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

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.

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.
