Kumbh Chalo – this is the call I am making to you, to have the experience to live a minimalistic life of aparigraha, which you will experience in the Kumbh Mela. Please listen. Reject all those anti-faith people who wrongly judge Bharat as a poor country. Spiritually, Bharat is a very rich country and you must go to the Kumbh Mela to experience that.
Kumbh Chalo, because the Kumbh Mela is a celebration of the richest Vedic traditions. The naga sadhus are the very embodiment of aparigraha and nirvana – the science of enlightenment and liberation. And so are the millions of devotees and pilgrims who come from all over the world with a single-minded fervour of devotion and faith to take a dip in the sacred waters to feel oneness with the Supreme Being and enlightenment.
Kumbh Chalo, because it is at the Kumbh Mela that you will experience POSSIBILITY in its highest form. The auspicious planetary configuration of Simhasta Kumbh charges the whole atmosphere with divine cosmic energy, radiating it intensely, giving everyone present there the possibility for enlightenment! Understand, that by your very presence you add your energy to any field you exist in, any space you are around, especially when you are active intensely!
The Harvard Review says that the Kumbh Mela of 2013 at Allahabad was better organized than the FIFA World Cup, despite billions of dollars being poured into its organization. But in the Kumbh Mela, things just happen – everything just gets organized. Why? Because, no matter how disorganized we are in other aspects of life, Hindus are highly organized when it comes to their religion and festivals. That is because we are interested in it and intensely active and focussed when involved in its celebrations.
Kumbh Chalo – to experience how more than 10 crore people can walk along a very restricted place at the Kumbh Ghat, with full religious fervour, take a holy dip and yet not cause a stampede or commit any crime! Because, they know the Kumbh Ghat is a very sacred place.
Kumbh Chalo – to experience the power of our sacred sentiments. It is in the Kumbh Mela we celebrate our spiritual sacredness, where we teach certain concepts and certain Truths. This is where you can experience Nithyananda as the great Naga, descendant of and descended from Mahadeva. And, know that if millions of people are doing something, it is because it is our culture, our sacredness.
Kumbh Chalo – to be a part of the annadaan, feeding the sadhus – people who have consciously chosen the minimalistic life. It is through annadaan we show our respect for their lifestyle and their conscious decision to live it as ascetics because of their beliefs.
Therefore, if you are tired or bored and want to recharge yourself, Kumbh Chalo!
If you have a physical disease, Kumbh Chalo!
If you have a psychological disorder, Kumbh Chalo!
Even if you are a non-believer, Kumbh Chalo! – because, even for such a person liberation is waiting there!
In the spiritual activism of the place, the body and mind will reinvent itself and your diseases will disappear. Because, at the Kumbh Mela the whole atmosphere will be charged with spiritual ferociousness and celebration will be active.
Kumbh Mela is our life, our very own celebration where we show how we live, where we enrich the world with what we believe, with what we think, with what we hold and how we hold as life for us.
Kumbh Mela is where we celebrate LIFE and our BELIEFS. Kumbh Mela is the place where sacredness and tapas radiates, where living with minimal things is practiced and where millions of naga sadhus demonstrate the power of nirvana (liberation) to the world.
