You can almost find a home for yourself in the lap of the Himalayas. The bounty of nature coupled with human touch and warmth is the best kind of spiritual gift that you can get.
India is a land of varied cultures, religions and beliefs. Each of these beliefs co-exists with each other to make way for a unique divinity. The real mysticism lies in the healthy co-existence of so many beliefs and each merging into the other to impart a message of peaceful existence. On one hand you can go back in history to find some of the oldest churches in the sub-continent established by the colonisers or the monasteries in the hill stations to find a heightened sense of peace and devotion. On the other hand, you can imbibe immense spiritual energy just by sitting on the ghats of Benaras every evening during the famous Ganga aarti. The lighting of the lamps fills the air with such positivity that you can really feel something divine in the air.
In fact, the river Ganga has been a source of inspiration since times immemorial. Not only has it given birth to an entire civilisation but has also been worshipped for its spiritual significance among Indians. You can also visit the famous Golden Temple which is the holiest Gurudwara in the country and is known for its peaceful ambience that touches your soul every time you visit the place. If you are looking for a thrilling experience which is spiritual at the same time, go further up the hills to reach Kedarnath, Badrinath or Gangotri. These places are difficult to reach but once you are up there you will feel as if you are on paradise.
