Well I got a surprise when I went to go buy our luggage, I was showing my son at the bank how to make a deposit and forgot to take my ATM card out of the machine which ate it. Maybe I might be able to get it back Tuesday if I am at the bank when they open or it will be 2-3 business days, but of course I will be in India.Could be a Fun trip with no money, I have a free breakfast and a bottle of water paid by the tour. Thank goodness everything else is paid for,rooms at both hotels, transportation to and from air port and hotels. But that is it could be a trip to remember.

Unfortunately Blogger is still not letting me upload photos today. Try this link to see my teacher:

Thank you S.N. Goenka for teaching Vipassana mediation, it has help with the roller coaster of a life that I lead. Will be flying into Delhi on India January 3rd with my son. to meet tour guide two days before actual tour begins, so will staying at a local hotel then. Tour info here But I will not be able to see you at that time, Goenkaji.

Next fall, I plan an extended visit of Northern India and the Buddha's Trail, with a quick dash to Nepal to see Gotma's birthplace. It is gracious that the Nepalese government does not require a visa for a 72 hour visit.

Much metta and may your dreams continue to be realized.

Gregor Gable, Vipassana Mediator. I am going to Ardh Kumbh Mela:
Allahabad, India January, 2007, where I plan on passing out 2,000 postcards with words "It lasts a lifetime" and I plan on sitting and serving during the route. Sure that I will make it to Dhamma Giri on that visit.

Be Happy and metta, gregor
