During this deeply spiritual three day visit to the ancient city of Varanasi, India, pilgrims will be able to imbibe the root cultural heritage of authentic Sanskrit-based tradition (Sanskriti). Pilgrims will get to listen to synchronized sublime chanting of esoteric branches of the Veda at the main campus of Vedanidhi. Pilgrims will also experience contemplative walks along the ghats of the river Ganga, boat rides and observe the dusk time vespers offered to Ganga. The history and spiritual depth of Varanasi will be revealed through visits to temples and other sacred sites. Pilgrims will visit four properties associated with Vedanidhi that are run by the monks of our monastic council. Fellowships with monks and sharing of reading materials from old libraries and antiquarian book stores will reveal the continuity of the Sanskrit manuscripts and texts relevant to a seeker or an aspirant.
