Lake Titicaca with Mohanji
About This Event
Lake Titicaca is a beautiful and much-venerated sacred lake that lies on the border between Peru and Bolivia, near Copacabana. According to Incan mythology, it was from Lake Titicaca that the creator god Viracocha rose up to create the sun, moon, stars, and first human beings.
The Floating Islands of Uros, consists of residents from pre-Incan Aymaran descent. Their custom is to weave everything out of reeds, the islands themselves, including their tiny homes, their beds and even their boats.
One of the most beautiful things about the lake is the absence of development along its shoreline. Titicaca remains the Aymara’s inland sea and its edges are still occupied by farmsteads and well-worked fields. Titicaca is big, but you can always see its banks – tall, bare cliffs and grassy hillsides; mountains and sandy pinnacles.
It’s as wide as a sea and as deep as a canyon; as enticingly blue as the Mediterranean but as cold as a Scottish Loch. You can’t swim in it, you can’t really sail across it, and you can’t ever quite know it. Yet it’s one of the most peaceful places on Earth, providing solace, hope and stability.
"I found my heart expanding with so much of love for everyone and every being around me. I started connecting to Mother Earth there, I felt her as the epitome of patience, felt her nurturing Love and the mountains made me connect to the vastness of her creation. Wow, even thinking of this as I write, opens all these feelings within me now! I personally realised that my Baba Mohanji, helped me drop off many of my baggage on this trip and made me experience the essence of Motherhood that exists in all of us, including me. It really transformed me into seeing every woman as a Mother and so only Love and compassion flowed." - Jayashree Mukund, Iowa USA
