With its mesmerising influence on the minds and souls of millions of people, Kumbh Mela is known to be the largest congregation of humanity. This auspicious festival has a major cultural importance and spiritual glory. As per the ancient hindu mythology, the Maha Kumbh Mela is the only time and place when human beings get a golden opportunity to get rid of all the sins they have done in the past. It is believed that the one who takes a dip at the holy banks of the river at Kumbh, can achieve Nirvana or Moksha i.e get free from the cycle of birth and rebirth. Dive into the sacred water, wash away all the sins and open the doors for the attainment of Moksha.

According to the history, Ujjain, Nasik, Allahabad and Haridwar are the four places where the drops of amrut or the elixir of immortality fell on earth from the kumbh (pitcher) when the gods and demons were struggling to acquire the nectar of immortality. It is indeed one of the rarest opportunities for human beings that can liberate them from all their pain and sufferings and lead them towards salvation. The faith in this sacred ritual attracts thousands of priests, ash- dubbed sages or the Naga sadhus, devotees, saints and spiritual leaders from all over the world. A large tented town is created on the banks of the holy river.

The tents or the Akharas are owned by great religious and spiritual guides. On the banks of river Kshipra, during Simhastha http://www.yogalife.co.in/seminar-home/Kumbh Mela 2016, the Ujjain Yoga Life Society is constructing well-equipped tents with comfortable boarding and lodging and all the basic amenities including purified drinking water, freshly cooked and healthy food, electricity, 24 hours medical help, well organised security services, wifi and on site fire brigade. Bookings can be made online by simply visiting the website yogalife.co.in.
