Take It Easy!

As promised in an early post, I have just put up a short musical montage of the new eco sensitive Sparsa Hotel here at Tiruvannamalai. So if you want to check out some of its facilities, have a look at the video on the VodPod at the bottom left margin of this page.

All the facilities at the Hotel are now fully operational except the Health Spa which will offer special ayurvedic treatments and varieties of massage. The Health Spa is expected to be up and running within the next month. However for the health conscious, the gym with its exercise machines is already operational. Will update as things open up.

Tomorrow hope to be posting a very interesting narrative I am currently working on regarding Monica Bose, a Westerner who spent time at Tiruvanamalai during the years of Sri Ramana Maharshi, and her theory that Arunachala was primarily a Vaisnava site before its more famous Shiva connection.

In the meantime have posted above a very special photograph of a wonderful buffalo - who needs to tell the world about its secret of relaxation - as this is definitely one of the most peaceful looking creatures I have ever seen!
