Swami NadaBrahmananda's Report
North American Pilgrimage for
Click here for the Pilgrim Club
It is also hoped that a new Universal Pilgrimage trail around North America will be established, connecting many sites and shrines of general spiritual interest. The idea is to provide a trail, which may be joined and left at many different points, according to the pilgrims' time available. Eventually, it is expected that proper shelters/accommodation and food etc., will be available to the general public and pilgrims throughout the trail. Since the sites of interest will encompass many different religions and spiritual traditions, people will choose their own places to visit and worship.
Thus, instead of taking a traditional vacation, people will be able to go on a pilgrimage instead! If you are interested in news concerning a North American Pilgrim route follow this link to the Pilgrim Club.
Swamiji is traveling with few possessions, eating only when food is proffered, accepting shelter only when offered, as is the case in the far east when monks take to the road. He will be giving teachings on Meditation and Yoga, from time to time upon request. Some workshops on Discovering your Past Lives, seeing the Human Aura, Dream Analysis (from the spiritual point of view) and Spiritual Healing will be given from time to time.
Departure was October 1, 1999 from Victoria, B.C. and Swamiji is travelling south through the states of Washington, Oregon and California, across Arizona, Texas and Louisiana into Florida. Some excursions into Mexico to visit sites of pilgrimage will also be undertaken. From there he will travel north, up the eastern seaboard of the USA through the Carolinas, Virginia, New Jersey, New York and New England into the maritime provinces of Canada and across Canada. As the reader can imagine, no exact dates are possible (nor desired), on such a long pilgrimage. Part of this pilgrimage is also to experience and to affirm the essential goodness in people everywhere and thus to celebrate the Glory of the Divine reality.
Updates on Swamiji's progress and activities will be posted here, when they are available. Please note that although Swamiji will do his best to reply to all who write him, it may be impossible from time to time to do so. Letters to him may be sent by clicking below.
Should you be aware of any sites which you believe could be included in a list of "Spiritual sites of Pilgrimage, Places of Miraculous Headings and Shrines of North America", please e-mail us at the address below. Although, clearly it may be impossible to visit them all, Swamiji will do his best.
Hari Om and loving Namaskars (salutations) to all.
