We will come together at Shanti Yoga Ashram for the first day of the festival. This spiritual journey will continue in Kathmandu, where we will spend two days in the enchanting capital city of Nepal. Our festival corresponds with Shiva Ratri – Shiva’s appearance day, in which we will come together to honor Lord Shiva, the first Guru of Yoga by celebrating yoga’s depth and diversity. We will continue in this spirit by visiting the Pashupatinath Temple, considered to be the most powerful and important Shiva temple in existence, lying on the banks of the Bagmati River. We will also visit the Boudhanath Stupa, a symbolic Buddhist site as well as being the largest stupa in Nepal, and the Swayambhunath Stupa, the oldest Buddhist shrine in Kathmandu.
Inside of Kathmandu Valley we will visit Bhaktapur, an ancient Tantric city known for its amazing architecture and spiritual energy. It is home to many temples of cultural significance. There is a large square for our yoga program.
Our pilgrimage will then bring us to Pokhara, which not only offers the holy sites of the Peace Pagoda and the Barahi Durga Temple, but breathtaking views of the Annapurna range and Lake Phewa. It is an ideal place for yoga and meditation surrounded by nature’s beauty.
We will spend one day and night at Chitwan, home of Nepal's first National Park, where you can safari through the jungle and see abundant wilflife. Finally, our journey will bring us to Dev Ghat, the sacred convergence of two rivers, the place where Sita, Rama and Laskshman departed from this world, the birthplace of Veda Vyas, the compiler of the the Vedas. There are many ashrams there and it is the home of many spiritual practitioners to this day, so it is highly charged with spiritual energy.
