“Pilgrimage to the Himalayas, Journey to Sikkim”
with Swami Ma Radha

Sikkim

Of the 2,500 kilometer (1,500 mile) arc of the land mass called the Himalayan mountain range, the Indian state called Sikkim can be found in the southeasterly portion, sandwiched between Nepal to the West and Bhutan to the East with the Tibetan autonomous region also to the East and North.

Little is known about Sikkim's ancient history.  The earliest historical mention of Sikkim is a record of the passage of the Buddhist saint Padmasambhava, (also known as Guru Rinpoche), through the land in the 8th century AD. The Guru is reported to have introduced Buddhism to the country, blessed the land, and foretold the era of monarchy that would arrive in Sikkim centuries later.

A geographically diverse country with awe inspiring Himalayan natural beauty, Sikkim contains socio-cultural fascination and spiritual political intrigue that continues to this day.

Come explore the reach of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, linked to the Himalayan Tradition (Sri Swami Rama’s grand guru was from Tibet), in another region of Hindu-Buddhist harmony in India.

For Yoga Teachers

If you are a yoga teacher with an active center and happy students that want to discover India with you, we would love to help. We can not only introduce you to the wonder that is India, but can also make arrangements for you to act as teacher (as well as student) during your trip. We have connections with numerous energetically charged locations for you to guide classes as well as well as places for you to step back and let others handle your group to allow you time for your own spiritual renewal and revitalization.
We pride ourselves on designing trips that take into account your own personal goals and aims; goals for your students, yourself and your center. We can adjust, create, and recommend people, places and things to experience given what these goals and aims are. Let us know what they might be, and we shall do our best, given our resources, to help you meet those aims.
