Shakta Kaur leads a Spiritual Journey Tour to India
November 22, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsShakta Kaur has chosen Spiritual Journeys Inc. to package and manage Visit India – Change Your Life a tour which she will lead. “The very land is steeped in spirituality, where many ancient practices were developed and perfected over 5,000 years ago. Simply walking the land can leave a profound and lasting imprint on your soul” said Shakta Kaur, as she described the tour which includes visits to New Delhi, The Taj Mahal in Agra, where Buddha gave his first sermon (in Sarnath), the Golden Temple in Amritsar, and Varanasi. The BBC has listed Agra and Amritsar as two of the top ten sites to visit in the world.
Shakta Kaur is the Chairperson of Yoga Alliance (YA) Board of Directors. The YA is the country's leading organization for yoga teachers offering a variety of services to the yoga community including developing educational standards for yoga teachers and, most recently, in the specialty areas of Children's Yoga and Pre-Natal Yoga. This is the first time that a yogi representing the Kundalini Research Institute and the teachings of Yogi Bhajan has ever held the position of Chair of the Yoga Alliance.
Kaur will offer her perspectives on yoga twinned with spirituality while visiting the great religious and cultural sites, and walking in the footsteps of the Masters. Starting and ending in Delhi, the capital city of a succession of powerful kingdoms each leaving numerous fascinating ruins through the ages, the tour goes to Amritsar (the seat of the Sikhs and the Golden Temple), Varanasi (one of the oldest cities in the world, with a pre-dawn boat ride on the Holy Ganga), Sarnath (where Buddha gave his first sermon), Khajuraho (city of gorgeous temples, some known for their erotic sculptures), Orcha (serenity and bliss) and Agra (Taj Mahal). There is an optional tour to Rishikesh and Hardwar (the twin holy towns in on the bank of the holy Ganges).
The 12-day main tour departs Europe March 22, 2007 or the Americas March 21, 2007, and is open to the public. Information at: www.SpiritualJourneys.net.
