What an amazing energy there must be with such a huge gathering of many who are on the path of liberation....
Who has been to a Kumbh Mela?.... What was it like for you?

Yes, I have been to numerous Kumbha Melas, and I must say that participating in the event has changed my life!

Namaste Sarabhanga Giri,
Thanks for sharing... nice to see photos too. How long have you been a sadhu?
I find it amazing how some in this birth strongly want liberation and some want it a little ( I think it's either all or nothing.. .can't let go of ego identification partly), and some have no idea, no interest.
It's such a mystery....another "unknown" and I feel to keep it that way. I know people say it's past karma, past work in other lifetimes, but there is no memory of that (just crying sometimes when I see footage of India, and have a strong connection with teachings of Advaita, Yoga and Buddhism)...The desire for liberation just is.
I love traveling through your web site... thank-you Sarabhanga giri.

My saMskAra was by the kshipranadI, at the Avantika (Ujjain) mela in 2004.

[Thanks to Irene for the photographs :)]

A sword through the private parts yet still having fun, now that to me is Sadhana! :)
Only in India and only a shiv devotee...
