Journey to the Source, India
With Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar

August 5(6)-19,2017

Dear Students and Friends,

Many have heard of our extraordinary Journey to the Source, a special  summer trip to all things India, and especially to visit and take the blessings of the great spiritual being, Swamiji, who has been an inspiration to all who avail of the rare opportunity to visit him. Together with his sister, Mataji, we may receive unparalleled spiritual inspiration.


Swamiji, now 95 years of age, has offered us three evenings of darshan (spiritual company) in Mysore, South India. Of course it will be a sheer delight to have  darshan  with Mataji as well.
To schedule this visit to India, at one of its most popular seasons, we need to hear of your interest by Wednesday May 31.
Here is the initial itinerary, many more extraordinary experiences are to follow:
August 6:    Arrive in New  Delhi  on the 6th  and rest overnight  at Aurobindo ashram .
August 7:    Late afternoon fly to Jammu Kashmir to have darshan of a famous  ancient temple of the goddess Vishno Devi on the 8th. 
There are several ways to approach this goddess . The most interesting is to crawl through a cave tunnel, replicating an experience of the birth canal and exiting reborn. Others may elect to just walk around the cave and then go in (through a conventional door entry).
We will stay in a house boat on Srinagar's famous Dal Lake for two days.
Our explorations will include beautiful Kashmir's Nishat  garden, the Kashmiri Shaivism Ashram, an old Tomb of Christ and a Sufi Dargah (tomb of a great Sufi saint of the 14th century).
Upon arrival in Mumbai on August 11th, we join a five-day workshop with Sri Shyamji at a growth center. Our travels in Mumbai include a visit to the ancient Elephanta caves. 
Here, Sri Shyamji will chant in front of a unique Trimurti, a three-headed Shiva, a rare sound
Finally, a visit to Mysore to be with Swamiji on August 16. We will stay at the world famous Indus Valley Ayurvedic Center, rejuvenating with organic meals in a relaxing compound of cottages and a pool. Travelers may explore the historic city of Mysore with its exquisite palaces.
On the mid  night of  August 19th the pilgrimage will conclude in Bangalore.
Participants will take away their unique, enlightening experiences.
