Master Shashi Dubey and the magical mystery tour of India in April which is the cruelest month I know!



Make sure you read this very slick programme in great detail. It tries to use Steve Jobs to get you to think you are on the right road. Putting St. Francis and Sai Baba in the same document makes me want to puke.

“Through 40 years of experience I have understood that we are all puppets on a stage and God Almighty is the great director.”

Note how Shashi views God and  humankind?

The Spiritual Journey to Himalayas
April 2018

Summer time, Himalayas, India
Dear Spiritualists, Some of you visited here before, some are preparing to visit for the first time. I want to bring to your knowledge the importance of this trip & as a result of such an adventure what are you going to achieve? This will be a journey of further self-discovery for you.
This trip will provide you with rejuvenation, focus, & an opportunity to connect with yourself. The most important thing which we have to understand is that time does not stop for anyone, if we lose today without improving, evolving or correcting ourselves, the opportunity is gone forever.
My purpose is not to teach or explain to you or to bring the truth in front of you, but to guide you to analyze your personal situation and to improve yourself using your own strengths. In order to prepare for your arrival, the Indus Routes team here in India and Ireland are making very special preparations to receive you and make your trip memorable and enjoyable.

When you are born, you cry.
When you go from this world, people cry.
When you are young, a toy is your friend.
And when you are old, medicine is your friend.

The Spiritual Journey to Himalayas
April 2018

Life is a journey and we are all on the road together. On this journey, we constantly experience a diverse range of emotions ranging from joy to sorrow and from anger to fear and anxiety. However, this is all just the perception of multifarious simultaneous happenings the intensity of which can vary. Through 40 years of experience I have understood that we are all puppets on a stage and God Almighty is the great director. He not only points us in the direction of challenges based on the consequences of our past actions, but he also judges our responses to these challenges. The challenges are karmic manifestations of our own past actions that we face in our current life journey. Our responses are how we exercise our free will to overcome these challenges.
We dream we will accomplish great things, and in the process to achieve those dreams, we often find ourselves failing, or in a different situation than imagined. Every year we plan to achieve those dreams and in that process, we question ourselves about who will help us do it, who can we look after, so that in turn, they will look after us. Often the results show we did not receive the support we were expecting and those dreams do not come through. God gives us a map when we are born, based on our past Karma. This map can be read by those who practice Astrology or have similar knowledge or strengths and shows us the route to be taken from birth to death. The birth chart of the individual provides the basis of navigating to the end point of this map. Finally, what is our ultimate purpose of our journey as we navigate through the two extremities plotted on each of our respective maps? Someone with the guidance of a good Master or an insightful Astrologer, can attempt to navigate this map of life and help us in understanding the purpose of the journey.
A few days ago, I came to know of a young 14-year-old boy who sadly passed away. He took ill with only a fever. Then one morning the fever was gone, but the infection had doubled and attacked his heart leaving him breathless. He was gone in 15 minutes. The mother and father were unable to understand how this kind of sickness could take away their child? I visited the deceased boy’s house twice and was unable to hold myself back. I kept on thinking “if this is life, then it is very difficult to hold onto anything”. The shock is still fresh in my mind. I am still traumatized by the tears of his parents, relatives, and friends. As the family and friends spoke of their son’s goodness, they decided to give him a very joyful departure through prayer, food that he enjoyed and the music and the songs he loved to hear. Later I felt, if all is in God’s hands, he must want us to play these roles in the given lifetime and come back, in another one, for more experiences.

How much pain and sorrow, the near and dear ones get when someone so young passes. One who has not yet seen the world. I want to request God not to take the ones so young. Give them a full life. But sometimes I think, who all is he giving a full life to? Are they fulfilling their roles?
Do they understand their purpose, why they have come on this earth? Have they created examples showing their kindness, helpfulness, etc. Have they taken part in creating history? Or will they be known for their deeds, like Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein?
Now, I want to talk about another couple who were married for more than 40 years and very much in love. They did everything together to the extent they showered together, used the same toothpaste and toothbrush, and even fasted with and for each other during religious days for a particular gender. One day, the man fell in love with another woman. I ask which love is true? The wife, or the other woman? Man, and woman both are social animals and they will always go where the grass is greener.
When a woman goes into a relationship for her own pleasure, she should not break the house of another woman by snatching away her man. Likewise, a man should not break the heart of a woman he has loved so much by withdrawing suddenly and getting into another relationship.
Do not go into anybody’s life like a flood for when you come out of that person’s life, he or she will feel the drought, after the surging flood. The conditions will be the same on the ground as when a long bout of drought comes. There is a great Bollywood movie called Bajirao Mastani.
In the movie, in the scenes below, the wife of Bajirao, gives a great dialogue after she gets to know that her husband has got involved with another woman.
The dialogue-
“Had you asked for my life, I would have sacrificed it with a smile. But you stripped me of my pride.”

