The Nirvana Trail – ‘Vihara’ (‘experiential’ walking) across a lesser known ancient chapter in the story of Delhi!
(Click here for Facebook event link)
In this unique tour we’ll walk in the spiritually charged neighborhood of Yoginipura, the modern day Mehrauli. We’ll experience the serene surroundings and the associated stories and amazing art work around. We’ll explore some lesser known places related to the Jain and Buddhist faiths and understand how these schools of thought brought about a ‘renaissance’ and “the first Indian rebellion” in early medieval times.
We’ll also discuss about the ‘Jain’ aspects of Delhi’s history that run across the times as a common binding thread as Delhi flipped pages from the ancient through the Sultanate, Mughal and even the British and contemporary chapters of its life!
Together, we’ll visit a blessed sanctum of peace and harmony; take a tranquil trek among the greens and up a hillock to witness grand idols of an enlightened masters; listen to stories and historical trivia; and take a dip into our own Creativity and Zen with a healing and liberating activity under the sky 🙂
