DEENABANDHU ASHRAM, RATTENPURA, UDAIPUR RAJASTHAN

 This is how they travel here in this part of India.....
 The drivers are the best ones here....they control so well.....all hanging on the vehicle even the young women...
The roads are much better than anywhere else
 Sign of Capuchin simplicity and Poverty in this ashram....Br. Shradanand (Augustine) is the guru here....he lives in a simple house which is filled with snakes too....but no harm he is at home with them...
 It is a place where many religious and priests come for contemplation...it is simple dwelling....initially you don't like but once living there you love it.....
 The cave for prayer......

 Inside the cave.....just be there and you experience the peace.....

 Br. Sradananda gives herbal medicines and conducts healing...a lot of villagers come to him. He is also known for PRANIK healing....he asked him to conduct on me and he did....i did experience some relief......poor villagers come and wait for hours and hours to get his blessings....Mother Mary is his source of inspiration...

 He is known as Guru.....lover of nature too.....we prayed together ....

He took me around to show the property which belongs to the diocese....the capuchins initially began their ministry here and later converted into an ashram
 The wheat fields...harvesting is going on....its all golden.....it rained late so harvest is also late...now the rains will come only in July....
 Its a lonely place surrounded by the fields and of course snakes......they don't harm....they live with the Guru
Mother Earth is enchanting.....the small hills beckon you.....
