Historic melodies, mystic music and the romance of the river.
Varanasi, with its gentle, unhurried way of life and ancient wisdom, is the perfect place to find that elusive peace which we constantly seek in the frenzy of our routine lives. The gentle rhythm of the river provides the perfect balm for frayed nerves even as Kabir’s philosophy envelopes us in its essential inclusiveness.
For two days, the Festival becomes the focal point with transcendental music on the historic ghats. As you take in the sights, you will find ash-smeared sadhus singing in deep sonorous voices, devotees milling about to bathe in and worship the eternal river, people lost in complex yoga postures, and tea stalls selling steaming kullads of chai.
Whether you come alone or with friends, you can look forward to making connections with kindred souls from around the world. Soak in the music, walk the winding alleys, hunt the bazaars for wooden toys, exquisite weaves and crafts, and spoil your taste buds with a range of sharp, tangy and sweet ‘Banarasi’ treats on the Festival menu.

Kabir, one of India’s most celebrated mystic-poets who lived in the 15th century, spread a philosophy of simplicity through his poetry and showed ordinary people a syncretic and tranquil way of life. Varanasi, also known as Benares, one of India’s oldest and most venerated cities, situated on the banks of the holy Ganga, was home to Kabir.Play Video
