Haridwar Kumbh mela 2010

Postby Siva on Mon Oct 12, 2009 2:09 pm

Haridwar Kumbh mela 2010, is a great Indian festival, where we can see a gathering of so many devotees at one place. Lakhs of people will come daily from different areas to Haridwar and take a holy bath in the river Ganges. This is the opportunity to see the diversity of spirituality in India. This festival will come for every 12 years in Haridwar.

Kumbh mela will be conducted in four diferent places in India. They are
1. Haridwar
2. Prayaga
3. Ujjaini
4. Nashik

I have seen Ujjain kumbhmela. That was a wonderful experience to me. In that occasion i have seen so many devotees of different kinds. We will certainly get inspiration from them. All the sadhus will settle as Akhadas / Akharas. ie. Shakti akhada (Devotees of Shakti), Shaiva Akhada (Devotees of Shiva) etc. Naga sadhus are the attracting persons of the occasion. They will not wear any cloths to cover their body. They will wear Bhasma on their body. I have seen some sadhus who are doing Tapas by standing on only one leg continuously, raising their hands continuously for 3 years, 6 years or 12 years based their capacity.
But we should take care regarding Lodging and boarding. If possible it is better to book the room before going to that place. I suffer for that reason, and spent two day without room. Take care about the food. We should not suffer in health aspect, then only we can enjoy the occasion and get benefits from that.
The Kumbh mela festival is commencing from January 14th 2010, Makara sankranti. Taking holy bath in the river Ganges at that time will surely give results.
