We spent a week at the ashram Parmath Niketan in Swarg Ashram, Rishikesh, practicing yoga, eating sattvik vegetarian, and doing a whole lotta nothing else. It was glorious, and as long as we didn’t venture into Rishikesh proper and stayed on the ashram premises (Shiva festival overtakes Rishikesh! Agh!) it was a very tranquil week. Let me give you a compare-and-contrast:

Outside the communal kitchen, where we ate vegetarian food on straw mats:

The view from the yoga hall:

One of the many touches of inspiration:

Life on the street (please forgive the sideways-ness of this recording):
