Maha Kumbh Mela 2013 in Allahabad – First Impressions

Today early morning we arrived at the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad. 2013 is an important date. Every 12 years there is a bog shift in the energy, celebrated with a Maha Kumbh Mela – and this is what is happening right now.

We are so happy to be here at this special place at that special time. And we are looking forwards to two groups, who will be joining us in this great experience.

Attached you find some of the pictures we took today, during our first walk through the Kumbh.

Maha Kumbh Mela begins….

I have been looking forward particularly to this Maha Kumbh Mela for more than eight years!

The Kumbh Mela takes place at different places in India alternately but of all places Allahabad is said to be especially sacred. Every 12 years only, the Kumbh Mela takes place there.

To be part of the Maha Kumbh Mela brings us to the very core of the soul. Concepts of spirituality turn upside down and give your soul the possibility to experience, to see wonders for example, to feel trance and to experience deep inner clarity.

And now… the Maha Kumbh Mela-described as the World’s biggest religious gathering- has begun at Allahabad with the Makar Sankranti festival.
