Maha Kumbha Mela 2012 - 2013 and who wants to join????

I know our 2010 yatra has not begun and you must be wondering 'Is she crazy? Already she is jumping into 2012-2013? Last night we were talking to a friend Linda and she wants to go. We are hoping that Sri Babaji mentioned in Paramahamsa Yogananda's 'Autobiography of a Yogi' will give us His darsan.That triggered my search and I want to go too. I very much wanted to go in 2000-2001 and could not. Below is a website which throws lot of light on the sacred festival. I want to finish all my yatras before 2014.

I want to go! I went in 2001, and it was a transformative experience. Would love to go again.

I am going surely. I understand what Babaji you are talking of. Hope to get blessings from him.

I am staying in Bangalore, India. Let me know if you need any kind help.

See you there at Mahakumbh.

Arvind, I don't live in India and am also exploring, searching on the internet for package tours and other information. Good luck to you and your friends.

Guys! I also want to go there, in april 2012. Does anybody know a package tour from Peru to india?. There I´d like to visit Babaji´s ashram, and I understand he is death, what Babaji´s refers you?

Hi Angel,

Yes, Babaji is dead long long ago. The Babaji I am talking about is referred to in the book "Autobiography of a yogi" by Parama Hamsa Yogananda of the Self realization group.
Secondly, the Mahakumbh Mela in not in April 2012 - it is in Jan, Feb of 2013. There could be other Kumbh Melas in other places.

I will search on the internet for tours from Peru and let you know. I am originally from India, but live in the USA. I was in Allahabad three times in my life and the Kumbh Mela I am talking about is in Allahabad.
Try clicking on this link for 2013 event:

I could not find anything separately for 2012.

From Peru to India, you should check your local agents.

Hi Angel, suddenly it occurred to me that you could be asking about Sri Sathya Sai Baba, since you mentioned April. He left His body on April 24, 2011. Were you asking about Him? Is that why you want to go in April? Let me know.

Kumbh Mela is the biggest religious and spiritual event and Maha Kumbh Mela 2013 will be bigger and better than ever. Everyone should attend this holy event at least once.
