Join Ajayan Borys as he shares his experience of living and meditating in silence for two months in a cave at the source of the Ganges at 10,000 feet in the Himalayas.
In 1996 meditation teacher Ajayan Borys journeyed to the source of the Ganges River high in India’s Himalayas. Intent on self-realization, he discovered a deserted cave in a Himalayan forest and for two months lived there alone, meditating in silence, surviving on one sparse meal a day. Through unexpected friendships with holy men, encounters with madmen and the Indian army, surviving harsh mountain conditions (including scorpions and mind-numbing cold), he was opened to the depths of the human Spirit—and to universal insights, the “whispers” of the Himalayas. Come and hear about Gangotri, its holy men and yogis, what it's like to live in a Himalayan cave, and the insights into meditation and life Ajayan gained there.
