Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche gave the following advice to his Western Students who were travelling to India for the first time:
"(Sometimes people) come from their first world countries to a developing nation expecting that everything should be exactly how it is at home. Here in India, worlds like "delay", "cancellation", "confirmation", "cleanliness", "no problem," "yes" and "no" all have different meanings. And in fact, if you learn how to appreciate those different definitions, you will find that this is what makes this part of the world magical. So, people who are wishing to come from the first world expecting their toilet will flush, and a hot shower, who are married to the whole principal of no trespassing, who value individual rights and personal space, might as well just look at pictures".
With a realistic and open-minded attitude to what you can expect from facilities as you travel around India, we expect that like us, you'll find India a magical place. Don't just look at pictures!
