Three Jewels, Northern India, Jivamukti Retreat


This Jivamukti intensive gave a first-hand glimpse of a range of spiritual practices and yogic lineages. From Delhi, we traveled to Rishikesh to attend the International Yoga Festival, involving various lines of Yoga and evening Aarti ceremonies along the River Ganga. We met Radhanath Swami in some caves along the Ganga and had a discussion with him as well there. Our journey continued to Amritsar, where we explored and experienced the Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) and Sikhism. We then moved on to Dharamsala, a base for the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhist refugees and explored the meditation center and volunteer activities there.
