Pilgrims with Nature Cure Staff

We pilgrims embarked on this Pilgrimage of Peace with a desire to experience the Divine, present in the spirit and work of Gandhi and in the people, culture and land of India. This desire was deeply fulfilled.

Gandhi said: “My life is my message. You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Our pilgrimage was a life-changing experience, and all the words and pictures on these web pages can just say so little about our experience.

Pilgrims and our guides will be adding more to this page as it, like a seed planted in a garden, grows and bears fruit. There will be many more pictures, articles, comments, products and information to come. Please feel free to add your comments below and on the pictures.
