Day two: Discipline

Lunch Prayer

Before every meal, we chant Hare Krish­na until the Din­ing Hall fills up.

Day Two brought with it a rebal­ance in my kar­ma as I made up for last night’s ditch by stick­ing pric­etags on CDs, how­ev­er my boss said my bad pen­man­ship is a sign that I’m prob­a­bly bad in bed. But that lit­tle diss from Anan­da was not my great­est wor­ry — that would be suc­cumb­ing to final­ly using the bath­room, which I’ve not done yet.

With that one excep­tion, I’ve fall­en into the rou­tine of ashram life pret­ty smooth­ly: wak­ing up at 5 a.m. and going through the dai­ly sched­ule of med­i­ta­tion, chant­i­ng, yoga and lec­tures is prov­ing to be a dis­ci­plin­ing expe­ri­ence so far.

I miss Japan.
