What is the nature of our spiritual experience when we are living enlightened life on earth?
The very foundation of my conception of life, the reality in which I lived, was shaken at its root. I was forced by circumstances to find a new identity within myself and adopt a completely new value system. My western values were not enough to deal with the profundity of the Kumbh Mela. What ensued was an unforgettable experience and a true understanding of the Kumbh Mela. I began to understand why millions of people attend the Kumbh Mela and I began to imbibe an inkling of their faith. Jack Hebner

Millions make the pilgrimage with them in order to receive the blessings of these holy beings and taste divine life.
