Amritsar, the “Pool of Nectar”: A city intricately woven around the Sacred Pool of Nectar at the heart of the Harimandir Sahib (The Golden Temple), stands as a testament to spiritual richness. Established by Guru Ram Das, it is often referred to as “Sach Khand” or the Realm of Truth, representing the highest blue ether or heaven. Amritsar is not only home to this spiritual marvel but also hosts Miri Piri Academy, the sanctuary of the global Kundalini Yoga community. Established by the visionary Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan in the 1990s, it serves as a beacon for those seeking spiritual growth and enlightenment. Immerse yourself in the divine atmosphere of Amritsar, where tradition and spirituality converge to create a transformative experience.
Anandpur Sahib, the “City of Bliss” : Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, Anandpur Sahib is a city steeped in spiritual significance. It was established by Guru Tegh Bahadur and the Birthplace of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh. The city is graced by the presence of the Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib, one of the five temporal seats of authority in Sikhism. The many historic gurdwaras are not just architectural marvels but embody the spirit of Sikhism. They stand as a testament to the courage, sacrifice, and devotion of the Sikh spirit. Anandpur Sahib is a sanctuary for those seeking a deep connection with Sikh history and spirituality.
