Four members of the Guru Rambaranji’s Vedanta ashram in Mountain Rise returned recently from a pilgrimage to India. Sri Roopchand Dhanilal, spiritual head of the Guru Rambaranji’s Vedanta Satsang Society of South Africa and guru of the ashram, and three of his devotees Menka Inderjeeth, Shirley Mohan and Shireen Singh had planned to spend a month in India to attend the opening of a new university and temple and visit pilgrim sites. However, an unexpected experience transformed not only their travel plans, but also them. The group then returned to Delhi to catch a train to Amritsar to visit the Golden Temple, the holy place of worship for Sikh Gurus. From there they went to Madras to attend the opening of the Oneness complex in Andra Pradesh.
