Travels in India

Huwa allazee yusayyirukum fee albarri wa albahri 

He it is Who makes you travel by land and sea.
- The Quran 10:22

This is a quick note to update that I am traveling at the moment in India with my wife, which God willing, will be lasting till the end of this month. The cities I will be visiting are: Kolkata, Delhi, Agra, Ajmer, Jaipur, Mumbai and Calicut. I am afraid I will be irregular in updating the site during this period.

This traveling is a lovely opportunity to revisit the land which I love so much. I wish the Indian sub-continent were never divided. In this trip I am also meeting some of the friends of Technology of the Heart site for the first time. What fun when Hearts unite! Thats the best part of this trip.

India is the land of great spiritual personalities including many many Sufi Saints. Just today I visited final resting places of some of the most favorite Sufi Masters including Hazrat Inayat Khan and Qutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki. Last night was an opportunity to listen to qawwali at His Holiness Nizamuddin's Dargah while visiting his tomb and also that of Hazrat Amir Khusro's. May Allah be pleased with them all. I have some observations and thoughts about the good, bad and ugly side of the Sufi Shrines, but that will be later. Apart from the saints and sages, also visited some great monuments and place of historical significance.

Such trips are filled with unexpected gifts from the Unseen. For example today encountered a lady who almost forcefully guided us to a special visitation to a rarely preserved footprint on stone of Holy Prophet Muhammad and his preserved beard as well as a copy of one of the earliest Quran, hand written by His Holiness Ali, spiritual successor of the Prophet. All praise be to the Only Being for such unexpected gifts sent from behind the Veils.

The trip is also enriched by great friends of the Heart and true pilgrimages are those where one travels to friends of the Heart.

If you're in and around the cities or simply live in India I would love to hear from you and the easiest way to reach me would be to send me a text message so that we can schedule a time to chat. My temporary Indian number would be (+91) 900 7419 777.

Do you any suggestion for unusual place or people to visit in Mumbai, Jaipur, Ajmer, Calicut (Kohizkode) and Kolkata (Calcutta)?

With Wishes of Perfect Peace and Blessings,

Chanakyapuri, Delhi
