Yoga and Meditation gave us valuable, practical instructions for the body, breath, concentration, relaxation and meditation.

Ayurveda The meaning of ‘Ayur’ is life, and ‘Veda’ means knowledge, so Ayurveda means ‘knowledge of the science of life’. In this retreat we offers you the best of Ayurvedic treatments and medicinal massages. Our special health and beauty care packages are specifically designed to treat modern day maladies like looking young, stress, respiratory problems, eye ailments and skin diseases.

Astrology For centuries, humans have looked to the heavens for guidance. Astrology is, put simply, the study of the correlation between the astronomical positions of the planets and events on earth. We believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, although many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large role in any individual’s life. We feel that Astrology can be used as a powerful and fun tool for understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Healthy Food Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods that give you the nutrients you need to maintain your health, feel good, and have energy. These nutrients include protein, carbohydrates, fat, water, vitamins, and minerals. Nutrition is important for everyone. When combined with being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight, eating well is an excellent way to help your body stay strong and healthy.

This Yoga Retreat will give you a holistic effect and bring body, mind, consciousness and soul into balance. In this way this retreat assists you in coping with everyday demands, problems and worries. This retreat helps to develop a greater understanding of our self, the purpose of life and our relationship to God. On the spiritual path, this retreat leads us to supreme knowledge and eternal bliss in the union of the individual Self with the universal Self. Yoga & Meditation is that supreme, cosmic principle. It is the light of life, the universal creative consciousness that is always awake and never sleeps; that always was, always is, and always will be.

To live in harmony with oneself and the environment is the wish of every human. However, in modern times greater physical and emotional demands are constantly placed upon many areas of life. The result: more and more people suffer from physical and mental tension such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, and there is an imbalance in physical activity and proper exercise. This is why methods and techniques for the attainment and improvement of health, as well as physical, mental and spiritual harmony, are of great importance, and it is exactly in this respect that “Yoga in Daily Life” comprehensively offers an aid to help one’s self.

Quote by Sri Aurobindo

 

According to Sri Aurobindo “all life is Yoga.” In the Integral Yoga, the integral life down to the smallest detail has to be divinised: an inner illumination that does not change the outer life leaves the world as it is. The object of our Yoga is self-perfection and world-perfec­tion.

Vedanta: is derived from two words, veda – knowledge and anta – end. Vedanta therefore means the culmination of knowledge. It is the ancient Indian philosophy which answers the fundamental questions of life. Vedanta designs the pursuit of happiness through logical and systematic exposition of eternal truths. Founded on no individual, it is a system of knowledge discovered by pre-eminent seekers of Truth. The knowledge promotes material and spiritual well-being. Combines dynamic action with mental peace. It instills the higher values of service to provide prosperity and peace to the community. Above all, its philosophy leads one to the ultimate goal of self-realisation.

Looking forward to welcoming you. Stay blessed…

HOTEL RATING:3 – 4 star & heritage hotels

TOUR GUIDE: Yes – escorted by a tour guide

MEALS: Breakfast: 7, Dinner: 2

VISITING: Delhi, Old Delhi, Jaipur, Bharatpur, Agra

Day 1- Delhi

Welcome to India and the start of your holiday! Upon arrival in Delhi an included transfer will take you to your hotel. Spend the rest of the afternoon and evening at your own leisure. Overnight: Delhi

Day 2- Old & New Delhi

This morning, our Welcome Meeting takes place. We then enjoy a full day sightseeing tour of Old and New Delhi, taking in the Jama Masjid – India’s oldest and largest mosque and Raj Ghat – the site of Gandhi’s cremation in Old Delhi, and the Rajpath and India Gate in New Delhi. Tonight, we enjoy a Namaste Dinner at a restaurant specialising in Indian cuisine. Overnight: Delhi  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3- Jaipur – the Pink City!

