About the pilgrimage
India cannot be known without touching its spiritual culture, which combines Buddhism, Hinduism and even Christianity. Throughout the history, the country has remained tolerant of any path of comprehension of the Divine. The aim of this pilgrimage is to show the spiritual treasures of India, preserved by this land through millennia and conquests.
We will visit places described in the sacred texts of Hinduism – Mahabharata and Puranas. We will visit ancient Hindu temples and witness sacred rituals that are performed in India for more than 5 thousand years. We will see the ashrams of the saints described in the “Autobiography of a Yogi”, we will go to the North, to the Himalayan estate of the Roerich’s, where the Roerich’s teaching of Living Ethics was born. The journey continues to Palampur, the tea capital of Northern India, where the country’s ancient heritage exists side by side with its colonial past. The pilgrimage will end in “little Tibet” – Dharmsala, where we will see the Buddhist abode of modern India.
