Can I get a darshan (interaction) of the sages at the Kumbh Mela?

For individuals who want to closely study the practises of Sadhus, or orthodox religious devotees, the Kumbh Mela is an incredible opportunity. The Sanskrit word for “seeing” is darshan. The interaction between the Sadhus and the general populace is what it is.

These sadhus, who follow several Hindu deities, travel continuously for days and are distinguished members of various akharas, or religious sects. They do snan by the river after arriving at Kumbh Mela and subsequently, stay in their tents. Sadhus live a simple lifestyle. They live their lives in the service of their All-Powerful and are devoid of materialistic aspirations. Because of this, the pilgrims are very interested in talking to these gurus to get spiritual advice and understanding.

Darshan, or private conversations with these devoted followers, is an unforgettable experience. The sessions are closely watched by the authorities to make sure that nothing happens that could make the sadhus angry or hurt their religious feelings.
