Shopping for Nirvana in India
Inside this deck find 52 SHOPPING FOR NIRVANA IN INDIA spirited adventures. Nirvana is about the objects you collect, the people you meet and the experiences you have. On a trip, you have limited time to see and do everything and if you are organized like me, you have "the list." I suggest gathering clippings from travel magazines, friend referrals and on-line suggestions. Even with your list in hand, you also have to be open to happy accidents where you discover something new and exciting. It might be a chance encounter with a Holy Man down a winding lane or an impromptu invite to a Durga Festival where you rush on stage and become the star photographer. You take a chance on a trip. You put yourself out there and it's your story to tell. These cards reflect my journeys in 2010 and 2012. I encourage you to create yours.
"Join me in India as I take you from the Welcome Ceremony in the
Thar Desert where I drank opium juice from a shaman's hands
and got slightly loopy to the Agni Pooja Sunset Fire Ritual
at Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi, which made my hair smell like
incense for days! This is not your parents travel guide..."
The idea for my travel card deck came to me in 2000 on my first trip to Hong Kong. At the posh store Shanghai Tang the only items I could afford at the time were the green tea room spray and a colorful deck of cards depicting sights in the city. I thought it was so clever and much easier than carrying a heavy book. It was then and there I dreamed of one day designing my own deck of travel cards with my photographs and travel insights. Many years later Shopping for Nirvana was born so I invite you to share in my passion for culture, spirituality, meeting new people, and having new experiences with my card decks.
