Sacred India Tours (S.I.T.)
Sacred India Tours (S.I.T.) was founded to provide sincere seekers of Truth an opportunity to experience the various spiritual traditions, people and culture of India.
S.I.T. offers the following tours:
3 weeks South India
3 weeks North India
5 weeks South and North combined
The South India tour is scheduled in Aug/Sept or Sept/Oct and around Christmas.
The North India tour usually takes place Febr/March or March/April.
A minimum of eight people are required for each tour.
In 2017 an additional tour (click here for information) will be organised during which we will visit several places connected with the life of Buddha in India and Nepal.
According to local circumstances sometimes a slight change in programm might be necessary.
The focus during the tours is on:
- Experiencing the power of certain holy places
- Introducing ashram life and the possibility to participate in the ashram routine including meditation
- Meeting with special people on the way, such as sannyasins (monks) and sadhaks (people following the spiritual path) as well as local people
- Opening up to your inner silence
Since we will be visiting some traditional places, all participants are asked to respect the local customs and traditions. All participants will receive some background information on the local customs as well as guidelines to help you prepare yourself.
In terms of transport and accomodation you will have a variety of experiences. You will stay in hotels, guesthouses as well as in ashrams (double room occupancy as much as possible). You will travel (sometimes) on an inland flight, in AC trains, in taxi's as well as in private buses. Everywhere you will eat good nourishing vegetarian food.
The international flight is not included in the tour.
Usually the tour is planned is such a way that we stay in each place a few days because in this way it will be possible to integrate experiences and to deepen the inner process.
