DETAILS

One hundred million, that’s how many pilgrims were estimated to have made the journey to the confluence of the holiest rivers in India during the epic 55-day Maha Kumbh Mela in 2013. The Hindu belief is that good and evil fought over a cup (Kumbh) of nectar of immortality (Amrita) in the beginning of time. During that twelve-day fight, four droplets fell to the Earth. Twelve God days is equivalent to twelve human years, so every twelfth year for thousands of years, they have come. It is believed that the waters of the confluence hold the power of transformation and when consumed and/or bathed in, these waters allow a Hindu to break their cycle of earthly reincarnation. 2013 was marked as the world’s largest gathering of human beings ever. A joyful occasion for all of those who made the journey to connect with something greater than themselves ..and their own moments of salvation.
