Our New Quartzite Path

It's Rudraksha harvest time in the forests of the monastery. There are hundreds of thousands of cobalt blue fruits on the ground today.

They are falling on the picnic tables. Everywhere. Quite a sight!

Jonathan Anderson, our master path builder, made great progress today putting stone on the Tiruneri Path.

He is quite artistic about it, and proud that he never did this in his life yet is performing like a pro.

This is quartzite, a stone that is so hard the little critters that inhabit every cubic nanometer of the tropics (moss, algae, fungi and such) can't get a grip on it, so the path never becomes slippery.

See if you can tell which is the old and which is the new path.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