What happens when the one you love so much, whom you feel so proud off, suddenly does stupid things and hurts your pride for the sake of lust. This action of deceit and hurt is the biggest sin. It opens the doors to damnation. We forget and hurt those who truly love us. We must change this nature. Truth is God and we should not move away from the truth. Those who sway from the truth, create much unhappiness and despair. As the karmic consequences of this unfolds, those that are untruthful will not get true partners in future lives. They will not commit. And if they do, they will not get true love. Ditching true love with your partner is the greatest sin because the woman is a half portion of the man and man is the half portion of a woman. He is Adhnareshwar (half man and half woman).
Lord Shiva shows that man is not complete without the woman. Every man is half woman and vice versa.
Luckily in the coming trip you are visiting the temple where you can worship lord Shiva in the Adhnareshwar (half man and half woman) form and make this life and your future lives meaningful, joyous and fulfilling.
When people become attracted to someone else and then split a relationship, it can cause a lot of pain and trauma. You will see similar patterns in your life, with family, close friends, and associates, when they are parting ways. We do not know who is ours and for whom we are made for. Only God knows. God gives us strength to bear shock and traumas when people leave us.
This is something we all must go through. Sometimes differences come about due to the nature of planets transitioning from one sign of the zodiac to another. These things are very difficult to predict. A curse or past life karma can come from someone whom you previously harassed or deceived. The only way to manage these events is to worship in the church/temple/mosque, and read the Holy scriptures like The Bible/ Bhagavad
Gita/ Holy Koran/ Tora/ Guru Granth Sahib. Even Chanting helps greatly. These can bring peace in the situation by helping you get hold of yourself, and others. This is a form of atonement.
Spiritual texts are like an advanced cosmic literature which can be used to lead a good and prosperous life. My knowledge is from this literature and I want to share it with you so you can achieve your dreams. You will notice in the media, people become President of the United States of America, Prime Minster of the UK, or President of France. The blessings of the Almighty, your  Karma and changes in the star positions on your chart, can turn a Pauper into a King, and even a Businessman into a President.

The Shakti Mantra of The Ardhanarishvara is used for a happily married life and should be practised by the wife. This brings love and affection and makes the relationship  blissful. It is the Union of Shiva and Shakti, inseparable forever in life and death; birth after birth.
The wife should chant one Mala (108 chants) daily for 41 days. The mantra should be dedicated to any form of the Mother Goddess (Durga, Bhagvati, Mahalaxmi, Mother Mary, etc.). Should the woman have her menstrual cycle, it is advised she pause her
practise and continue once complete. Om Hum Jum Sah Ardhanaarishvararupe Hreem Swaha

Never destroy anyone’s beautiful relationship for the sake of your own purpose. This is the biggest curse and can only be washed away at Devprayag where the two rivers become one. I take people to Devprayag so they can remove the curses which they have accumulated for various reasons, even unknowingly, in this competitive world. Sometimes, for the sake of self-interest, even those who destroy other people’s careers and friendships get cursed. This only can be washed by Mother Ganga.
In 1982 at an Astrology Seminar, I met someone who introduced me to a very
wonderful young man of my age. He was a genius. His personality attracted me and he
became a close friend, just like a brother. We began a long journey together through our
spiritual, commercial and international work and we were brothers. In 1994, a business
opportunity brought new people into the ambit of our friendship who were calculative
and financially orientated. They slowly and quietly began to destroy our relationship and
we both stopped speaking to each other. While we both missed each other, we did not make contact until three years ago at a Christmas party. We met again at the following Christmas party, and then last year too. In our silences, we understood why we were not speaking to each other and that neither he nor I, was wrong. There was no reason why the friendship could not be started again.
The reason behind our parting, was a member of the group who joined us in 1995 and had a commercial interest in separating us through his whispers. Three years ago, I received news of his passing. While I was still upset and angry with him for ruining my friendship, I decided that life is nothing, and people play games for the sake of materialistic things or their own happiness. So, I went to the funeral and I prayed to God at the cremation ground, “Please forgive him for what he has knowingly and unknowingly done to others. He should go in peace and I also forgive him for the hurt he caused me.”
I have never spoken about this incident before but decided now is the time to share. I am seeing so many similarities over the past few months where people are operating for motives and gains, instead of working from the heart. Anyone can play games that cause hurt. Only good karma earned through blessings and kindness will remain with you on your soul journey. Many people have been on the earth and the ones that are remembered are those who have sacrificed and suffered, and those who were making them suffer. For those making others suffer, ask God to give them sense. They too are God’s children, so they should not hurt good people.

