- HINDU PILGRIMAGE - THE TEERTHAS : A JOURNEY THROUGH THE HOLY PLACES OF HINDUS ALL OVER INDIA
DetailsAs humans, we lead a life full of struggle and strife. During trying moments, we might knowingly or unknowingly indulge in actions that may be sinful. After a certain time, the wrong actions start weighing us down, and our conscience prods us to atone for our sins. That is when we consider visiting a teertha, where we cango and ask for forgiveness. Such a spiritual journey is termed as a pilgrimage or teertha yatra, which is one of the distinguished facets of Hinduism.Though, undertaking a religious journey is not mandatory in this religion, still a number of Hindus visit the teerthas every year in search of peace and enlightenment. Most of the teerthas are located in calm and secluded places surrounded by the pristine beauty of nature. These places may be near a water source, a mountain or a forest. Their environs are further sanctified by the presence of the holy men and their regular mantra chanting. Such places provide immense peace to the soul.The Teerthas takes you on a mental journey to such spiritual places in India. The book discusses in detail Chaar Dhaam,Himalayan Chaar Dhaam, Sapt Puri, Dwadash Jyotirlingam, PanchSarovar, Sapt Sarita, Divya Desam, Shakti Peetha, Yatras and also some of the famous temples in India.
