    When we don't know something, instead of trying to speculate the solution on our own, the best way is to approach elders/spiritual master, seek for guidance and simply follow their instructions.

    "You know there is some pilgrim place where there are small wells you know, not very deep, in the rock of the river. I forgot where we saw. 10 - 12 wells you know. So, the arrangement was natural arrangement because of the water you know. In the rainy season, there is the water all around, they have cut the stone, so you enter one well and then you have to go to the next well. And again, you have to go to the next well and again go to the next. There were nearly 10 – 12 wells.
