The Enchanting Island of Mauritius
In this week's Spot, Sadhguru writes about his trip to Mauritius. "Just back from the enchanting island of Mauritius.

Just back from the enchanting island of Mauritius. A place of many flavors and people -- Arab sailors discovered it, the Portuguese visited, the Dutch, French and British settled, and the population a mix of Indians, Africans, French, English, Chinese…The food hard-core exotic, a hybrid of three continents.

Four days of work and play. An introductory talk was well-attended, facilitated by the High Commissioner of India, the former Minister of Education and a few people from Mauritius who worked hard to make this happen. The people of Mauritius are keen to build a center, and with the right support, this could happen. The first step we are now taking in new regions is to start with Isha Kriya - One Drop Spirituality - to build a solid foundation. When this picks up, it would give me good reason to get back.

Wonderful meetings with the Prime Minister and President, and a very interesting trip to the Grand Bassin, or the ‘Ganga Talao’ as known by Indo-Mauritians. A lake situated atop a volcanic crater, the view stunning. It is said that the water from the lake communicates with the Ganga, and there are plans by the local community to consecrate a linga. Was invited for a visit - it was touching to see the gentleness and devotion with which this place is being cared for, and the warmth with which we were welcomed.

Three days of golf was just incredible, incredible. Breathtaking scenery, lagoons, wonderful weather…

They say the volcanoes of Mauritius are not dead but ‘dormant’ and could awaken in a few thousand years. Still enough time for a few more rounds of golf…

Love & Grace

      "Little drops of water  Little grains of sand make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land. Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love, help to make earth happy, like the Heaven above".
Our Sadhguru's
Little drops of Spirituality,
Little words of Grace,
Lead the mankind to
The Ultimate destination.
