I was fortunate to be a part of a life changing trip to India. My daughter and I had the opportunity of meditating each morning and attend classes, “Unlock the Power of your Brain”. In addition to the classes we explored the “Golden Triangle of India”. The Golden Triangle consists of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. India is the most spiritual and cultural place I have ever been. I have been a travel agent for over 30 years, and traveled the globe, but India was an eye opener for me.
The flight was over 19 hours and upon arrival we headed to our hotel . India has over 1.2 Billion people and possible more that live on the streets. The capitol city of Delhi alone has over 2.4 million people. The next morning we went on a four hour cycle Rickshaw ride through the narrow streets and bazaars in Old Delhi. I was amazed at how they drive. They occupy every inch of space and their horns never stop honking. I would never recommend driving. Old Delhi was a culture shock as we weaved in and out of the alleys of the shopping area of Chandni Chowk. It was a little scary but a must-do, in order to capture the life of the lower class. We were in a colorful rickshaw pedaled by one person, but they also have auto rickshaws which you will even see on the highways. In Old Delhi, we visited Raju Ghat (the memorial site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated), Red Fort (was the residence of the Mughal emperors), Sikh Temple, Hindu Temple and Lotus Temple. At the temples we saw and felt the spiritual worshipping around us. It was a feeling and sight to behold.
