A power journey is the pilgrimage into the unknown where we have the opportunity to illuminate the dark corners of our mind, clear the cob webs of the past and discover who we truly are, our authentic selves.  By touching the power spots and holy lands of India, we accelerate our spiritual growth and get a glimpse of the true reality.

Join Ramakrishna,  Don Jose Ruiz (author, The Fifth Agreement) and Gaya on this powerful journey into the heart of India.

We will land in Mumbai and then head to Shirdi to receive the blessing of the powerful saint, Shirdi Sai Baba.  From there we'll travel to  sacred Rishikesh where Mother Ganga and Father Shiva come together in divine communion and then to Kolkata for the blessings of Paramahamsa Yogananda and Kali Ma in Dakshrineswar, the home of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.

Cost: $4060 per person

Nasik

Nov 6th        Breakfast in Mumbai and depart for Tryambakeshwara Templ in Nasik Temple

On the way to Shirdi we will stop in Nasik and visit a famous temple where the Tryambakeshwara Shiva Lingam resides and is worshipped. This temple is one of the 12 Jyothir Shiva Lingams, the holiest and most powerful temples of Shiva. This temple is unique in that the Shiva Lingam here is one of a kind as it is created from three lingams, each one representing one of the three aspects of God (Brahma, the Generator; Vishnu, the Operator; and Shiva, the Destroyer). This Shiva lingam is Svayumbhu, which means self created, i.e. it is not man-made.

On June 3, 2017 a payment of $1605 is due in addition to the $750 deposit for a total of $2355.00 which is nonrefundable. On October 3, 2017 the balance owing of $1605 is due and payable and the total amount of $3960 is non refundable. Any cancellation notifications must be made to Allyless,Inc in writing. We strongly recommend you purchase Travel Cancellation Insurance if there is a chance you may have to cancel for any reason.

Allyless INC reserves the right to cancel any trip, prior to departure, for any reason whatsoever, including an insufficient number of participants or logistical problems (e.g. acts of God, war, strikes, etc.), which may impede trip operations. The refund of all payments as described in the paragraph below shall release Allyless I NC and any designated facilitators or associated staff from any further liability. A trip cancellation due to an insufficient number of participants would normally occur at least a month prior to departure, unless acts of God, war, strikes or other events impede our departure causing large numbers of participants to cancel participation on the journey prior to departure.

Allyless INC must make substantial payments to suppliers (including hotels and providers of land and air travel within India) far in advance of the scheduled date on which we embark. If a trip is cancelled due to forces beyond our control (acts of God, war, labor strikes, earthquake, flooding, etc.), Allyless INC will promptly refund the portion of the trip cost not advanced to suppliers (including any moneys set aside for airfare). Allyless I NC will use our best efforts to recover advance payments as promptly as possible, and we will refund to you the amount recovered, if any. However, Allyless INC does not guarantee recovery of any or all of the advance payments made, and our use of best efforts to recover these payments will not include the institution of any legal proceeding in foreign lands. This policy applies to a trip cancellation by client choice following any necessary increase in trip costs.

 

Baggage insurance, tour operation carrier default protection insurance, and trip cancellation insurance would be at the sole discretion of the participant and paid by such. Be advised that the travel program member has the opportunity to purchase such insurance as protection against certain risks of travel to the planned destination. Travel program members are advised that travel insurance covers only what is included as stated in the travel insurance brochure.

The airlines or transportation companies concerned are not held responsible for any acts, omissions or events during the time passengers are not on board their planes or conveyances. The passenger contract in use by the carriers concerned, when issued, shall constitute the sole contract between the airlines or transportation companies and the purchase of this travel program and/or passengers.
