Rejuvenating your mind and spirit is very necessary once in a while during a life time. Today, in the professional work environment of cut throat competition it is very necessary to take a break and seek solace. Such holiday packages will help you maintain the right path which will not let you deviate from the path of ethics and honesty. Today, lot of individuals are running around to satisfy their material urge that will never be satisfied. You come to terms with the facts and truth of life, spiritual holiday is a must. Spiritual upliftment is not based on any particular destination but your interpretation of life without disturbance. Say, in my visit to the Pyramids or Abu salem, it is very easy to come to terms with the truth that however, wealth you collect, it doesn’t go with you to eternity. What carries on even after your death is your legacy like the Pharaohs, who are still remembers even after thousands of years after their entire civilization has been wiped away. India is one place to attain spiritual upliftment because of so many philosophies exciting in one place. Some of the most known and sought after places of visit in India for spiritual upliftment is provided below:
Varanasi: This is known to be the oldest city of the world. Formerly known as Benaras, this city is situated on the banks of river Ganga and is known to be the spiritual capital of India. This place is not just sacred to the Hindus, but also to the Buddhists and Jains. The place has been mentioned in many religious books of the Hindus. It is regarded as one of seven holy cities which can provide Moksha (liberation) from the circle of life after death. The holy city of Varanasi will definitely bring you face to face with the balance of life and death. There are both economy and luxurious places of accommodation in Varanasi, but “Palace on the Ganges “and “Welcome Hotel Jukaso Ganges” needs a special mentioning.
Rishikesh: Situated in an amazing location, apt location for deep meditation and solace is Rishikesh. It is also one of the holiest places in India and known for many Ashrams who practise and teach Yoga. The Eastern Philosophy in Rihikesh had helped the likes of George Harrison and Paul McCartney quit drugs and follow a sacred path that resulted in famous numbers like “within you without you”, “on you all” and “the art of dying”. Couple of Hotels that I would like to mention are “EllBee Ganga View” and “Aloha on the Ganges”.
Pondicherry: The city of Pondicherry or simply Pondi has been attracting tourists in the search of spiritual development. The spiritual attraction towards Pondi enhances because of its quiet and calm ambience. Matri Mandir in Pondicherry is an awe inspiring meditation hall along with the Aurobindo Ashram. Every year International Yoga festival is held here. I will recommend a couple of days stay in “Bonjour Bonheur ocean Spray” or the “Nalla Eco Beach Resort”
Such a short holiday package will not be hefty on your pocket. It is a much needed break to lead a life of the present. Even the noted celebrities like Sharon Stone, Richard Gere, Demi Moore, Matt Damon among many others have visited India in search of spiritual upliftment. Never mind even if you cannot get a cheapest airline tickets to India, the money and time you invest in the quest for spiritual freedom will never go waste.
