REGARDED BY MANY HISTORIANS as the “oldest living civilization of Earth”, the Indian practice dates back to 8000 BC, and has constantly been noted since the time of the Vedas. Apart from having nearly all the world’s great religions represented here, India is also the birth place of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. India is a land of holy saints, devotees, pilgrims and stern religious following. Several elements of India’s diverse culture, its religions, yoga, and Indian cuisine, have had a profound impact across the world. India will surely touch your soul in a spiritual way that is not religious in the traditional sense, but in a way that will involve your mind, your body and your spirit, making you feel a connection within yourself, that will effortlessly come to recognise all the sounds and sights and emotions all around you in this ancient, modern, vibrant land. The peoples of the Indian sub-continent bring spirituality and ritual to every moment of their day, waking, eating, working and entertainment. Everything is connected and everything has purpose.
