Friends – I am sharing this by experience and also by guidance from my #Life mentors! Mother nature has presently chosen to bring a lot of our man-made systems to slow down. With schools, offices and entertainment spaces shut, we are “home” …and suddenly we have a lot of “time” and several other worries postponed for some time.
It is only a question of how to use everything, whatever it is, use it rightly. The disaster is great, the danger is great, but great is the opportunity too. – Osho
In this final episode from our Nov 2019 Dehradun Exploration trip we bring to you the ancient site of Ashvamedha Yagya (Horse Sacrifice) of 3rd-4th Century AD … located in Jagatgram, an ancient village in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India. We also stop by the bank of Yamuna to explore an old bridge and to reflect upon this awesome tour 🙂 Thanks for watching! Stay tuned to the channel for more such experiences! Cheers and blessings for all 🙂

The story of Indian forests and the Forest Research Institute!
Sitting right in the heart of this battleground, we witnessed some amazing stories of the British-Gorkha war of 1814 AD where an army of 400 Gorkhas gave a tough time to a decorated army of 5000 soldiers of the Company!
Built in 1707, almost half a century after Taj Mahal, this lesser known shrine, situated in the heart of Dehradun, is the reason why the town is named so! The construction was patronised by Aurangzeb who dedicated this place to his friend and guide, Sri Guru Ram Rai. This complex is one of the finest examples of artworks of Mughal times ..with marvellous Frescoes, Marble-inlay work (pachchikari) done by the descendants of artists who worked on Taj Mahal.. this place is an oasis of tranquility in Dehradun.
In this episode – the story of Buddhism in Dehradun, Tibetan Buddhism, and the Buddhist connections of Benaras, Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Haryana!
