Renowned organic horticulturalist Dr. Selvaraj led Shree Maa, Swamiji, and a dozen devotees on a tour of the Tamilnadu Agricultural University Horticultural Research Station in Ooty. Dr. Selvaraj, who has published a book on the medicinal uses of various herbs, showed everyone the organic herbal green house and gardens, pointing out the healing properties of the herbs at each plot along the way.
In the greenhouse a special tea to reduce anxiety was sampled. Next everyone walked slowly through the garden, finally resting in the shady relaxation area up the hill where everyone meditated and then tasted another organic herbal tea.
