Meditation Retreat, Rishikesh

A pilgrimage within

Nestled in the foothills of the mountain ranges, the winter month of December is the time for the Meditation Retreat held in the heart of the Himalayas, the beautiful and serene, Rishikesh. The five day retreat has much to offer to the one who is a recipient. This venerated land of sages and saints is brimming with such vibrant energy that a seeker is only to attune himself to be able to reach an exalted state of bliss. The uniqueness of this retreat is undoubtedly the meditation sessions held in the lap of the mountains, paralleled with the Masters expositions charged with bountiful love; indeed an opportunity not to be missed.
