Days were spent in complete silence, some even in complete darkness. We needed to eat only with our hands. As per Guruji’s instruction, we also needed to mix all food on the plate in order to get detached from the taste.
One thing which I particularly enjoyed was eating blindfolded. It was really profound experience as you are totally cut off from the world as you know it – you don’t hear anything in pure silence, you don’t see anything, you don’t taste normal food as everything is mixed… Some very “strange”, deep feeling of contentment starts awakening. Everything was perfect until Guruji used the opportunity to put lot of fresh chilli in my food while I was eating blindfolded. Just imagine – you must be silent, you can’t take blindfolds from your eyes, you can’t even breathe loudly, and you just ate handful of super spicy chilli… That’s really cool experience.
All combined together, it was one of the best experiences in my life. And I would go for it again. Especially chilli part.
