A Day Along the Ghats of Ram Jhula, Rishikesh – Oct 25-27, 2012

A Day Along the Ghats of Ram Jhula, Rishikesh

Just a quick summary of the last few days of Panchakarma….On the 25th I had a lovely massage and steam bath, this being the last day before beginning the cleansing part of panchakarma.  Twelve days of enemas, alternating between medicated oil, and medicated water enemas.  Usually, there is a higher percentage of water enemas, but this time, due again to the fact that I need a gentler approach this year, the majority of them will be oil, and those are not unpleasant in any way.  Plus I get to eat a paneer parantha every day before the oil enema!  :-).

So the last two days have been oil enemas, and the days, as they will be now, pretty boring with nothing much to write or photograph. It is more of a going inside time, and I always enjoy this forced kind of retreat inwards.  If there is anything that needs writing, I will post, and if not, I may be silent for several days now.

Ganga Rafting

Here is the last post before this stage of treatment began….a lovely day out along the ghats of ram Jhula, the weather still lovely and many local tourists enjoying the Ganga, either for spiritual bathing or just for fun!

Just a Cool relaxing Afternoon

It was wonderful to be out and about and see all the joyous groups of families and friends celebrating the Festival period which continues up until Diwali in November.
