For untold ages, Khajuraho has been a stronghold of tantric practice. Pilgrims from all over the world flock here to see its perfect blend of art, architecture, and spirituality—22 magnificent temples covered with ornate stone carvings depicting tantric cosmology and symbolism. For tantric practitioners and adepts, Khajuraho is the place where the sacred and the mundane merge. Here, at this meeting ground of human and divine, the Institute has built a new retreat center.
The 2013 Kumbha Mela pilgrimage coincides with the consecration of a Sri Vidya shrine on the Institute’s campus in Khajuraho. Centuries pass without having an opportunity to be part of such an auspicious occasion. At this spiritually charged shrine, we will be the first to undertake a group practice for our personal healing and the healing of the planet.
Our Campus in Khajuraho
Our campus is only seven miles from Khajuraho’s main temple complex. Surrounded by hills and forest preserves, the Institute’s 30-acre campus is blessed with natural beauty and tranquility. Just as at Allahabad, here in Khajuraho the key amenities—water, food, and accommodations—are unparalleled. With the Institute’s campus as your base, you will have the opportunity to visit the world-famous Khajuraho temples, take part in the consecration of the tantric shrine, reflect on your commitment to personal healing and empowerment, and visit nearby villages that still embody the centuries-old spirit of India.
