Tirtha is a Sanskrit word which means “Crossing place, a Ford or a Transit” which usually refers to a pilgrimage site or a holy place. It is believed that liberation can be achieved just by visiting those holy places. It is also believed that Tirtha not only removes suffering from one’s life but also uplifts one spiritually and bestows individual an elevated perspective of the Wholeness of life.

Nepal has been one of the most visited pilgrimage site among Hindus, Buddhist and Jains for centuries. It is also known as the birth place of Buddha and the land of Tantric practices. Many ascetics and Yogis used to visit the Himalayas of Nepal to gain spiritual enlightenment.

A commonly observed phenomenon is that the majestic Himalayas reflect the insignificance of the “Self” leading to the dissolution of the ego and opening the path to the spirituality.

The Swayambhu is very much pleased to organize the Tirtha / retreat in foothills of Himalayas in Nepal. The purpose of this retreat is not to provide a week of escape from day to day activities but to give a glimpse to the Wholeness of spirituality that is engrained in Nepalese tradition and culture and leave an imprint in seekers so that one sees the grandeur of life and celebrates it in each and every moment of life.

We will learn and understand the essence of the spirituality through Meditation, Yoga, Homa, symbols, rituals , Imageries, Visiting to Mandir /Temples and transform ourselves spiritually thus transforming all aspect of life.
