3 days pilgrim to the holy city of Vrindarvan
End your India immersion with a 3 day pilgrim to Vrindarvan. This is a place of pilgrimage for Hindus world wide as it is the birth place of Lord Krishna. Vrindavan is home to over 5000 temples, large and small. Sacred chanting resonates throughout this town, and it is full of color, ritual, sound, and deep spiritual culture. It a place of mystical importance and can be said to be the “Heart Alter” of Bhakti yogis; those who follow the Path Of Devotion. Our stay in Vrindavan will be for four nights. Each day there will be a deeply rejuvenating yoga practice, in order to properly become grounded in India. On our Pilgrimage we will visit the most sacred and purifying river Yamuna, She is considered one of India’s three prominent Sacred Rivers. We will partake in a ritual called Puja: an offering of auspicious items such and flowers, fruits, incense and lamps, accompanied by chanting mantra. This ceremony will uplift the soul and purify the heart. We then will visit some of the oldest temples in the area, experience yogis offering their hearts in adoration to the Deity, sacred forms of the Divine.
While in Vrindavan we will also spend one morning visiting Vrndavan Food for Life. This is an outstanding worldwide charity organization which helps very poor children, particularly girls, get an education so that the cycle of poverty may be broken. This is a great opportunity to be involved in some of the good work that is going on in a country where there is tremendous heart breaking poverty.
Our last adventure in Vrindarvan will take us to the sacred mountain call Govadhana Hill, where 1000 of pilgrims visit monthly, this is a place of great spiritual potency, the energy is surcharged
with prayer and deep focus concentrated on the Divine. The experiences you will be exposed to are not one of a tourist, but a seeker of the Truth. Meeting living yogis who’s minds are fixed on something far greater then the temporal. The impression will lay deep into ones consciousness, and will have the power to transform and awaken Divine love.
