Spirit of Moksha is a self explanatory journey to explore various aspects of largest human gathering on earth i.e Kumbh Mela, 2010, Haridwar. What is this sacred belief and what drives millions of people across the world believe in such a time immemorial event? The relevance of this largest religious festival on earth has stood the test of time and has always remained contemporary.
Here is list of participating akharas. This is official list published by kumbh mela administration.
Most significant days during the Kumbh Festival,
Makar Sankranti , Paush Purnima, Mauni Amavasya Snan , Basant Panchami Snan , Rath Saptami Snan , Bhishma Ekadasi Snan
A huge temporary city is created at the site of the festival for the millions of pilgrims that arrive for the most auspicious bathing days. Kumbh Mela is like a Yogi Convention, where yogis, sadhus (saints), holy people and pilgrims come from all over India.
Visiting the Kumbh Mela to take a dip in the holy waters and cleaning the sins committed in a lifetime is a very superficial motive to attend the Kumbh Mela. The Kumbh festival is a life changing experience where a person can fill the spiritual void he or she experiences in the humdrum of busy urban life. Kumbh Mela is a platform where ordinary men can interact with saints and priests and imbibe the knowledge possed by the latter.
Naga Sadhus are a particular group of Shaivite saints who reside in the Himalayan Caves and come to visit the civilization only during the Kumbh Mela. This is the only event when these ascetic saints can be seen amongst the general Indian population.
