Rishikesh (November 11-14)-has spectacular view of jungle-clad hills. Rishikesh has also confluence of River Ganges and Chandrabhaga. The glorious attraction of Rishikesh is none other than the great river of Ma Ganga herself, running rapidly throughout the city. In the ancient time and still so many yogis, rishis, sages and sannyasis attracted to Rishikesh to practice yoga in this peaceful location. Since then, Rishikesh has known as an abode of sages. Rishikesh is a holy town with so many Ashrams and it is famous for the yoga world wide. Rishikesh is now world famous as a Yoga Capital of the world.
Amritsar (November 14-16) - Linked with the history of Sikhism, Amritsar is amongst the most revered sites of the world. It was founded as recently as the 16th century. Its name is a derivative of the Amrit Sarovar (pool of nectar) amidst which stands the Golden Temple, the most sacred of Sikh shrines. Accounts suggest that Guru Amardas purchased the land from Emperor Akbar and decided to build a tank at the site. Following his death, it was completed by Guru Ramdas and also came to be known as ChakRamdas or Guru kaChak. Some of the oldest markets in Amritsar, notably Guru ka Bazaar, date back to his time. The construction of the Golden Temple was initiated by Guru Arjan Dev while Guru Hargobind, who accorded the religion a martial temper, built the Akal Takht in 1606. Amritsar has a rich history encompassing various mythical and historical narratives including the epic Ramayana. This is the the home where much of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan was birthed.
Pushkar (November 16-20)- Pushkar is one of the oldest cities in India. Located to the northwest of Ajmer, it is a favoured destination for thousands of devotees flocking to Rajasthan. Situated at a height of 510 metres, Pushkar is surrounded by hillocks on three sides. The 'Nag Pahar', literally meaning Snake Mountain, forms a natural border between Ajmer and Pushkar. Known as 'the rose garden of Rajasthan', the essence of the famous Pushkar rose is exported all over the world. Along with an interesting mythological history, a legacy of timeless architectural heritage makes Pushkar a fascinating city. According to legends, Lord Brahma, believed to be the creator of the universe, dropped a lotus to the ground leading to the immediate creation of a lake. He then decided to name the place after the flower, and thus the area got the name Pushkar. The city is home to the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the whole world. Hindus consider a journey to Pushkar to be the ultimate pilgrimage that must be undertaken to attain salvation. According to Hindu scriptures, the sacred Pushkar Lake is described as 'Tirtha Raj', the king of all pilgrimage sites. No pilgrimage is considered complete without a dip in in the holy lake.
Varansi (November 20-24) -The city of Varanasi is one of India’s oldest and holiest cities. The city is important because it is dedicated to the Lord Shiva. It is built on the banks of the Ganga and pilgrims travel for miles to immerse themselves in the sacred river. Bathing in the Ganga will help purify and wash away sins. Nearly 5000 years ago, Kasikanda described the glory of the city in 15,000 verses in the Skanda Purana. In it Lord Shiva says, ‘the three worlds form one city of mine and Kasi is my royal palace therein'. As Shiva's abode Varanasi has always been venerated. The Hindu believe that if a deceased’s ashes are laid in the Ganga at Varanasi, their soul will be transported to heaven and escape the cycle of rebirth. This concept called moksha (liberation) is profound. The holier the place, the better the chances you achieve moksha and avoid returning to Earth as a cow or a cricket in your next life.
Me With Me is the Purity.
Me Within Me is the Reality.
Me Within Me is the Grace.
I Am the Master of the Space.

Gurunam Singh is a world-traveling chant artist who practices and teaches kundalini meditations using sound and intentions. His beautiful voice and depth carry people to a sacred space. He lived in Espanola, New Mexico, for 8 years where he took classes with Yogi Bhajan, grew as a musician and worked on Yogi Bhajans’ estates. He lived in India from 2009-2011, in the Punjab, diving into the culture, studying raag and learning pronunciation. His mantra chants, though, are simple and easy, and his music more western folk rock sounding-accessible to all.
After leaving India he began touring, leading Kirtan events, workshops and making CD’s under the Spirit Voyage label and has been doing so for the last seven years. Gurunam went on to co-lead four yattras (trips) in India since his initial stay. It is a second home for him. He feels grateful to be singing his way through the motherland again soon with us all, and to be on the sacred land visiting the holy spaces.
