The first time I traveled there was 1970, when I stayed for 6 months in the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the guru of the Beatles and guru of Deepak Chopra. Meditating in that holy place in Rishikesh, India was a deeply spiritual experience that changed my life dramatically. India is where you can find amazing human beings who have realized who they really are and have attained a state of higher consciousness.
Visiting these holy men and women is an incredibly inspirational and deeply moving experience. They exude so much love. It’s a divine love that is far beyond our average human capacity to love. When you are in the presence of a holy person, you absorb that love energy by osmosis, and it changes you. It makes you a better person. It inspires you to be all you can be, and it lifts and expands your consciousness. There are untold benefits to being in the presence of the great saints of India.
