Pilgrimage Wedding

Everybody loves a wedding! The community here at the Himalayan Institute in Allahabad, on pilgrimage to the Kumbha Mela, is delighted to discover they are invited to the Vedic wedding of two of our fellow pilgrims. Samantha Schiavitti and Corey Cudney study with the Himalayan Institute in Buffalo, New York; and asked Rolf Sovik, the Spiritual Director of the Institute to conduct their wedding in the traditional style here on the banks of the Ganga in Allahabad.
