swami sings…


Rakesh is observing a Deeksha of 41 days dedicated to the God Ayyappa…these days are a kind of penance where the participants live a very reduced and spartan life, the idea being that at the end you are physically, mentally and spiritually stronger. Rakesh tells me no women are allowed in this kind of Deeksha except for old women (???!!!) Apparently Ayyappa was a single God and he did not like women…hmmmmmm