Think and live for others, the way Jesus did. The way Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther
King, Nelson Mandela, and Mother Teresa lived. Mother Teresa’s whole life was spent
alleviating suffering and from this she created a model of kindness. His Holiness
the 14th Dalai Lama is another good example  of someone who, against the odds, turned
his situation around and made an impact on the world.
Many people everywhere are working to make a positive difference. When light comes, darkness goes. Similarly, we need knowledge to take out the darkness that makes us think negatively. We must pray to God, look for the light, love, kindness, generosity, and take a vow “If I can’t do good things, I won’t do any harm.”
A very beautiful woman was having an affair with a married billionaire. One day the billionaire requested her to marry him. The billionaire did not have any children from his current wife and was using this as an excuse to get out of his marriage. They
were both unable to make a decision about how to move forward, so the woman invited me for a consultation over dinner to assist her to make a decision. I agreed to meet them and when they asked my view, I asked the woman, “what does your conscience say”. She told me, “my mind says, marry him but my soul says do not break someone’s home to make yours”. I advised her to listen to her soul and then come to a decision. She did, and the relationship broke.
After 2 years the girl found another billionaire, got married and settled and is living happily in another country. The rejected billionaire cried and promised that he will go back to his home, take care of his wife irrespective of whether she has children or not. He will adopt orphaned children and give them the love and care they need. Today the billionaire works with large charities and gives back to

As a teacher I work to get people to trust. I provide
guidance and support. This following phrase is from an
ancient Hindu scripture which became part of the “code
of conduct” for Hindu society. “Atithi Devo Bhava”,
which means “The guest is equivalent to God”. It is our
duty to show faith in our relationship with God, and
likewise, we must show faith in our relationship with
our guests. When creating new relationships, we should
have faith people will look after us. Faith in those
around us when travelling to another country, will
ensure we have a successful journey.
What defines business is faith. Faith is complete trust
or confidence. Without faith, there is no relationship.
Without a relationship there is no business.
The value of introductions is often understated, and
always performed in good faith. When someone has
faith in you, they will introduce you to others in their
lives in the hope you can both prosper. They attach the
strength of their good character to yours, and risk an
existing relationship for your possible benefit in life. To
behave inappropriately under these circumstances
disrespects all people in the relationship.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama says, “nothing is permanent”. Today’s friend whose purpose is
not being fulfilled, can become your enemy tomorrow. Today’s enemy, with your love, kindness,
and support, can become your friend tomorrow. Nothing is permanent. Everything is determined
based on situations controlled by planetary influences.
When your planetary timing is good, wrong events cannot disturb you. When your planetary timing
is bad, your behaviour can be correct, but the situation can still bring problems. Time is a big
lesson. There is no need to have a fear of humanity, have a fear of time.

Life is nothing. It is only a game of Snakes and
Ladders. Wise, clever, and blessed people
suffer but they eventually rise up the ladders
and come out from the pain and trauma.
Over the previous few years we all have lost
some good friends. Friendships broke and
people went far away from us. The fault is not
important but trying to resolve the issue is.
Resolving these issues allows real life to start
I can only tell you of the joy and happiness I
feel after renewing my friendship with my
friend whom I have known since 1982. This
event led me to experience both the pain of
losing, and joy of gaining this person in my life
once more.
I am inviting you all to visit Himalaya to fulfil
your dream and enjoy and pray to God, hopefully no more snakes in my life. I need a strong ladder
so I can climb without fear and with freedom.

