Bhakti Yoga India Tour and Kirtan Camp

Bhakti yoga or the yoga of devotion is expressed everywhere in the land of Braj. This famous pilgrimage region located 150 kilometers south of New Delhi, is the land of divine love. Thousands from India and around the world visit this region every year and it is considered one of the holiest places of India.

A spiritual yatra or pilgrimage of Braj traditionally takes place in the fall. This is the best time to visit the thousands of shrines and other religious monuments in the area.

Barsana, one of the most important ares in this district from a spiritual point of view, is the birthplace of Shri Radha, as described in Vaishnava scriptures. The village’s most prominent feature is a famous temple built on a small hill in the late 18th century. The culture of the area is replete with numerous events related to Radha and Krishna.

Holy sites abound everywhere. Even the hill upon which the Barsana temple is located is itslef part of a small ridge composed of four hills. There are beautiful pathways adjoining all the areas, which have numerous important shrines and monuments related to Radha Krishna, including, temples, ponds and natural places.

Staying in ashram accommodations within walking distance of such places offers an opportunity for an authentic experience of spiritual immersion, yet it also provides all the basic amenities for a comfortable stay.

This base is a perfect combination of atmosphere and environment for exploration of bhakti yoga. Beginning classes on the basics of the Indian devotional music and classes to learn to play the harmonium and Indian drum (dholak) are an excellent introduction to kirtan and devotional songs. Daily yoga and philosophy classes round out the curriculum and give participants the deepest insight into the land, culture and spiritual wisdom of Braj.
