Description

 India is considered the epicentre for spiritual awakening and religion. The land of the nature-revering Hindush River people soon gave birth to strong religions like Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. It welcomed from its shores Christianity, Islam, and Zoroastrianism. And they say that the number of named Hindu demi-gods might outnumber the number of practicing Hindus! At the same time, beyond and before religion, India was the land of spirituality. It still holds a mystic magnetic effect on seekers of the truth, who recognise the limitations of scientific research and are looking for the answer to that yogic question: WHO AM I? Put on your Kurta and get on the Spirituality and Religion. 

Sample Program

›Start with meditation at the Ashram of Aurobindo

›Have breakfast in a snake temple, and understand the significance of snake worship among Hindus

›Visit St Mary's church and understand the practices of local Christians and their faith in Mother Mary's healing powers. Capture people being true and sincere to not just their own religion, but also offering their humility and faith to others just as well. Capture folded hands, trances, rituals

›Lunch in a Muslim home, with a family that talks to you about the history and place of Islam in Bangalore / India.

›Chai with a Parsi family, and understand fire worshippers, the Zoroastrians who brought the religion to India from Persia.

›Walk through the Hindu cemetery and understand the Hindu sub-sect Lingayat, who don't burn, but bury their dead... in sitting posture, with the head above the ground!
