Sheldrake at the Temple in Thanjavur

Not that I am trying to establish any spiritual or epistemological ancestry in my view of the world … but here is another hero/friend of mine at the Shiva Temple in Thanjavur. You may not know that from 1974 to 1985 Dr. Sheldrake worked at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad, India. While in India, he also lived for a year and a half at the ashram of Fr Bede Griffiths in Tamil Nadu, where he wrote his first book, A New Science of Life. Interesting how the ley lines of our life intersect at the most unusual spaces.
