Any of ya'll have a source of a half cup to a cup of naturally occurring sindhura powder (from a river)?

Yup, I get it from a thermal spring from the centre of the island.

That is so Vajrayogini!

What part of the world is this island in? Greece?

Yes, the site is on the island of Lesbos (sooooo... Vajrayogini) Greece http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbos

It's about a 40-50km drive from where I live.

That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

It's true, Ngodrup, I'm not 100% sure who you are yet... so I hesitate to give a saucy reply to this.

But, I'm enjoying solving the riddle... and your on-line personality.

Yudron,

You're welcome to share a little joke. I'm not always serious.
We can recognize LTR's disciples by their slightly naughty sense of humor.
Anyway we are acquainted, just a little bit. Doesn't matter.
