SOUTH ASIA - India & Sri Lanka
India's languages, religions, dance, music, architecture, food, customs differ from place to place within the country. Each state of India, indeed each village, lends a little of its unique culture to how a festival is celebrated, creating almost endless variations. Festivals are perhaps more impressive and varied in Hinduism than in any other religion. The devout Hindu knows these are times of profound mysticism, when God and the Gods touch our world, revitalize our souls, lighten karmas and bless our families. Before each celebration, vows are taken, scriptures are studied, pilgrimages are trodden and fasts observed in preparation; all individual acts of intimate devotion that bring the devotee closer to the Gods and keep him on the path to his inmost Self. As each festival begins, solitary adoration becomes a collective ritual, with millions of people taking their places in an ad-hoc choreography. Tradition is followed but the result is never the same; every festival is special and unforgettable in its own way. Be a part of this celebration!

....and by the way, do write us few sentences about you! Because NAMASTE could be just a casual or formal greeting, a cultural convention or an act of worship. However, there is much more to it than meets the eye. The real meeting between people is the meeting of their minds. When we greet one another with namaste, it means, ‘may our minds meet’, indicated by the folded palms placed before the chest. The bowing down of the head is a gracious form of extending friendship in love, respect and humility. We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts with you!
