The mystical MITAWALI – Chausath Yogini Shiva Tantric Temple! This temple dedicated to Taantric practices and meditation dates back to the 9th Century and happens to be one of our MOST FAVOURITE sites visited till date! The video is designed to be a meditation-music video of sorts with 3 original meditation audio tracks and also has some narration about the history of the place. Hope you’ll enjoy and have a meditative experience viewing this 🙂 A cozy n cool environ and nice headphones (or big speakers with bass) is advisable 🙂 Blessings for all!
On the way up to the Gwalior fort the road climbs through a wooded gorge called the Urwahi valley. Facing it, and carved into the soaring sandstone cliff, are the imposing ‘Jain‘ monoliths that depict the Teerthankars. The Sanskrit/Hindi word “Teerth” means a destination situated at the bank of a river and “Teerthankar” would mean someone who enables a traveller to reach this destination. Symbolizing the flow of existence as a flowing river, “Teerthankar” would essentially mean an enlightened master who helps fellow beings in crossing the river and reaching the ‘destination’. The monolith statues are believed to have been carved in the 15th century under the patronage of a Tomar king.
For a video tour to these massive monoliths please see >> this post!

Sufi Rang – Kaafi : the joyous season of Basant Bahaar – Spring and a musical journey across the land of Sufis – Delhi! 🙂
This melody is woven around the raag Kaafi which is associated with the spring season in India. Often, several Indian traditional tunes associated to the festival of Holi and Basant are woven around this melodic scale itself. The visuals have been shot at several Sufi shrines in Delhi like the shrines of Qutub Saheb, Chirag-e-Dehlavi, Mai Saheba, Matka Pir, Hzt. Nizamuddin Auliya and some more historical places in Delhi.
