Journey to Kumbh Mela

Where everything is purified

Kumbha Mela is one of the most important festivals in Hinduism. Celebrated in a cycle of approximately 12 years at four sacred river-bank sites, it is marked by a ritual dip in the waters. It is believed that waters are turning into pure amrit in particular sacred places during the time of Kumbha Mela, which is computed from the auspicious positions of Sun, Moon and Jupiter. This is why each Kumbha Mela, countless sadhus, yogis, gurus and spiritual seekers travel to those sacred places to purify themselves and benefit from the association of other saintly souls.
Kumbha Mela is the largest religious gathering in the world. Its smaller version is celebrated annually at Prayagraj, where the sacred rivers Ganga, Yamuna and mystical Saraswati merge together, while in full version it is celebrated every 12 years. To travel during such a rare and auspicious time with God-realised master and our Gurudev, Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda, is an experience of a lifetime. During last Kumbha Mela trip Gurudev was honoured with a title of Mahamandaleshwar, which was a historic moment for His mission.
