I am traveling in Asia now. I have visited Tiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore. I am in India now. India is a multi ethnic place and I observed first hand the Ashura Shia Muslim celebration at a mosque where men beat themselves and cut their babies heads so that blood dripped. All in the name of the love of God.

India has many religions but none so diverse as the Hindu religion. In the short time that I have been living here I have had several different religious (spiritual)experiences.
I have been traveling with my favorite dog Boo, which makes for an interesting experience in itself. He travels on airplanes as extra baggage. He has his own luggage and paperwork to go through customs and visa requirements. I have had no problem taking him into hotels or anywhere else for that matter. Right now we are getting settled in a house in the suburbs of Bombay. Ciao for now.

Interesting what you named your dog....hahaha

for a while. Thanks Vibrani for the good wishes. I have shifted from the house to a high rise condo in another suburb. We are about a block from the beach and a spectacular view of the Arabian Sea.

How long have you been travelling? Sounds like you're digging where you are. How cool that you've got boo along. What are you feeding him/her?


18 Apr 2005 @ 07:05 by b : Hi Judih
I have been in India about two months now. I am living in Bombay now called Mumbai. I do like it. Boo the dog has been eating dog food supplemented with vitamins and dog treats that he loves. I have been sampling a vast variety of Indian foods. As an American I have always had meat in my diet except when I went on veg or fruit diets. Hindu peoples are really serious about not eating meat. It took me a while to locate places where I could have a meal with meat. I can't in all conciousness ask my Hindu cook to prepare it. He considers it a great sin though he serves it to me with a smile when I order it in from a resturant.

interesting that you say that your cook smiles watching you eat meat even though in hinduism/buddhism(?), eating it is wrong. Do you think he simply feels compassion for you?
How about religion? Have you learned anything you could share with us here?

always curious, but not yet curious enough to go live there for awhile - i remain filled with questions

What's the Dwarf's name? Is the horse really white?

Judih, I like your pic. I think the Hindu cook smiled in pleasure at my getting satisfaction in eating meat after a long search for it. I don't think compassion is involved. The religion in India that I am following is respresented by its unique workability.
I am not ready to share that with anyone here though I might do so in private communication.  

20 Apr 2005 @ 13:47 by judih : okay, understood
judih@newciv.org is my e-mail if you feel like sharing.
If not, I respect your wish for privacy.
May your stay continue to be stimulating.


Hi judih, we also have internal imail here at ncn if you want to use your message center. It is not always good to put your private email into a public blog. I have taken the liberty of altering that for safety against your being spammed. You can change it back if you wish. I have sent you private email and given you my private email address also.

21 Apr 2005 @ 08:54 by b : I am a comparitve religionist
Judih, I will do that. Thanks.

Sharpthorne, You seem to be out of present time.  

21 Apr 2005 @ 11:45 by judih : appreciate it
Very good of you to edit.

It sounds like a wonderful sojourn.

When you get back this way (Southern California) give me a call.
