Ultimate Beatles Tour: Rishikesh, Optional Extra

This is the adventurous part. On to Rishikesh in India - home of the former Ashram of the Maharishi and to the Beatles for an incredibly creative 5 weeks (though it ended in tears and Ringo didn't last that long!) We will have a private tour of the Ashram with musical accompaniment and stroll the paths where The Beatles strummed acoustic guitars and wrote an estimated 48 songs and a large percentage of The White Album.

A time to contemplate and reflect amongst the lush vegetation of Northern India at the foothills of the Himalayas 

Rishikesh is one of the holiest cities in India, where the river Ganges comes down from the mountains. It is a very popular destination for kayaking, trekking, climbing, camping, bird watching and hiking so you don't have to return home when we do. Treat yourself and have a break to take in the past week following in the footsteps of the Beatles.

In the evening you will witness the Ceremonial Worship (Aarti) at Parmarth Niketan Ashram

The Ganga Aarati at Rishikesh is an unforgettably spiritual experience. Performed each evening at sundown at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram, on the banks of the holy river Ganga, it is an event to gladden the heart, feed the soul and create harmony with the elements. Fire, Water, Earth, Air combine in perfect synergy during this ritual and leave you with a feeling of having witnessed perfection.

The one and half hour ceremony, starting with sacred chants and a ‘Yagna’ or fire ceremony, during which a mixture of sacred herbs and ghee (clarified butter) are poured into the fire in order to dispel negative energies, is concluded with the Aarati, during which the river is worshipped as the source of life on the physical plane, and as a symbol of the eternal life circle on the metaphysical plane.

The performance of the Aarati by the Guru, the singing of bhajans (hymns) by the saffron robed disciples, the fragrance of incense and camphor as it permeates the air, the mesmeric light of myriad diyas, the sound of the rushing river, the setting sun mirrored in sparkling ripples on the flowing water, the intensity of the people as they sway in unison, all combine to create a surreal atmosphere of peace that pervades every sense and remains with you long after you have left Rishikesh.
