Every year, since 1991, we have organised a spiritual tour around India and the Himalayas.
It's great fun and full of challenge and adventure - a perfect opportunity for inner growth.
The tour attracts participants from all the world. It is for margiis from ages 18-38, others youg at heart and reasonably fit are also welcome.
It is specifically for those who have learned Ananda Marga meditation, so that we can all be in the same flow.
If you have not yet learned meditation, it is not too late! Just contact me to find your nearest teacher and learn meditation free of charge.
Karun, I really am so glad that I joined the tour "coz" I feel my mind has become more expanded. Margii's here have asked me how it was and I said "It is for those looking for physical, mental and spiritual challenge". I hope more margii's will join your tour every year, for their own progress
Poem by Jayagiita, Australia
New to Ananda Marga,
Initiated along the way,
I joined a group of Margi’s
Surrended come what may.
They’d been traveling in India
Together for quite awhile
And they welcomed me like family
Open hearted, with a smile
As I left with namaskar
Joyful despite a tear
I gratefully thanked whoever it was
Who had quietly guided me here.
In the silence of the long flight home I am reflecting on the last 7 weeks. It was such an interesting trip, and so intense, an outer and inner journey, that it might take some time to digest all that has happened: the family feeling with the people in the group, who were complete strangers to me only weeks earlier, the strange familiarity of the country that I visited for the first time (this lifetime...), the highly vibrated places of Ananda Marga history that we visited, so full of stories, and countless meditations in jagrtis, on riverside rocks and in overcrowded trains. Continuous movement, external and internal. Things will never seem the same again. [and she is coming again, as a guide this time :-) ]
Surrender was the word. Love, love, love, love. That's all there is. I see things and my life so different and I feel Baba so close.
Prema Sa’gar, from London Region, tells the tale
of his recent (2000), first visit to India…
So, this is India. Land of tablas, temples, dance and devotees... From Delhi airport, we were taken on a mad taxi drive to the city centre. Here, the rickshaws rule. They are strange beings: basically a piece of black tarpaulin, shaped into a cabin and hung over a 3-wheeled motorcycle, belching fumes to make the Space Shuttle’s exhaust seem like a breath of fresh air. The drive was comparable to a theme ride at Disneyland, where obstacles come terrifyingly in front of the wheels, only to shift at the last moment. At Disneyland, however, you know that you’re safe; but then again, a good rickshaw ride will only cost you 20 rupees (30 pence).
O human beings! You are fortunate. The clarion call of the Universal has reached you. That very call is vibrating is every cell of your body. Will you now lie inert in the corner of your house? Will you now waste your time by clutching ancient skeletons to your breast and moaning over them? The Supreme Being is calling you in the roar of the ocean, in the thunder of the clouds, in the speed of the lightning, in the meteor's flaming fires. Nothing will come of remaining idle. Get up and awaken the clouded chivalry of your dormant youth. The path may not be strewn with flowers.... An inferiority complex may seek to hold back your every advancing footstep, but even then you have to proceed onward, tearing the shroud of darkness. You will soon end the thick darkness of despair on the way to the attainment of the Supreme State, and advance onwards in the swift - moving chariot, radiant with the suns brilliance. "
