TO KUMBH MELA IN ALLAHABAD, INDIA
From time immemorial to the present day, devotees
have gathered with unwavering faith to receive the
blessings of holy saints and bathe in the holiest of holy
bathing spots in India. As tour guide for sacred tours to
India, I invite you to the upcoming Kumbh Mela,which will
take place in January, 2007 in Allahabad,India.
Wave upon wave of bliss. The darshan --the blessings--of
all the magnificent saints and yogis who rarely come out
of their Himalayan caves in order to bless thepeople.
This is the Kumbh Mela ("the festival of the potof nectar
- amrit kalash - of immortality"). A once in a lifetime,
To watch the Kumbh Mela processions is to witness the
march of the ages. As the holy saints pass by on various
and sundry conveyances -- elephants, horses,
palanquins, chariots, cars, and camels -- they are
continually transmitting waves of powerful shakti
(energy) to all the people who witness this awe-
inspiring and most auspicious event. Devotees are
overwhelmed by the palpable spiritual vibrations that
pervade the entire atmosphere.
