva és én igyekeztem a kedvében járni. Ez szerencsére Coimbatore-ban megszünt. Elmentünk egy hamburgereshez (perzse csak vegetáriánus van) és egy nagy adag fagyi után mind a ketten megnyugodtunk. Egy csodálatos esténk volt, telihold ideje volt.

11-én elmentünk 1 és fél órányira Sadhguru ashramjába (Hilde miatta jött Indiába). Elöször megnéztük a hatalmas Shiva szobrot és utána sétáltunk el az ashramig. Minden elektronikus dolgot le kellett adni, szóval a képek az internetröl vannak. Gyönyörü volt a hely. Az elsö dolog, amit csináltunk, az a fürdés volt. Férfiaknak és nöknek külön volt egy mélly barlangszerüen kialakitott helyen egy vizzel teli medence, a közepén Shiva Linga szoborral. Le kellett teljesen vetközni, majd belebújni egy narancssárga ruhába és megmártózni a vízben. A vízesés alá álva olyan érzésem volt, mintha megnyilt volna valamilyen energia a fejtetömtöl végig az egész testemen. A fördés után nem volt gond, hogy teljesen vizesek vagyunk (nem volt törölközönk), mert a nap (40-50 fokban) gyorsan megszárított.

Ezután elmentünk egy meditációs terembe, aminek a közepén egy nagy fekete Shiva Linga volt. Miközben mentünk be, érezni lehetett valamilyen vibrációt. 15 percenként volt csoportváltás, de mi még egy 15 percre maradtunk, mert lehetett és mert nagyon jól esett. Utána ebédeltünk és a harmadik helyre is elmentünk, ahol én nem sokat éreztem, de Hilde annál inkább. Mondta, hogy bennt a halál energiája volt jelen. Ha valakinek meghalt egy szerette, akkor tudott valamilyen fajta elengedési szertartást is csinálni. Este 8 körül értünk haza.

Másnap semmit se csináltunk. Este 8kor indult Hilde busza Thiruvannamali-ba és az enyém Pondicherrybe. 6 emberrel kezdtem az utat és egyedül fejezem be. Hajnali 5re értem Pondi-ba és onnan taxival mentem Auroville-be. Olyan érzés volt, mintha hazaérnék… Auroville semmit se változott 3 hét alatt, csak a közeli tó lett sokkal de sokkal szárazabb. Tényleg vízhiány van…
