2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour In the afternoon I had appointment with Sandeep Jain, the cousin of Akruti. For the first time we had met in Amet where his mother from Surat and some other relatives of the Dak family had come for Maryada Mahotsav. Maryada Mahotsav was an occasion for the family to meet. They told me that in one year there are 4 to 6 such occasions, which they all voluntarily used. Sandeep...

2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour The day before, I had organized the details of my tour to Mount Abu with the travel agent recommended by the hotel. We already had talked on phone together, and with the help of my friends in Amet we roughly had contoured my trip to Mount Abu. It is very easy to realise travel plans in India, if the traveler knows where to go and how the visit should be framed. The negotiations...

2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour Coming home meant this Sunday also being nearer to departure. It was a curious atmosphere. Although the usual sounds were heard from the kitchen, there was a vibration different from usual. When someone in the family goes on a trip, those staying back are consoled by the certitude that the traveller will come back after some time. If a family member goes abroad for work it is...

2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour Departure from Amet was scheduled on 5th February, so there were only one and a half day left. I felt I should be near the saints the most often possible. According to the day’s structuring hitherto, I decided to go for Guru Darshan and then meet those monks I had not met until then. When I arrived, Acharyashree was busy in an important meeting. So I went to that part of the...

2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour After Diksha we went home for lunch and rest. In the afternoon we visited the monks, and I photographed all I visited, no matter if I knew their names or not. Sometimes there even was no time to note down their names, as they all were in a hurry, like always. They are living examples of the saying, “Make use of your time, do not waste it.” They have a lot of projects how to...

2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour Diksha was announced for this morning’s Pravachan. By chance, some days before I had met Samani Mudit Pragya. One of the Samanis accompanying her had given the information on her forthcoming Sadhvi Diksha. When I congratulated her, she had a glow from deep inside in her eyes. Everyone could see how happy she was, and how much she was looking forward to one of the most important...
