THE FLOWER RAJ HOME PAGE:

A document & archive project that seeks to generate & preserve written, recorded, visual & oral histories of seekers, travellers & 'escapers', who set out from the West, in the 1950s, 1960s & 1970s, to travel to India. We also record Indian & Tibetan seekers & travellers who interacted with & influenced them, and in turn were influenced by them.

remote-blunt Looking at the past in the light of the present, we also publish current material, stories, blog posts, photos & articles in the present time.

OUR AIMS:

OUR AIMS:

OUR AIMSTo generate, document & archive permanently, written, pictorial past & present oral histories of travellers & seekers who set out from the West, from the 1950s to the present day, to travel to India.

To record Indian & Tibetan seekers & travellers who interacted with & influenced Western culture & the Western travellers and in turn were influenced by them. To record their sometimes ground-breaking achievements, their sometimes hilarious situations, their lives, their loves, their highs & their lows.

To do this with love & respect; to be as open and truthful as practical; to do no harm.

To investigate the 'escapers, travellers & seekers in the land of the Gods' whose lives we want to preserve for generations to come.

To preserve these remembrances & this material for generations to come, especially our children & our children's children.
