Religion & Traditions

Learn about Hinduism, one of the oldest world religions, which traces its history back almost 6000 years to the Indus Valley civilization or witness the teachings of its more recent 15th century offshoot, Sikhism. Most Indian religions believe that our purpose in life is to realize that we are part of God (Universal Energy), so that we can leave this plane of existence and rejoin God, thus achieving inner peace. Don’t be surprised if you spot a nude monk walking down the street with sandalwood powder smeared on his head—he might be a Jain monk. Learn about Jainism and its mythological origins. Buddhism, one of the world's major religions, originated in India, from where it spread far and wide and continues to do so. Holy sites abound on the subcontinent and we can build an itinerary based on a number of places of pilgrimage or concentrate on a single region or religion. Travel the footsteps of the Buddha; attend an 11 day Vipassana camp; take a dip in the Ganges in the holy city of Varanasi; experience the sublime at the Golden Temple; admire the architecture of the Jain temples in Ranakpur; gain knowledge from a master in a private session on a sunrise boat cruise... your preference is our guide. Let us put together an enriching experience for you!