Dargah of Hazrat Patte Shah
New Delhi, India
Entrance To The Dargah
Dargah Patte Wali Hazrat Shamsuddin Utawala Rahmattullah is inscribed on the marble plaque over the door.
Below it ‘Baab e Rahmat’ is written in bold letters, which means ‘door of mercy’. Hazrat Shamsuddin was given
the name ‘Utawala’ because the desires of people who visited him used to be fulfilled very quickly.
The steps to the green door is usually lined by alms – seekers in a state of stupor. They do not seek alms in the
name of Allah or Muhammah, alternatively, in the name of ‘Barkatkaari’.
He who showers ‘Barkat’; wellbeing, prosperity and blessings. At first sight you see a bare courtyard and
another green door in the corner to the left. Through the gate is the ceremonious Mazaar of Patte Shah’s
Dargah draped in green satin. Patte Shah was a contemporary to Hazrat Nizamuddin.
He is much lesser known but possessed equally extraordinary spiritual powers. The site of the Dargah was his
worship place.

Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Sahib
New Delhi, India
Hazrat Nizamuddin Sahib is the most revered Sufi Saint in Delhi. Sufism is the self-sacrificing experience and
actualisation of the truth.
The practice of Sufism is engrained in love and devotion. This is called the tarigat, the spiritual path or way
towards God.
Hazrat Nizamuddin believed and preached God could be attained only through love and service to humanity.
At the age of seventeen, Hazrat Nizamuddin became a disciple of Sufi saint Baba Farid.
Three years later, in 1258, he became the successor to Baba Farid and the caliph of the Chishti Order.
He established his Khanqah, or spiritual monastery, in the Ghiyaspur area of West Delhi. The area is now known
as Nizamuddin. The saint spent the rest of his days in prayer, renunciation and as a spiritual mentor.
Thousands of people became his devotees. His following included rich and poor, young and old, Hindus and
Hazrat Nizamuddin affirmed there is only one God. Various religions refer to him in different ways, but the
route to salvation is the same, provided it is grounded in love.

Sri Neem Karoli Baba Maharajji, Vrindavan
We will visit the Ashram of Baba Neem Karoli. Steve Jobs visited Baba when he was very young for blessing and
rejuvenation. Mother Teresa travelled to the Ashram with many nuns to receive blessings.
Maharajji established at least 108 temples, fed millions of people, advised governments and corporate leaders,
performed miracles, influenced modern American and Indian societies, brought grace into the lives of
countless suffering people. Amazingly, he remained out of the public eye.
Sri Neem Karoli Baba Maharajji, Vrindavan
There are believed to be three Maharajji’s. The historic Maharajji who was born and lived his life on earth. The
‘formless’ Maharajji, who we connect with through our ‘inner’ dimension. Finally, the Maharajji which still
exists today. The Maharajji who never died, who is constantly experienced by his devotees. We are just
beginning to learn about the impact Maharajji had on the world.

April 2018
Maharajji taught many people and these teachings continue today. The teachings were subtle and individually
touched people. Each devotee would receive the help or guidance they required. Maharajji would rush to
devotees when they remember him to help and protect them.
Maharajji seems to be continually visiting people and helping since he left his body in 1973. One devotee
proclaimed Maharajji has visited, helped, guided, fed, and called into service many people in the last forty
years. This is perhaps his greatest miracle. Maharajji never left. His presence remains.

The Taj Mahal is a UNESCO world heritage site and a wonder of the world. The iconic structure was built
between 1631 and 1648 and stands proudly next to the Yamuna river. The project took twenty-two years and
22,000 labourers from India and Central Asia to complete. Specialists were brought in from as far away as
Europe to produce the exquisite marble screens and pietra dura (marble inlay work) made with thousands of
semiprecious stones. The Taj Mahal is complemented by Mughal gardens and water features of incredible
beauty. People will experience the energy of the mausoleum which contains the tombs of Shah Jahan and his

Devaprayaga is considered one of the 108 most Divya or divine places in India and Nepal and is rich in
mythological heritage. Many Gods and Goddesses are present in this sacred place. It is the place where sage
Devasharma led his ascetic life, giving birth to its present name. It is one of the five sacred confluences in the
hills and is an essential place of pilgrimage for devout Hindus. Devaprayaga means “Godly Confluence” in
Sanskrit. As per Hindu scriptures, Devaprayaga is the sacred event of merging two heavenly rivers, Alakananda
and Bhagirathi, to form the holy Ganges. On a terrace in the upper part of the village is the temple of
Raghunathji, built of massive stones, pyramidal in form and capped by a white cupola.
King Bhagiratha induced the Ganga to descend from heaven to earth. Thirty-three crore Devatas (Gods)
descended from heaven along with her.They are believed to have made their home in Devaprayaga.
Devaprayaga is associated with the Trimurti — Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. Especially, Lord
Vishnu in his incarnations as Varaha, Vamana, Narsimha, Parashurama and Lord Rama.

