Hey everyone, so we have been here for two days now and have gotten to see some pretty interesting stuff. Yesterday, we went to the Hanuman temple (who is the monkey god). We walked around inside the temple and just observed people worshiping, it was really strange, there was just this darkness there that is indescribable and those who have been know what I am trying to talk about. There was an urgency and everyone was just trying to get through quickly. There were gurus sitting around in this trans, and they would offer advice to people who needed it. Idols littered the walls and people would stare and touch them with the hope that they would receive a blessing. It was a dark and empty place filled with people who are desperately seeking.
I say this all not to paint a negative picture of these people but to try to paint a picture of the reality of what it is like to be in a country that is not only controlled by this religion but oppressed, and it overflows into every aspect into their culture. They are a beautiful people full of disparity, just like you and I.
I love this place and can't wait to tell people what we are seeing.
