India is a secular country where people from all religions co-exist peacefully. The people from all main religions of India like the Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism and Christianity have great faiths in their religion and there are many places of worship in the country, some often called as pilgrimage spots for the different religions.

The major Hindu place of worship or the pilgrimage spot of high importance are the Vaishno Devi temple, the Amarnath Cave temple, and the Tirupati Balaji temple. Since time immemorial, the Indian soil has seen the walks of gods and godesseses and their blessings to the people. Come and see with your eyes in Shirdi located in Maharashtra, the life of the Lord Shri Sai Baba who spent the whole of his life in the well being of all, the poor and the needy. The Indian people have seen the thousands and lacs of miracles the gods performed.

The abundance of holy, spiritual and pilgrimage destinations provide ample proofs about India being a real spiritual country. The roots of Indian culture are strong enough as our forefathers have inculcated the sentiments of being religious. The lessons of spiritualism are taught right from the childhood. Most of the people in India are vegetarians, they believe in karma and they keep on celebrating the fairs and festivals related to different faiths and religions and you will be surprised to know that the number of festivals is almost the same as the number of days in a year. So, it’s true to say that Indian people celebrate festivals, mostly of them being religious around the year. People from all walks of life practice different religions.

India and its people show the true essence of life. They know what a human being should do to attain and live a good and peaceful life by being spiritual and using minimum resources. The people in India do not believe in materialism. And whether they keep on doing all the things related to materialism, they have never forgotten to remember god. As money is necessary for living lives full of respect and self sufficiency, yet the people do not become attached to the materialistic things.

According to Hindu mythology, the basic principle of a person should be to attain salvation or “moksha”. It means we have got this beautiful human body after many struggles and “yonis” or different births as creatures, so the person should do anything and everything to achieve salvation or avoiding “rebirth” and going to god forever. India has a history and unique culture that goes back to 5000 years. As India is one of the oldest civilizations of the world, it has seen the birth of many civilizations. The Hindu holy and sacred books of Vedas, Upnishads and Shrimad Bhagwad Gita are having solutions for any and every crisis of this world. The Indian values are the best values a person can have and the world must take inspiration from the people from India.

A pilgrimage tour in this land of divinity will bring the faces of Indian devotions and you will be moved by seeing the faiths and beliefs of the Indians for the gods and goddesses, who can have a name or identity. Your inner spirituality and devotion is sure to attain a new height after a pilgrimage tour in India and you will get the enlightenment in your soul and body which you might have searched for all your life.
