Day 1

Recently, on the eve of yagya i went to one of the most famous religious places Haridwar ( Harri ka dawar )

I was eagerly waiting at the station for the arrival of train. Train got late by 1 hour. It was moist warm weather and i learnt meaning of patience for sure at the station.

Finally, the journey starts! Luckily i got my window seat thanks to rail department. The passengers beside me were also travelling to hairdwar and were of a very kind nature. It was a couple having a cute little baby boy.

After somewhat hour when rail was at pace without any stops, i started gazing at the window showing me the real beauty of mother earth with animals around.

I was lost into the journey. Had no idea what is the time and how much time is left for destination. My music was on! Window beside and snacks in my hands. 🙈

So finally we reached the destination ' Haridwar'. I was with my family. We just rusher into the hotel. Rested for some while having a cup of tea with biscuits.

As an observer, my small trip to one of the most religious places in india was very enlightening. Haridwar  meaning the door to god. Its not just a place to visit yet it is a whole cloud of thought. 💭

Day 2

So finally! We were in Haridwar.

In the morning itself we went at Harr ki Pauri. Haridwar  meaning the door to god. Its not just a place to visit yet it is a whole cloud of thought. 💭

Its a place of million thoughts and beliefs. People across various boundaries visit the holy place.

Harr ki Pauri meaning Stairs of God is famous for holy dip. Their is a full pack of energy and excitment while taking the holy dip.

You can enjoy gazing at the beautiful Ganga Maiya (Rivergoddess) for infinite. The flow, the pace, the smooth sound can be felt. 🌊

It was by noon. We went to our guru's temple Harmilap Bhavan. I had an amazing experience there. I had the luck to do Sewa (serve) at the Lungar (Lunch). In evening their was a Satsang meaning people gathering together and reciting the name of the almighty.
