From the first week of January 2013 through the middle of February Parmarth will be hosting a beautiful camp in the Kumbha Mela at Prayag Raj (Allahabad) at the sacred sangam of the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati rivers. A divine event that takes place only once every 12 years, the Kumbha Mela is the celebration of the divine nectar of immortality. It is the time when the alignment of the stars and planets is at its most auspicious for having a holy bath in the sacred waters and for performing sadhana and meditation.  It is the time when the saints, sages, rishis and sadhus come together to share their wisdom, their insight and their blessings with devotees who throng from all across the world. This year the Mela is expecting a record 130 million people! 

Come and be part of the divine experience, have a bath in the sacred sangam, bathe in the divine darshan and presence of the revered saints. 

Below are the main bathing dates and major activities taking place at Parmarth camp. See www.kumbhamela2013.org for more details.
