An unlikely place for an enlightened Hindu master

Mary Clark Traveler Blog (http://thetravelinggene.blogspot.com)
Acharya Shree Yogeesh greets visitors at The Siddhayatan Hindu-Jain Tirth & Spiritual Retreat

One expects to find livestock, sprawling country vistas, and quaint little towns in Northeast Texas, but not a Hindu refuge! Mary found just that at Siddhayatan Tirth & Spiritual Retreat in Windom.

Acharya Shree Yogeesh welcomes people of all faiths, with the goal of "Helping souls and truth seekers become healthier, happier and advance spiritually."

It's a little touch of Nepal, right outside of Paris, Texas.
