Varanasi is an epitome of spiritual grandeur which retains the legacy of a perfect blend of myth, legend and religion. “Older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together” are the words by Mark Twain that rightly describes it all.

But again – words, photographs, videos and more can only do so much justice – to get the true essence of Varanasi, one needs to walk those streets, absorb the vibes, get immersed in the hustle bustle – the true spirit of this age old holy land can only be experienced in person.

Having said that, this video here is a humble tribute to the spiritual and philosophical shades of Banaras, and there couldn’t be better words to fill in – than that of Osho.

Transcript :

“You are living in a tremendously beautiful dream. You have to be awake about it, then only a gratefulness arises. I call that gratefulness true religion.

All that you need is a deep gratitude towards existence. He need not believe in god, he need not believe in heaven and hell. Just a simple phenomenon, a deep felt gratitude that this existence would have been missing something without you. That this vast existence needed you, no one else. And your place, was empty before you, will be empty after you”
