Days 2 to 4
Delhi, Haridwar and Naturoville
In the morning, we will proceed to board the train to Haridwar. Upon arrival at the Haridwar Railway Station, we will be picked up and transferred to Naturoville.
Naturoville presents a majestic Vedic retreat that is perched on the foothills of the Himalayas, and is within striking distance from the holy city of Haridwar. The retreat is inspired by ancient wisdom of Rishi that dates back to 1700-1100 BC (Vedic period). It was passed on verbally during that period from one generation to another. The strict Guru-Shisya Parampara or Teacher Disciple Tradition is also instrumental in preserving this through time.
The pillar of Rishi’s wisdom is Guru Shisya Parampara. Selected laudable disciples were made privy to the wisdom. In India, many still believe that divine souls search for and try to gain access to this wisdom in accordance with the local aphorism “When the student is ready the teacher will appear”.
During the 3 nights in the resort, we will participate in scheduled morning and evening yoga workshops and meditation classes. While in here, we can take advantage of the following facilities: fitness and wellness gym, swimming pool, steam and sauna. There are also exhilarating hiking trips in the Himalayan foothill that we can join. An organized private trip will take us to Aarti at Rishikesh ghats in one of the evenings.
About Ganga Aarti:
“Aarti” is a Hindi ritual that depicts offering of prayers to God (Almighty). This is usually carried out during special and revered occasions. Gang Aarti is a ceremonial performed every sunset for an hour and a half, before a breathtaking backdrop of the holy Ganga River (Ganges River). It starts with a holy fire ceremony known as Yagna. The Guru or Master with the devotees will light small lamps and sing welcoming prayers to thank River Ganga for being the ultimate source of life and prosperity of the region.
