Hello lovely readers,
Greetings from Perfect Blenders.
I am writing this blog, to let you’ll know that tomorrow is my train for the world’s largest religious gathering in India, ‘KUMBH MELA’ which is held this year in Prayagraj ( Uttar Pradesh ). Let me give you’ll little information about what is Kumbh Mela. According to Hindu scriptures, it is believed that taking a holy dip in Sangam ( which is a river in Prayagraj ) during Kumbh which is imbued with power, promotes spiritual growth, health, emotional strength and puts you on the path to moksha (liberation). Kumbh Mela is also held in Haridwar (Uttarakhand), Nashik (Maharashtra) and Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh). The Prayagraj Kumbh Mela is highest among all pilgrimages and provides one with the highest virtue. It has references in the Vedas.
The Kumbh Mela is held on a rotation basis every three years in Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh), Haridwar, Nasik and Ujjain. Then there are the Ardha Kumbh Melas held every six years in Prayagraj and Haridwar. The Purna Kumbh or Maha Kumbh is organised only in Prayagraj every 12 years. As per the calendar, the next Maha Kumbh will be held in 2025 in Prayagraj.
Since last kumbh Mela, perfect Blenders are smitten with the whole vibe of it. I could not attend it, but this time I am all set to witnessed the devotion towards the city, the positive vibes which it shares, the trance of the Naga Baba’s and the lot more. Hippie culture is largely spot there. It’s a 55 day long event starting from January 15. This year 150 million people are expected to attend the Mela. We wouldn’t be staying there for long, but I surely be sharing my experiences with you’ll from time to time.
