So I've found a name for my blog!!! Yay!
I've spent the past few days thinking about how my life has changed in the past few years - taking initiation, travelling to India, going back to university, meeting my husband, getting married, moving away from South Africa - and how it continues to change - moving to a new continent and into a new home, taking up Odissi dancing, going to a new temple, being married!
It has been a journey. A journey that was sometimes tiring, sometimes uplifting, sometimes slow and at other times a little too fast. And then I thought that yes, a journey is all well and good, but a journey that leads nowhere is nothing but a waste of time. And so I hope that everything that I am doing right now, and everything that I wish to do in the future (dance, travel, write, serve), will take me on a journey back to Godhead, back to Krishna's lotus feet. Back home.
And so, I've decided to call this blog, chronicling my journey through life (not always timeously, or well), 'pratyagati', which is Sanskrit for 'journey home'. Perhaps this lifetime is only one part of many more parts of my journey, but it is a journey nonetheless.
