UPDATE on relief work by Namarupa Bhandava by Swami Janardananda.
ON JUNE 16, 2013 DISASTER STRUCK IN UTTARAKHAND! An early monsoon brought days of torrential rain, bursting dams, landslides and floods. To date the death toll is many thousands with many still missing. Whole villages washed away. Places that had existed for hundreds of years gone without a trace. Those who had not perished were left with the shreds of the clothes they were standing in. The papers have been filled with stories of the disaster and survivors are trickling home with harrowing tales. Much has been written about the terrible plight of the many pilgrims in the area. - See more at: namarupa.org/bandhava/bandhava.php#sthash.rGH5auf3.dpuf
Pilgrimage is a powerful transformative experience. Sounds and images from the Namarupa Sadhana Yatra to some of the sacred places of India: December 23, 2012 to January 11, 2013. Some of the participants share their thoughts and feelings and the relationship of Yatra to Yoga. Many discovered that the spiritual pilgrimage is a yoga. Video by Robert Moses shot on a Canon 5DMk3 with some interviews on a very bumpy bus ride. Stills by Michelle Haymoz on a Canon 5DMk2. Edit FCPX. Some clips and the music recorded on an iPhone 4S.
