Kamakhya - Vaishno Devi of the East

Make sure you make it part of your travel agenda.


Kamakhya to become `Vaishno Devi` of the east

The famous pilgrim centre of Kamakhya in Assam would now be given a facelift to make it the `Vaishno Devi of the North-East` for religious tourists from across the world.

The Assam government has firmed up plans to develop this seat of the mystique tantra cult, also regarded in religious texts as the seat of the `shakti pith`, as the centre point of its unexplored religious tourism circuit.

"Kamakhya has all the ingredients of becoming another Vaishno Devi. It is not only the greatest shrine of the tantric cult but also appeals to tourists for the beauty of its scenic surroundings," Commissioner and Secretary of Assam government`s tourism department Suresh Chandra Panda told here.

Welcome to the spirituality blog






This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