Delhi – Jaipur. Today we drive to Jaipur. Affectionately known as the Pink City because Maharaja Ram Singh had the Old City painted a welcoming pink in 1876 to herald a visit by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), it is also the bustling capital of the state of Rajasthan. This afternoon we enjoy a tour of the City Palace and Jantar Mantar – an ancient yet cleverly designed space observatory. Watch out for snake charmers along the way. Overnight: Jaipur  |  Breakfast

Day 4- The lofty Amber Fort

Early-risers can opt for a morning hot air balloon ride over Jaipur, and sail over hilltop forts, regal palaces, sleepy villages, and stone carved temples. Then we travel beyond Jaipur to the stunning 16th century Amber Fort – a sprawling Rajput construction, perched on a hillside overlooks the dusty plains below. Before returning to Jaipur we stop at a cotton weaving house to see a demonstration of fabric dyeing and block printing. Overnight: Jaipur  |  Breakfast

Day 5 India celebrates Holi

Jaipur – Bharatpur. Friday 02 March 2018. It’s an early start today as the festivities of Holi bring thousands of people out onto the streets in a dazzling display of colour and good cheer. Celebrated every year in February or March, the ancient Hindu festival of Holi originated as a celebration of the end of winter and beginning of spring in honour of Prahlada, who was protected from the flames by Vishnu when he was tricked to his near death by his father King Hiranyakashipu.

Today Holi is a time when Indians across the nation gather together with family, friends and neighbours to throw powder bombs, fire water pistols and splash coloured water as they run through the streets. Shops and businesses close down for the day, and on the eve of the celebrations a bonfire is held to remember the story of Prahlada and Vishnu. While this is the most believed story, the myths and legends that surround Holi differ around the country, but the basic principle remains the same. Holi is meant to symbolise the triumph of good over evil, the importance of love and of happiness, and supports the formation of new friendships.

Leaving our hotel, we’ll drive to Bharatpur. Upon arrival, we can watch from a safe distance or get involved with the Holi celebrations taking place on the hotel lawn. For those wanting to get involved we’ll be providing white kurta pyjamas for you to wear and organic colours for you to throw. In this game of cat and mouse, stealth and the art of surprise will serve you well. After a bombardment of powder bombs and shower of water in every imaginable colour, there is time for lunch before we head off to Keoladeo Ghana National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where we’ll enjoy a leisurely bicycle rickshaw ride through the park. Overnight: Bharatpur  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6- Taj Mahal

Bharatpur – Agra. En route to Agra, we visit Fatehpur Sikri, former imperial capital of the great Mughal emperor Akbar. Built between 1569 and 1585, it has been deserted for more than four centuries, by all accounts abandoned in 1600 due to a meagre supply of water. In Agra, we visit the impressive Agra Fort before touring the legendary Taj Mahal. Built by Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz, who tragically died in childbirth in 1631, the Taj Mahal is described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love and remains one of India’s most enduring symbols. Overnight: Agra  |  Breakfast

Days 7-8 Onward to Delhi

Agra – Delhi. After breakfast, we return to Delhi, the latter part of the afternoon is free for you to relax or independently explore more of Delhi. Opt for a meal in the heart of the city or simply relax and chat with group members at the hotel. The following day, Monday 5 March 2018, our tour concludes after breakfast. Goodbye India!

A Unique, Quaint and Peculiar Indian Rabari community for You, Foreign TV Channels and Media….

Goingindiaa is always working very hard to show unique, quaint and peculiar people, culture, traditions, ritual and lifestyle etc to the world. This time we are inviting you, foreign TV channels and other media to come down India for a unique and fantastic shoot about Indian Rabari Community. This rehabilitation society has not been able to change the time since the human settlement. Rebari is spread across the whole of India! Especially in North, Pashwim and Central India! But since the beginning of the main occupation of animal husbandry and a nomadic life (illusory).

Places to be cover during shoot:    Poni ki Bagli, Makroda, Sirohi, Viroli & Mundara Mata Ji.

During my recent trip to Rajasthan, I found this interesting community who :

  • Travel in group and take their animals (camel, cows, goat and sheep) with them.
  • They travel 50 to 80 Km per day during summer time and cover 3000-4000 Km.
  • How they survive and arrange their food during travel, this will be very interesting to find out.

I am very keen to show this very interesting, fantastic and unique rich and old culture to the world. This caste is innocent and the habitation of the god dwells in it, or as a descendant of God, it is also known as Devi’s name!