River Ganga, Devprayag, Tehri Garhwal District
The Ganges is described in the Mahabharata as the ‘best of rivers, born of all the sacred waters’. The Ganges
is personified as the goddess Ganga. Ganga’s mother is Mena and her father is Himavat, the personification of
the Himalaya mountains.
The eternal life-stream of Indian culture, the clock whose ticking denotes time to even Mahakaal (Lord Shiva).
The chord which unites the four Yugs (eons). Ganga integrates herself into history, the beliefs and sometimes
even the hopes of India and its people.
Ganga, or the Ganges, the holy river of the Hindus, has its source at Gangotri in the Himalayas from where it
flows for 2,400 km to the Bay of Bengal. Ganga is the major river of the Indian subcontinent, associated in myth
and reality with the land and people of India.
It is said that when King Bhagiratha induced the Ganga to descend from heaven to earth, thirty-three crore
Devatas (Gods) descended from heaven along with her. They are believed to have made their home in
It is also believed that Devaprayaga was associated with the Trimurti —Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva and Lord
Vishnu, especially Lord Vishnu in his incarnations as Varaha, Vamana, Narsimha, Parashurama and Lord Rama.
There is a theory that before creating the universe, Lord Brahma prayed to Lord Vishnu in Devaprayaga for
10,000 years and received the Sudarshan Chakra (Disc of Lightning). Therefore, Devaprayaga is also known as
Brahma Teertha and Sudarshan Kshetra. Brahmakunda, near the confluence, is believed to be the place where
Lord Brahma meditated.
When the Vedic people shifted focus from the Indus to the Ganga, a myth evolved that Ganga would take on
all the sins of the world.

Thereafter, people bathe in her waters to cleanse themselves of sin. Gangajal (water of Ganga) is widely used
in religious ceremonies.
The holy sight of Ganges endows knowledge and numerous splendors.
The gravest of sins like Brahmahatya (killing of a Brahmin) and Gauhatya (killing of a cow) gets absolved by the
mere touch of Ganga’s holy water.
Lord Vishnu described the importance of river Ganges by saying the following to Garuda, the eagle God and
the vehicle of Lord Vishnu:
“thousands of man’s sins get destroyed by the holy sight of the Ganges, and he becomes pure by the touch of
the water of Ganges, by consuming it, or just by pronouncing “Ganga – Ganga”
Therefore, the Ganges is often called the savior of this world.

“The Ganga, especially, is the river of India, beloved of her people, round which are intertwined her
memories, her hopes and fears, her songs of triumph, her victories and her defeats. She has been a symbol
of India’s age-long culture and civilization, ever changing, ever flowing, and yet ever the same Ganga.”

Dhari Devi is on the banks of the Alaknanda River in the Garhwal Region of Uttarakhand state, India. Dhari Devi
is a manifestation of Goddess Kali, which according to local folklore changes in appearance during the day from
a girl, to a woman, and to an old lady.
The temple houses only the upper half of the Kali’s body called ‘Dhari’, while her torso or lower half is
worshipped as ‘Shree Yantra’ at Kalimath Temple near Guptkashi.
Dhari Devi is associated with Kedarnath as it was one of the stops for Shankracharya on his way to Kedarnath
She is also considered as guardian deity of Uttarakhand and is revered as protector of Char Dhams: Kedarnath,
Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamnotri. The village near the temple is name after godess Dhari and known as Dhari
The following is an interesting but unfortunate story about the Dhari Devi Temple:
On the evening of June 16, 2013, the idol of the goddess was uprooted from its ancient temple to make way
for a hydro-power project.
Hours after the idol was moved a cloudburst hit the Kedarnath Valley, washing away the entire shrine town
and killing hundreds of people.

