A pilgrimage is a prayer in the shape of a journey to a place where spirit resides.
Mara Freeman

A pilgrimage is a ritual journey with a hallowed purpose. Every step along the way has meaning. The pilgrim knows that life giving challenges will emerge. A pilgrimage is not a vacation; it is a transformational journey during which significant change takes place. New insights are given. Deeper understanding is attained. New and old places in the heart are visited. Blessings are received and healing takes place. On return from the pilgrimage, life is seen with different eyes. Nothing will ever be quite the same again.
Macrina Wiederkehr,

The pilgrimage is a ritual, prevalent in almost every faith and culture in the world and the impulse to undertake such a journey surely dates back to ancient times. When a pilgrim sets out, there is a purpose to his or her journey. This could be to experience a holy or sacred site, to seek answers to questions, or to receive healing or spiritual rejuvenation.

Every four years, thousands of Hindus converge on the River Ganges for the Kumbha Mela, the Aboriginals in Australia go on 'walkabouts' in the outback, each Muslim pledges to go at least once in their life on the hajj to Mecca and many Christians visit Lourdes hoping for healing and respite from illnesses and life's problems, or they visit Jerusalem or Bethlehem in the Holy Land.

There are many reasons to take pilgrimages, but the intent is always to acknowledge the sacred and the supreme. The difference therefore, between a tourist and a pilgrim, is simply one of intention. It is very difficult to express or annotate the experience people have at such places, it has to be experienced only. One instinctively knows how and why a place is holy or special and the effects it has on spiritual, emotional or physical level as one is transported into a different realm. Such places provide solace and often feel timeless, ancient and somehow familiar.

Indian temples, mosques, synagogues and shrines are fancied by millions the world over. Avail our programs, meticulously worked out to facilitate pilgrimages and other such holy explorations, the fantastic way of experiencing the sacredness of the universe. Since the dawn of time, people have sought out places of divine revelation in an urge to seek nirvana.
