Have met up with Masha at rain-swept Gokarna. The day after I arrive the heavens decided to show me what the west coast monsoon is capable of. It'd had rained all night and all day.
Yesterday we were blessed with meeting Divyanand Swamiji at the steps of the temple overlooking the town beach, whom Masha had heard about from a friend she made in Kerala. A Sanyassin, Kriya Yoga Archarya and warm-hearted person who is open to discourses on anything under the sun, and who's dwelling is a deserted stone building at the top of the hill with gorgeous views of the beach, he is the quintessential wise man on the hill!