Kalimath Temple is located in the Rudraprayag district at an elevation of 1800 ft on the bank of holy Mandakini
river. This temple is dedicated to goddess Kali Mata, where the lower part of her torso is worshipped.
The lower part of the Goddess Kali is worshiped here and the upper is worshiped in Dhari Devi. It is one of the
108 famous Shakti Peeth of India.
During the Navratras thousands of devotees visit the temple.
The people of this region use to come here for the blessing of goddess when they buy new vehicle, and new
married couples also come here for the blessing of goddess Kali.
Kali Math was established by Adi Shankaracharya – one of India’s most famous and illustrious saints and the
head of the Shankaracharya Tradition (Guru Dev’s lineage).
He had such a clear and powerful experience of Kali at this location that he established it as Kali Math.
It is widely regarded as a Sidha Peeth and Maha Peeth – meaning a place where Sidhis are perfected. Because
of this lively and fertile atmosphere, Yagyas performed here deliver maximum benefits.
The destination is ideal to perform Kali Yagya because it is a place of Ma Kali.

place in a village called Triyuginarayan.

As per the Nath community Guru Gorakhnath and their pupil, who are known as Sidh (Saint) meditated here
for long time. So many saints have been meditated here for a long time. Some of them are Baba Sitaram ji,
Baba Gopal Das Ji, Baba Narayan Das Ji & Saint Sevadas Ji. Falahari Baba Ji meditated here for so many years.
As per the historians Saint Sidhwa (14th Century) also meditated here who is worshipped as Sidh in this place.
The temple is surrounded by rushing Khoh river and the splendid mountains range. The temple was once
broken almost one third due to land slide a few years ago, but miraculously survived and now standing on top
of the town as an icon of the city. It is believed that Lord Hanuman himself supported temple structure on his
Uttarakhand, the land of gods, has been sanctified by the presence of spiritual vibration sages and seers have
experienced this divine bliss in totality since time immemorial. They have experienced the charms of solitude
and celestial bliss. The believer have been blessed with the sound of silence and bliss of the soul. To them, the
sound of silence was more effective and eloquent than the words themselves in the tranquillity of these far
flung hills.
When the aesthetic science touches some plane of intuition, it is called mysticism reaches the pinnacle of glory,
it is known as Spirituality.
History tells us that in the ancient time, Kotdwar was known as ‘Kaumud Dwar’ which was renamed as Kotdwar
during the British regime. It is said that this sacred place had been seat of penance of the seers of Nath sect.
In accordance with a belief, there is an account in Gorakh Purana that Guru Gorakhnath, the incarnation of the
Lord Shiva and the founder of Nath sect, happened to be an erudite in occult science who obtained a
commitment from Lord Hanuman regarding the safety and care of Sidhapeeth Shri Sidhabali. In observance of
the said commitment, the lord Hanuman takes care of the welfare of the devotees of Shri Sidhbali.
The union of the Lord Hanuman and Guru Goraknath, this santum sanctorum is called Shri Sidhbali Dham,
Saints like Baba Sita Ram ji, Baba Gopal Dasji and Seva Das ji mediated and observed penance at this holy place.
Shri Guru Nanak Deb ji – Sikh Guru, a great Yogi, a great Guru and a great sage. He is revered just as Jesus,
Mohmand, Buddha and Mahavira. He is known as a great saint who experienced God as well as the
messenger of God. He spent two days of life at Kotdwar when he was doing his Himalayan Journey.
Since I came to know about this place I felt we all should visit Kothdwar and get blessings.

Our Journey
The purpose of this trip is to achieve the ultimate goal of life for that we have to be grounded as well as selfdisciplined.
You have very wisely chosen your path, to be a student of spirituality and natural sciences now in this age and
stage of your life you need to have a disciplined and proper lifestyle. This will help you at least 75% of what
you are trying to achieve.
To enable the cultivation of this:
1. While interacting and connecting with others is important, we should endeavor to incorporate
a certain amount of peaceful silence, respect and privacy of others in the group.
2. Be open with yourself, try to discover yourself, as well as, try to listen to your inner voice. Be
honest with yourself.
3. If you want respect from others first you give them respect, then you will receive it from them.
4. Do not go so close to anybody that it gets difficult for you to get back to yourself. Do not enter
anyone’s life to flood him or her, when the drought will come, then neither you nor person will
not have the tears to bear it.
5. Communicate through the silence and try to understand other people through the silence.
6. Remember Forgiveness is an Ornament. Confession is a Fragrance.