They have a caste council called Nyat that controls matters related to their community. The Rabari social organization is characterized by the clan system, locally called Ataks. In Rajasthan the Rabari wear colourful dresses, while the Gujarati Rabari prefers white garments. They are good at the traditional art of cloth embroidery. They marry within their community. The Rabari tend sheep, goats and camels. Most of the Rabari are vegetarian while some are non-vegetarian; their everyday diet consists of homemade bread of millet or wheat and jowar. Child marriage is common; however adult marriages are also performed through negotiation. Remarriage is permitted for both the widow and widower. They maintain only putative kinship with others. The Rabari live in joint families. Children are also engaged in their primary occupation. The dead are cremated.

It was written in Bombay in 1901 that the “Bombay Gazetteer” has found that the physical strength of the Rebario seems to be possible that they may also be “Persian” descendants, and they have come from Persia to India, because the Rebearium is named as a ‘fire’! And the Persians are worshipers of ‘Fire-fire’!

City of World’s largest Banyan tree and City of Joy

If you want to have or give a true and unique experiences of India to your clients. Please travel with us, goingindiaa (goingindia5@gmail.com) . Our local expert team is continuously working hard to show you & your clients – uniqueness of destinations. This time we are happy to tell you about Kolkata’s uniqueness. If you want to visit a city with a soul & Joy, come to Calcutta with us.

Kolkata is a city of:

World’s largest Banyan tree: An enormous banyan tree whose circumference is more than 330 meters! The Great Banyan tree is over 250 years old; the area occupied by the tree is about 18,918 square metres. The present crown of the tree has a circumference of 486 m. and the highest branch rises to 940.5 m; it has at present 3772 aerial roots reaching down to the ground as a prop root.

City of Joy: For the people of the world, Kolkata had been nicknamed as ‘the city of joy’ after the infamous novel by Dominique Lappierre in1985. But for every Bengali and the inhabitants of Kolkata, it has been thus for innumerable decades. Fabricated by art, culture, and history, beauty runs in Kolkata’s lanes. Being a metropolitan city now, pace is its new ornament. A warm and welcoming city, it thrills the outsiders at first and then seems to become a part of their soul. It can thus be said that ‘you may be taken out of Kolkata but Kolkata can’t be taken out of you!’

Hand-pulled rickshaws: You might term this one as a pro or a con; nevertheless, it’s quite true that Kolkata is the only city in India with hand-pulled rickshaws.

Polo Club and ground: Calcutta might not have been the city of princes, but the Calcutta Polo Club is the oldest one in the world! The Royal Calcutta Gold Club is the first golf club ever, outside the United Kingdom.

The Howrah Bridge: Seems to be the identity of the city—but did you know that it’s the one of the largest cantilever bridges in the world, and the largest (and perhaps the only) one in the country?

Book Lover’s paradise: Kolkata is a book lover’s paradise. In fact, College Street is widely referred to as the second largest second-hand book market in the world where, if you search properly, you’ll be able to find the first edition of even the rarest of the rare books! Regarding College Street, there’s a saying that if you didn’t find a book in College Street, that book probably have never existed!

I have just completed my trip to Kutch area of Gujarat. I am happy to write about this :

Kutch People:District is inhabited by various groups and communities. One can findvarious nomadic, semi nomadic and artisan groups living in Kutch. Gujarati Ahirs comprise a comparatively large group in Kutch.

Effective houses in Earthquake:Due to the type of collapse, these houses are quite safe. The Bhonga is a traditional construction type in the Kutch district of the Gujarat state in India, which has a very high earthquake risk. A Bhonga consists of a single cylindrically shaped room.• The Bhonga has a conical roof supported by cylindrical walls. Bhonga construction has existed for several hundred years. This type of house is quite durable and appropriate for prevalent desert condition.

I am also working on a mission: Make the World Healthy – through Yoga and Meditation. I am offering 03 nights with meals complimentary to my all esteemed guest. Please be the part of this noble cause and help to make world healthy by passing this information to your friends, relatives and trade colleagues.
