Where To Begin The Spiritual Tour?
Learn from the ancient wisdom of spiritual practices at the Isha Yoga Foundation. The benefits of yoga are hardly hidden to the world anymore. Yoga is a way of life, a union of the physical body and the mental being to attain the ultimate goal of Nirvana. The practice of yoga, while infused into the Indian way of life, is a philosophy that is widely embraced in the west as well. While there are innumerable centres and institutions teaching the practice of Yoga to travellers, one of the most successful and well known is the Isha Yoga Foundation.
The founder, Sadhguru, designed programs that are aimed at self-realisation under the guidance of a master. Isha Yoga is a modern manifestation of the ancient yogic practices, and how they can interverse with the modern world. Begin your spiritual journey at the Isha Yoga Centre at Coimbatore, a beautiful town in the state of Tamil Nadu. Through meditation, clean eating, and an atmosphere that encourages introspection, the Isha Yoga Centre is the perfect place to be at peace with your inner self and attain self-realisation.
Join a short course, a 2 day program at the Isha ashram, where you’d be staying at an earthy cottage, and be a part of a community of Yogis, or people who practice yoga. The day starts early with meditation at the large Shiva temple, a truly marvelous structure called Dhyanalinga, which is reflective of the calmness that results with yoga. “Dhyana”, is a word for meditation while “Linga” is the symbol for Shiva, and means the form. The main halls which hosts the majestic Dhayanalinga is where the community comes together for meditation and yoga practices. The routine is set throughout the day, where guides and realised leaders take you through the process. The ashram is a quiet hideaway, about 20 kilometres from the city of Coimbatore, and gives you a chance to reclaim your mind and soul. Two days at the centre will leave you mentally at peace, and interested in the simplicity of life that Isha yoga offers. It is a philosophy worth exploring, and you will leave with a sense of self awareness for sure.

Head To Prayagraj For The Ardh Kumbh Mela 2019
After a quiet time at the Isha Yoga Centre, head for an event diametrically opposite that! The Prayagraj Kumbh Mela 2019, the recently changed name for the Allahbad Kumbh Mela. It is one of the world’s largest congregations of a religious community, where millions proceed to the Ganga river to pay their respects. This auspicious occasion is an overwhelming declaration of spiritual practices and a real once-in-a-lifetime experience. This holy pilgrimage welcomes Hindus of from all walks of life to take a tip in the river of Ganga, to purify their sins.
Apart from the religious significance of the Kumbh, this mind-boggling pilgrimage is a festival, complete with feasts, religious lectures, prayer and community chants. This mass event is a periodic marvel, and it is just something one has to experience to really recall.
Stay at the Sangam Nivas Camp at Allahabad or Prayagraj, which is a luxury camp overlooking the entire Kumbh Mela, and yet stay at a safe distance from the overwhelming commotion of the fair. Be greeted with the premium luxury tents, which are equipped with all the basic facilities and provide a comfortable accommodation for the travellers. The Kumbh Mela 2019 experiences include Satvik meals, morning yoga and meditation, interaction with the sadhus and seers, boat ride to the Sangam (where the rivers Ganga and Yamuna meet), and the some truly spectacular panoramic views of the Kumbh proceedings. This is perhaps the best way to immerse yourself in this spiritual experience, without facings the risks that come when crowds as large as this are involved. As millions of pilgrims make way to the Kumbh, you can really understand the vibe behind the grandness and purity of this event.
This itinerary will give you a chance to dip yourself, pun intended, into some of India’s most value and oldest religious practices. Yoga and the Kumbh Mela 2019 signify the diversity in which religious wisdom is practiced, but you will also understand that it is all ultimately to attain self-realisation and inner peace. In travelling to these places, you may be able to find your own deeper, truer self. Are you ready to embark upon the journey?
