It is Christmas day here in India. There is not much Christmas spirit in Tiruvannamalai (which is the usual situation in Hindu Tamil Nadu), but I wanted to wish you the deep happiness that you heart desires.
Here are a few local photos from this Christmas day, so you could see what our local Christmas is like.
The Arunachala peak in the early morning. It was a cloudy morning here.
A young Langur monkey, sitting in the trees near Arunachala.
The pleasant atmosphere eating at Sri Ramanasramam for Christmas dinner today.
Today’s meal. Rice and sambar, potatoes, and for a special treat we got the Indian equivalent to black-eyed peas.
We have had a great Christmas. We miss our family this time of year, but it makes us happy to go to Ramanasramam for the “Christmas feast.”
I wish the best to you and your family.
