“We are in the land of birth of the Ganga, and this noble river, which we had known and loved so well in its rich and stately maturity, appeared before us now in its eager and joyful youth and its bubbling and gurgling childhood”    -Jawaharlal Nehru (1938)

“Beyond all configuration and strife, beyond all destruction and violence stands the eternal concept of spirit.” -Svetoslav RoerichSilent, serene, sentinels of India, the Himalayas have attracted the poets’ imagination since times immemorial. Kalidas believed the mountain stretched from coast to coast and wrote: ‘There is a mountain in the north ensouled by Divinity, named the Himalayas, the king of all mountains. Stretching from the east to west coast, it is located on the earth as a measuring rod’

In the heart of these mighty mountains, touching Tibet, the roof of the world, in the north and the great Indo-Gangetic plain in the south, is an area, known, over the centuries, as ‘paradise on earth and the most glorious temple of Nature’. In magnificence and stupendous sublimity, there is no other mountainous region in the world that can be compared with the Uttarakhand Himalayas – a region underlaid by rich mineral deposits, still almost untouched, and a beauty that is unexcelled

Here, which they designated “Dev-Bhoomi”, came ancient Aryans to seek divine knowledge amidst the mighty ranges of the west, and towering peaks of the east, with their unparalleled beauty and grandeur scenery of indescribable grandeur, of a magnificent variety, this ‘Abode of Gods’ is studded with places of pilgrimages and shrines. Under the towering peaks were born pure thoughts in places unsullied by
the selfish passions generated in the struggle for existence and self-gratification.

Here, in the quest of the spirit, which remains the supreme effort of mankind, came the great teachers of mankind to receive in that rarified atmosphere above the turmoil of life, some of their greatest revelations explaining the mysteries of Nature, long before science was able to explain them, the atomic theory, the theory of relativity and vibration. Maya and Tattavarms, proclaimed telepathy long before the human brain was found to emit waves. Enclosed in the folds of the mighty ranges are memories of the great Gautam Buddha in search of salvation for mankind. Rishis-Vyas, Narada and Agastya seeking inspiration to carry down to struggling humanity, while from Europe came the great Pythagoras and Apollonius of the Tiana who certainly contacted these illumined men, when they came to India in search of wisdom. Along the winding valleys and gorges, Guru Charaka gathered his precious healing herbs, their qualities also described by Huen Tsang in 1300 A.D. in his travelogue on the sojourn in India