Travel Mindfully
On this Pilgrimage, this journey of discovery, things for you to please consider are:
In Delhi and Agra, we will enjoy veg and non-veg meals. In the Himalayas we will have vegetarian food that will
enable us to feel fit to complete our journey, practicing abstinence and control. Vegetarian food is lighter as
well as helps keep the mind more in sync with the spiritual nature of the trip.
Maybe we are not able to do it despite several attempts. You should persist and pray to God for the strength
to resist and hope for success in the next attempt. Persistent like a spider climbing a wall, if the spider falls, it
tries again. The web of life always helps the spider to start again; it never falls to the ground. Take it easy;
when the time is right nature will help you. Prayers will help you. Ritual will help you. Faith will help you, and
most importantly, blessings will help you.
If you are a smoker, and need to smoke from time to time then please:
Do not smoke in public places because the Ministry of Health of India has restrictions that we should respect.
In my opinion, we should be particularly careful to avoid smoking in the following places:
1. On the bus.
2. During this journey we are going to various holy, high energy and powerful places such as Churches/
Temples/ Mosques and Tombs of Holy Souls.
Please appreciate that we do not request you to
not smoke because of ‘terms and conditions’ but
for good health and as a mark of respect. We
always speak on this. I know it is very difficult for
smokers to stop, because you are carrying this
habit for a long time. We all should try to give up
this habit as it is not good for health.
The Spiritual Journey to Himalayas
April 2018
Near these places and inside and outside of these places we have to totally avoid smoking because of holy
reasons and to show respect.
3. When we reach the Ganga River we have to be very – very careful regarding what we are doing.
First will pray to Holy Ganga
“Holy Mother – I am so grateful to you for giving me chance to visit you. I myself and my near and dear
and my ancestors those who are not in physical form on behalf of them I am praying to you, please
accept our prayer”.
As well as be very careful near the riverside, as the water current is very fast and many angels are
present around there. We should not do anything that can harm us. We have to be very – very careful
regarding everything we are doing.
We also have to be very alert to understand the soundings, to finally attain the ‘object of this journey’
Please do not smoke while at or walking to and from the Holy Ganges
No Alcohol and No Drugs and No Substance Abuse
No alcohol is permitted on the trip. You all know drinking is not a good habit especially while you are on a
spiritual journey as per many religions like Buddhism, Islam etc. While worshipping in spiritual places, we
should not be drinking alcohol so we do not disturb the many old and invisible holy souls at these
places. Although we may not see their annoyance with our eyes, we can experience it as hurdles and obstacles
if they come in our journey.
You also know we are on the journey to remove our obstacles, hurdles and blockages that have been bothering
us for ages through many lives so it does not make sense to create more while on the path. The same rules
apply to other forms of intoxication and substances – none of these are allowed on this trip. Stay pure – in
mind, in body and in soul for this journey to give you the most blessings.

“Expansion can only come with freedom from the inside. Internal freedom makes your
mind peaceful, joyful and expanded”.
– Shashi Dubey

St. Francis of Assisi
Born in Assisi, Umbria, Italy 1181, he founded the religious order known as the Franciscans and is the patron
saint of Italy.
St. Francis of Assisi abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christianity after reportedly hearing the
voice of God, who commanded him to rebuild the Christian church and live in poverty.
St. Francis is known for his compassion and for his deep connection to all beings particularly the animal
kingdom. During his lifetime, he cared for the sick and the poor.
St. Francis travelled the country side delivering sermons to humans and to the animals. He believed all
creatures were his brothers and sisters under God.

  1. I read this latest ‘advertisement’ this morning with incredulity. At first I thought surely no one of sound thinking could be taken in by this? However, the writer has in my opinion, rather clumsily tried to ensnare various vulnerable individuals who no doubt would pay anything if they thought there was an answer to be found for their problems by going on this junket. Quite aside from the fact that travelling to this part of India at this blistering time of year could be detrimental to health, I am appalled by the writer’s blatant and shameless attempts to coerce people on board his bus. He has targeted those who have suffered bereavement, the broken hearted left behind after a marriage or relationship breakup, those who cause such breakups, offering them the chance of spiritual redemption, the disenchanted and disappointed, the wrongdoers and the sceptics. He alluded to so many spiritual beliefs and individuals that it is actually quite headspinning! It’s like firing a ‘spiritual’ shotgun into a crowd with the hopes of the buckshot hitting a few willing targets. However, when condensed down, what I read here is a desperation to get people to sign up for a hellish bus tour. I may also be obtuse but I couldn’t see a price mentioned. No doubt it is not going to be an inexpensive venture. Once again, this is the exploitation and coercion of people who are already beleaguered, and a shameless attempt to succeed in financial gain and the manipulation of people to shore up a gargantuan ego. That’s cults for you!!!!!!
