I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the many stories the librarian/guide told throughout the narrator's climb of Chamundi Hill. I plan on re-reading this book someday because it is rather like looking at a painting: the viewer/reader will bring one's own experiences to the understanding of it/5(6).

Climbing Chamundi Hill consists of two interlaced parts: a delightful collection of Indian folk- and fairy tales (or at least folk-like and fairy-like tales--their sources are never given), and a set of commentaries upon them that seems intended to lay out /5(3).

For those who love literary fable, along with a dash of spiritual spice, Climbing Chamundi Hill will prove to be a pleasurable, thought-provoking exercise. An American traveler in India chances upon an old storyteller, who joins him on his pilgrimage to the top of a holy hill and along the way shares the authentic flavor of India through stories of courtesans and kings, holy men and thieves, talking animals, and mythical lands.

[Ariel Glucklich] -- The spiritual journey of a young American tourist to the twelfth-century temple of Chamundi is interwoven with retellings of thirty ancient Indian stories about the difficult path of enlightenment.

This realisation dawned upon me recently while doing an early morning cycling trip to Chamundi Hills in Mysore, Karnataka, India. Though Chamundi Hill is not a mountain, the lessons learnt are still valid for me.

The Beginning. It was my first time cycling to a longer distance, that too to a challenging terrain. Mysuru: Climbing the 1, steps leading to the summit of Chamundi Hills is sure to set the tone for an immensely gratifying experience for the devotees’ encounter with the deity atop the hill.

At the top of the 1, steps up Chamundi Hill, there lies a 12th-century temple that houses the golden statue of Chamundi, the Hindu goddess worshipped by the Maharajas. Set against the exotic background of Southern India, this title follows the experiences of a young tourist, who embarks upon the arduous climb to the sacred Shiva temple.

Climbing Chamundi Hills, a flight of steps Many people begin climbing from the foothill at the crack of dawn; some devotees of the deity, some fitness enthusiasts, some in groups of chatting friends, some newly married couple, there are also kids accompanying their parents in the climb.

Steps to Enlightenment A new book uses colorful teaching tales from India to tease out insights about karma, reality, and the meaning of life. Climbing Chamundi Hill exists in that. “This is a beautifully re-told Ramayana. Menon finds the perfect balance of detail and narrative excitement.

It's the best single-volume version of the Ramayana.” —Ariel Glucklich, Associate Professor of Hinduism, Georgetown University, author of Sacred Pain and Climbing Chamundi Hill (forthcoming). From the Publisher/5(5).

A popular tourist and pilgrimage site, Chamundi Hill honors this consort of Shiva who saved the citizens of the city of Mysore from the monstrous rule of their mythical demon-king.

In Climbing Chamundi Hill, Ariel Glucklich takes the reader on a mystical adventure to this enchanted place. A young American tourist goes out for a jog and rests at 5/5(3). The most popular and the most frequented is the so called Chamundi Hills Road. This road starts from a junction of NHon the outskirts of the city and wriggles its way up to the hill top.

This is the bus route. The Chamundi Bus stand too is located close to the parking lot. Reaching Chamundi Hilltop by bus or even trek (!) is described later. Ariel Glucklich's Climbing Chamundi Hill: Steps with a Storyteller and a Reluctant Pilgrim draws deeply on Indian tradition.

One character tells stories and then quizzes the other on their meaning. This form was a mainstay of Sanskrit literature, Somdeva's evergreen Vetalpanchasmati, the stories related by a terrifying ghost to King Vikram, being just one.
