Varanasi is a spiritual and religious centre. It is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. This is a place where you will experience an unimaginable transformation if you are willing and ready for it. I am here to discover what visiting Varanasi does to you.
The city is filled with old temples. So much so that, when the government recently surveyed temples in Varanasi, they found that people had constructed houses around temples, and when officers entered the temple, they found people living around idols installed hundreds of thousands of years ago.
When you come to places such as Varanasi, apart from the temple visits, you also meditate. This is where everything changes. When you are keen to transcend the familial life and explore the inner truths that life offers you, you will get the guidance you have never received. Meditation happens quickly here. You will hear a guiding voice which says; Hey Sadhak, focus, go deeper. That’s correct, Keep your spine erect, do not let go… and so on.
When you get such guidance, stay on and go deeper. Experience the transformation. At Varanasi, your meditation doesn’t end. You want to sit for longer, which was never possible before. The energies here are simply superb.
I am here at Varanasi conducting a meditation retreat for a select few members of the Agar Meditation Group. I am looking forward to the experience our group members will share. I am sure it will give you goosebumps.
If you plan to visit Varanasi, avoid the rainy season. It gets slushy and dirty. Avoid summer as well because you will fry in the heat. Come after the rains. Focus on meditation more than anything else. That is where the blessings lie. That is where you get all your answers and guidance. You connect to God here. Blessed are those who have received the guidance at Varanasi.
I am keen to know What visiting Varanasi did to you.
