Anil is a very simple, trustworthy and friendly man. To me he is worth gold. He is a rickshaw driver, gardener, carpenter, cook, whatever you need, he will do it for you!!
He has been born and grown up in Varkala. His father was a doby wallah (laundry man) and his family is still doing this under the most primitive and simple conditions.
Him and his wife are now my partners and helpers in my small business. I would be most happy to introduce them to you, when you come and visit us in Varkala.
My name is Anu Romy Emmrich, original Swiss national, living in Varkala, Kerala since nearly 6 years. I can’t say, it was my decision which brought me to this beautiful land. It was one of those miraculous happenings, where the mind had no chance to interfere. It was a call, which could not be overheard.
I am living in a beautiful house, about 15 to 20 walking minutes away from the tourist cliff in Varkala, but only 5 minutes from the main papanasam beach, where the Indians come to celebrate their puja every day. Varkala lies in the south of India, 1 hour north of Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala.
Ever since I live in this house ( 2 years ago), it was my dream and vision to create a space for people to meet and share their experiences.
My first introduction with India, however was 10 years back, when I fell in love with Osho (My beloved Spiritual Master). I then spent several months in Pune. My name given by Osho is Ma Prem Anugrahi. It was a my first introduction with a sense of understanding of who I really am. Ever since I am trying to go beyond east and west, male and female, sun and moon…
You might wonder, why I have this dream of people gathering in a beautiful place, filled with love, creativity, music, dance, meditation, fun and joy? Well, it is rather simple: it is the only way, when sun and moon, east and west can truly meet! All my struggling to bring them together have failed… and why else should I be here, if I didn’t want to meet GOD! And I would like to share it with you!!
