Hollywood celebs 'to participate in India's Kumbh Mela'

Navada (US), Thu, 27 Aug 2009 ANI

Nevada (US), Aug 27 (ANI): Rumour has it that some Hollywood celebrities will partake in the Haridwar Kumbh Mela, termed as biggest spiritual gathering on earth, in India during January-April next year.


The names of the celebrities, however, are being kept under wraps.


For international celebrities, business tycoons and other VVIPs, many luxury camps with all-weather cottages will be set-up on the banks of holy river Ganga.


The Mela is expected to see an influx of about 100 million people.


Some American tour companies are promoting the tour for about 9,000, excluding airfares.


Rajan Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, has suggested that Hollywood celebrities should go to the Mela as pilgrims and not as tourists.


In addition to immersing in holy Ganga waters, Zed has urged the celebrities to explore the rich philosophy, which Hinduism offers.


Kumbh Mela will be held from January 14 to April 28 and includes 11 bathing dates in between, at Haridwar.


A belief system in India is that all sins/evils committed by the Mela pilgrims and their ancestors back to the 88th generation will be washed away forever by a dip in Ganga during these dates and that they will achieve salvation and emerge regenerated and healed. (ANI)
