Description

The following chapter is an account of a new heirophany, a sacred location where the human and divine worlds meet and the guide assists such transition from one world to another. The location is not in India or Sri Lanka and the gods appear to residents who live not in distant legend but at the present time. The location of this new pilgrimage site is in South Wales, several hundred miles from any concentration of British Tamils.
