Pictures from the 2013 India Volunteer Pilgrimage

November 2 – 20, 2013

Our Pilgrimage consisted of two parts:

1. Two Weeks of Volunteer Service working with orphaned and poor children in Chennai, India.

2. Four days of spiritual enrichment at Ramana Ashram and Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai, India.

Part 1 Summary

From November 2 – 16, we volunteered with Global Volunteers in Chennai, India. We worked in two orphanages, South East Asia Mission (SEAMs) and Assisi Illum. We also worked in a private school for the poor, Christ the King School.

Here are some photos from part 1 of our trip:

Part 2 Summary

On November 16, we traveled to Tiruvannamalai for celebration of Deepam. Each one followed his/her own guidance regarding what to do while we were in Tiruvannamalai, but some of the activities group members participated in include walking around Arunachala with thousands of Indian pilgrims, visiting Ramanashram, climbing to the top of Arunachala to see the Deepam fire close up, and getting nice, long massages.
