Trekking Through India
RMA guides, Lyndsey and Megan recently returned from their travels in northern India and told us all about their trip! Lyndsey and Megan first stopped at the city Varanasi where they witnessed cremations near the Ganges River. Aside from the nightly ganga ceremonies, they also took boat tours and saw mechanical deities. One of these modern statues was Hanuman. He was constantly opening his heart to prove, as it is said in his story, his deep love for Rama and Sita. Their next stop was Sarnath which is the first site of the teaching’s Buddha. Afterward they traveled to Bodhgaya where the Dalai Lama happened to be teaching. There they attended a Kalachakra and witnessed monks running around with kettles of yak butter tea and bread to serve the thousands that came to listen ad learn from the Dalai Lama. Lyndsey and Megan also visited the Mahabodhi temple at Bodhgaya before they left for Rhishikesh. Rhishikesh is located at the foothill of the Himalayas and near the mouth of the Ganges. It is also a Shiva affiliated and a vegetarian region. Their final stop was at Delhi where they visited the National Gallery of Contemporary Art and experienced India and it’s culture in a more modern sense.
