Hi, I registered especially for this unique purpose of searching for people interested for a long trip in India. I would like to learn independently of any institution vedic knowledge through libraries. I'm not planning to search for any job unless something nice opens. Yeah I'm not easy with jobs or scholarship. Living on low budget should be possible. As I do not know too much about India except one place that I do well I'm open to any place. The departure could be any time within the six next months or even later. By "long" I mean three months to one year.

Welcome to India Mike. Are you looking for fellow travelers who might be interested in joining you for a long trip India? Or you are looking for a institution for some training. Your post is a bit confusing for me.

Hi. I also uniquely interested just to give it a try out for long trip in India. Sufi knowledge is interested in me but vedic also but not scholarship and jobs, because works make me allergic. But nice job I also like if money is good, but not including work. I like to learn with free library but books must not be heavy. My budget is also medium, but also low is also okay. I would like to know that one place you also know well and we can go there or then too I am open to any other place also. We can start soon, even in six or seven years for a "long" time, even two weeks, or more, but one year will be difficult but I can talk to my boss if you also like.

yeah I'm not sure of my english, i did never really understand how this language works. anyway ...
by "independently of any institution" I meant without any relation of any kind with any institution; studying as a free bird, to be self-taught.
I'm looking for people motivated by some personal responsibility and ready to move if necessary rather than bound to some profesionnal responsibility and wanting to give a break for some time.
Travelling is not compulsory, for example If you are living in a place in India where we'll find all that is necessary to study then you might not need to travel. Only me will do.

are you serious? anyway before starting such a project I need to personally have several chats with the interested people and meet them at least a few times. That's why I'm planning this project to take place only in many months, not right now.

Ha Ha he was just pulling your leg ( not serious, taking the piss a bit )
I was thinking the same as your post sounded a bit La De Dar, and maybe a tad short on positive definitives .

Hi Voyager, welcome to IndiaMike. I hope you don't mind that folks are joking around, it is probably because it is not clear what *you* mean either .

But, looking at your first message, you seem to want to go to India to stay in a place with an excellent library system full of Vedic literature - is that right? I am not sure how having a travel partner fits into this - I would say that is a red herring.

Maybe you can post instead in the Spiritual Matters forum?

I think the places which might suit you would be the Ramakrishna Matt, who have many publications on Vedanta and who have beautiful centers in many places. But, you say do not want any institution either, which makes it complicated. And you don't want to work either? All a tall order.

If you actually want to dedicate yourself to a scholarly period, you may be better off being outside India, where there are excellent resources in the big University libraries of the world, and also online.


Maybe you can explain a bit more clearly what you have looked at so far. I am curious with your "Location: uk" - this is used on India Mike for Uttarakhand as well as United Kingdom. Forgive me for saying this, but your English doesn't seem great, so maybe you should spend a bit longer in formulating your posts to be more clear.

Hope you are able to get what you would like out of India and IndiaMike!

PS: have you been to India before?

don't hope for me, anyway ... what would you do if I do mind?
It's not my english that is actually the problem. That's the states of mind.

who said "excellent", "full of vedic litt."? why exagerating?

I'll search about the Ramakrishna Matt. I don't care about whether it's beautiful or not.

no institution ... yeah that's what I said, it's mostly that I don't want to bother with paperwork and money for registration. I saw university enrollment is very complicated. If you read carrefully my original post you'll see I'm not rigid about the job matter.

Whose state of mind? What state of mind?

Yes I am sorry I exaggerated. How would you like to study the Vedas?

Great. You can probably look at some of the Vedanta books they produce. They have ashrams in many cities.

Yes I understand. Another possibility is the Krishnamurti Foundation, they are big on self study at one's own pace.

Well, a visa for a start. I don't think anyone is just allowed to stay in India "upto a year". Also, I think books for study and groups for Vedic discussion exist in many places without th culture shock of living in India.

You said you "know" a place, which is rather confusing, sorry.

well... I probably lacked of precision in my initial post, maybe because I'm not sure enough of this language, also I was not expecting replies making fun of it, with exaggeration, and sparking an atmosphere of such seriousness. That is indeed a particular state of mind. This is just a statement! don't take this, especially when I say "making fun of it" as a new opportunity to give sorries as that usually mean it hurt. That did not hurt, be as you like I'm just watching.
These kind of behaviours are starting to be outdated.

I would do that as the interested one in his home wherever on the planet sources are available. Staying in India is for my personal.

I'm not aiming to think too much about ashrams or this kind of foundations. If I settle in India maybe I'll approach one day these things just for curiosity.

ok, that's indeed just a hint. In the context of a post about visiting India I took the word "know" to mean "visited".

Exaggeration? How can you claim that Rasika is exagerating?

Personal information is personal here. But I can assure you that Rasika is very well-placed to know about the facilities available in UK universities, and perhaps many others in the world too.

You want help with some ill-/un-defined project. If answers don't fit your expecations, then just leave them. People are trying.

how dare you make such a statement? if any new-comer did so, even for a fair reason he would have been kicked out. What are you thinking about yourself? you gained some fame in IM due your presence for many years now and you think you can spill out your troubled emotions as you like?! :
It's better I stop here my comments to your poor statement because that's indeed a very poor one. If you have some courage go and read back the entire conversation.
