An Exploration of Spirituality
Delhi pulsates with life, from vivid colors to chaotic bazaars, and from mouthwatering street snacks to magnificent ruins. In a city like no other, students will be blown away by the cacophony of cultures and religions that they encounter here, falling in love with its diverse beauty.
In Delhi we move between the Muslim Qutb Minar Complex and the Hindu Akshardham Temple, observing how each religion blends peacefully into the surrounding community, before visiting the elegant Bahá’í Lotus Temple. People from all systems of belief are invited to worship here, allowing us to explore ideas of interfaith acceptance and co-operation. After Agra comes Vrindavana, a small town known for the eternal presence of the Hindu god Krishna and goddess Radha. Students explore the local temples before spending a night in an ashram, where we re-engage with the powerful energy and profound wisdom of the world, developing our spiritual and physical wellbeing.
“Traveling to India is such an eye-opening experience, especially for those coming from the West. While the overpopulation and poverty are unimaginable, they will give you a totally new perspective on the world that we live in.” – Arthur
