Bhakti Tours to India

Sridhar has been visiting and traveling throughout India since 1980 and enjoys personal relationships with some of the most revered teachers from the East and West. His deep, unparalleled association with these saints allows you access that many Western visitors do not have!

If you want to spend two weeks on a spiritual journey to India, see and learn as much possible while having everything set up and taken care of for you, and experience it all in a small group of like-minded yogis, then this is the tour for you. We dive deep into our personal sadhana with daily yoga, satsang, associations with great teachers and saints, seva (selfless service), three vegetarian meals per day, and wonderful hotel and ashram accommodations. The schedule is full and exciting, but we also make sure you have time for shopping, journaling or just relaxing together with a cup of chai.  

  • Immerse yourself in yogic lifestyle & transformational study

  • Connect with a conscious community & global sangha

  • Awaken your travel palate with an authentic experience of India

  • Learn practical tools and techniques to ignite a lifetime of sustainable and inspired practice

  • Dive into the roots of Bhakti with sacred conversations on the wisdom traditions of India from guest teachers

  • Experience peace and healing through a Bhakti fusion of sacred chanting and selfless service

  • Share the experience with magical kirtan artists Vijay and the Kirtaniyas, Fantuzzi, Gaura Vani and more!
