Papa (Swamiji) with me at the airport.

Papa (Swamiji) with me at the airport.

Durban Airport

This is a pic of Swami Shivapadananda (my 'Papa') and me at Durban airport in the 1970s. Swamiji would often take me or go with me to the airport when I left the Ashram at Avoca, on the North Coast of what is now KwaZulu-Natal, to return to Johannesburg. A privilege of which I am deeply aware.

As you can see, I still had a little hair in those days. Coming across this picture, I marvelled at how much like a Jewish psychologist I looked! ;-)
