There is participation from more than a thousand Yoga Masters and more than 60,000 Yoga lovers from all over the world. The Kumbha Mela, considered to be an incredible ocean of faith, is by far the largest gathering of its kind. For over a month, pilgrims from all over the world unite in their belief and embark upon this holy journey. They chant and invoke the Gods, bathe at the Holy River Kshipra and in many ways, a journey to the Kumbha Mela is considered a spiritual completion. The Ujjain Mela is held in central India – on the holy lands of Ujjain, considered to be the city of Mahakaleshwar, or Lord Shiva. In the throngs of mystical sadhus (monks), pilgrims will attain spiritual purification and emerge renewed from the Kumbha. This is a once-in-a-lifetime journey that will take them into the hearts of Hinduism and its philosophy, beliefs and traditions. This year's Mela is a celebration of the unity underlying the great diversity of spiritual and religious paths that run through India from ancient times till now. Among the millions of pilgrims who desire to make this pilgrimage, many are afraid to do so because of underlying conditions such as uncontrolled crowds, excessive traffic nightmares, and a severe lack of basic amenities such as clean living and housing conditions and proper provision of uncontaminated food and water. The organizing team of Yoga Kumbha has committed for the very first time in history, to provide hospitality which is at par with international standards. Come and experience the real comfort of cleanliness, hygiene and easy travel. You will always be safe and secure, even in the crowd of thousands. The Yoga Kumbha Simahasta 2016 camp will be located on the banks of the river Kshipra, at a very convenient, chaos free, isolated location for Holy Snan (Bathing). Yoga Kumbha would protect the privacy and provide top level security to all its guests.
