Importance of Simhasth Mahakumbh in Vedas

The Indian culture, which is rich in spiritual, cultural and religious aspects; not only emphasises on refining the lifestyle of a man, but also gives equal stress on respect towards festivals and pilgrimage centres.

The world famous Simhasth Mahakumbh is a religious, spiritual and cultural mega festival where a person feels self-purification and welfare. Millions of devotees follow the tradition by attending Simhasth Mahakumbh and also perform the rituals recommended by Vedas.

Seers from all over world arrive here during Simhasth Mahakumbh and pilgrims find solace in their company in order to make their lives better. They look for Moksha (salvation) which means freedom from all kinds of bonds and attachment. In Indian culture, Moksha is the ultimate goal of life when a person gets rid of the cycle of life and death.

The seers assemble at one place leaving behind their “Tap Sadhna” for the welfare of people. They share their experiences and wisdom with the common people.

The assemblage of Rishi, Maharishi, Sadhu, Sant, and scholars in Simhasth Mahakumbh strengthens the spiritual tradition of the nation. This helps develop the religious atmosphere in the country.
