Millions of pilgrims, sadhus & sanyasis (monks & sages), musicians, artisans and all kinds of craftsmen are gathering on the sacred banks of river Kshipra. A drop of the nectar of immortality fell here during the öght between the gods and the demons when the universe was örst created. On astrologically determined days, millions of holy men and pilgrims take bath in the River Kshipra to wash away karmic impurities and to help the soul önd its way to freedom. It is by far the largest gathering for month long of pilgrims in the world with 50 million people embarking on the once in a lifetime spiritual journey, chanting the gods above, on the magical banks of river Kshipra.

Ujjain is one of the holiest cities in India. According to Indian astrology, zero degrees begins in Ujjain. According to the Mahabharata’s Aranya-parva, Ujjain is one of the seven sacred moksa-puris. The others are Ayodhya, Mathura, Haridwar, Kashi (Varanasi), Kanchipuram, and Dwarka. It is said that Siva killed the demon Tripura at Ujjain

Above all, the Kumbha - Simhastha 2016 is a celebration of the unity underlying the great diversity of spiritual and religious paths that run through India from ancient times till the present moment. The Kumbha - Simhastha 2016 is a symbol for the search of the personal soul for freedom, which ends when it knows itself, without any doubt, as one with the Original Soul of all Beings. Where the three constituents of the human form (body, mind and soul) meet in the Supreme Consciousness of this One Being, it's the supreme peace.
