Love Vibes

infinitegiverenergyunlimitedlove vibes3

 

Love has been described in infinite ways -“The elixir of Joy”, “The Antidote to Pain”, “The Alpha and the Omega”.  Love fuels the fire of our passion.  It lifts us from our limitations to our potential.  It transcends time and space.  Love forgets differences and prejudices.  Love heals.  Love is the vibration of the spirit – the song of the Universe.

When we live in the love vibration- our energy resonates qualities of compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, respect, generosity, joy and peace.  We expand when we love – we contract when we hate.

When we love, we exude a magnetic charisma that attracts positivity and goodness.  We feel light and shine brighter.

When we love we see a connection – that every presence on this planet – human, animal, plant  – every material are all interdependent – there is no separation.  What affects one – affects us all!

When we are in the love vibration we encounter people and situations that inspire us and guide us toward the fulfilment of our potential and passion.  We are in the flow of life.  Our role shifts from reactive to creative.  We are empowered!

In Awe of Temple city – Madurai

June 1, 2018 2 comments

My first visit to Madurai left me in awe of this temple city.   Although, Chennai is the capital city of Tamil Nadu, Madurai claims to be its soul.  It is one of the oldest cities in India, a metropolis that traded with ancient Rome and was a great capital long before Chennai was even dreamt of.

With a single day I wanted to see as much as I could of this beautiful city.   After a vegetarian breakfast in Vasantham, I set out with my friendly driver.  The first stop was Meenakshi Amman temple. Read more…

Temple Hopping in Siem Reap

November 20, 2017 Leave a comment

My recent trip to Siem Reap was an eye-opener to the grand and majestic temples constructed by Kings of the Khmer. In my 2 days there, I went temple hopping in a Tuk-Tuk and discovered the historical heritage and undisturbed beauty of Sieam Reap.

Pre Rup

Pre Rup  is a Hindu temple at AngkorCambodia, built as the state temple of Khmer king Rajendravarman and dedicated in 961 or early 962. It is a temple mountain of combined brick, laterite and
sandstone construction.

It is located about 1km south of the Eastern Mebon and is a popular spot for sunset. The temple consists of a pyramid-shaped temple-mountain with the uppermost of the three tiers carrying five lotus towers. Pre Rup means ‘Turning the Body’ and refers to a traditional method of cremation in which a corpse’s outline is traced in the cinders: this suggests that the temple may have served as an early royal crematorium.

A weekend getaway to coffee land –‘Chikmagalur’

February 7, 2017 Leave a comment

Last weekend we took a trip to the coffee land of Karnataka – ‘Chikmagalur’.    For a change we booked a homestay in the middle of the coffee plantations.   We started from Bangalore at 6am and reached Chikmagalur around 11am (the distance is ~250km).   We had hired a car for our round trip.  After reaching our homestay and unpacking we immediately set off for our first day of sightseeing to Bababudangiri and Mullyanagiri mountain peaks.  We also spent some time at the beautiful Jhari falls.  Cars can go up almost near the peak.  After this there is a jeep service to take you to the waterfall.
