Ganganath and Tara Leela in Naggar, Kullu Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India

JOIN GANGA & TARA ON A PILGRIMAGE
TO SACRED PLACES IN INDIA

SOUTH INDIA:       NOVEMBER and DECEMBER 2015,  JANUARY and FEBRUARY  2016

We invite you to come with us on a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Mother India. These are not just vacations. They are spiritual pilgrimages, adventures of the soul, to places of power, where you may have new insights into who you really are and what is really important in your life. For thousands of years, great saints have lived in India and performed powerful spiritual practices there. The very earth has been sanctified by their presence. A spiritual pilgrimage to India expands your awareness of life on planet Earth and the cosmos. It allows you to get out of the box of your daily patterns and conceptual system. It frees you to see the world with new eyes.

During the nearly seven years that we’ve lived in India, we’ve had many beautiful experiences, seen amazing sites, visited many sacred temples, met beautiful saints and had many profound inner experiences. While we traveled throughout India having these memorable experiences, we thought of our many friends who haven’t yet experienced the wonders of India. It occurred to us that we were having these life-changing experiences so that we could share them with others. We want to share these with you.

There are amazingly powerful places in nature, like rivers, mountains, caves and forests, where ancient Rishis lived and meditated. Many of these ancient sages are said to be immortal and still exist in these places blessing people who come there. There are also great living Siddha Saints from whom you can receive powerful blessings that will clear obstacles to your spiritual development and propel you to quickly achieve your goals in life.
