Kumbh Mela at the Ganges River

March 6, 2013  -  Festivals

The Ganges river is the primary source of attraction during the Kumbh Mela festival. It is more than a river truly. For pilgrims it is what they’ve been waiting to be with for months and years. For the millions that come, traveling miles on foot, bus, trains, planes and more, it is place to let go of unwanted burdens and receive an inflow of loving change. Those who approach the river with the right attitude and mind set get the biggest rewards. Yet, there are others who come unwilling to dip in the Ganges and fall victim to her magical ways, end up taking a dip and are never the same.
