Sindhu meets the Sangam as Parmarth Niketan welcomes the Dard Aryans
Vibrant colours, the beauty of nature, and uplifting waves of sound enveloped the ashram as the Dard Aryans of Ladakh made a spontaneous visit to the ashram. Smiles abounded as Pujya Swamiji Chidinand Saraswatiji and Sadhvji Bhagawatiji greeted the group with open arms and open hearts. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji – Muniji and Sadhvi Saraswati Ji were presented with traditional garlands and scarves. The Dard Aryans brought water from the Sindhu river which was mixed with the water from the sangam for a sacred world water blessing ceremony at the camp, an act emblematic of the Indian tradition of co-existence and tolerance. Dard Aryans are custodians of India’s ancient heritage and the ashram celebrated their unique traditions and culture.
