Re: India

I love the culture and people from India as well.  I have studied with 
Hari Dass at Mt Madonna Center in Santa Cruz for over 26 years.  He is 
silent and has not spoken in over 40 years.  He writes on a small chalk 
board.  He is a teacher and a hard worker even at 76 years old.  I am one 
the musicians and actors at the commumity about to bring looping to the 
center using drones,sitar-synth-guitar and more...Om and Out   Papa Dave
