Yoga Sadhna India is a wonderful place. I am having here a wonderful experience practicing Yoga. My teacher Kapil is very knowledgable and believe in teaching yoga in a correct manner. He really makes me understand the essence of Yoga. Sadhna Mam"s anatomy and philosophy classes makes me to understand the Yogic life in the deeper context. It is one of the best Yoga school.

Rishikesh is a municipal city in Dehradun district of Uttarakhand state in India. It is found on the foothills of the Himalayas and popularly identified as the Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas. It is situated at about 25 km from Haridwar and 43 km from capital Dehradun. Haridwar is at 210 km from Delhi. Rishikesh also spelled as Hrishikesh, Rushikesh or Hrushikesh.

Rishikesh means 'lord of the senses' and that is another name of Lord Vishnu . Lord Vishnu appeared to 'Raibhya Rishi', under a mango tree. It is a legend that when fierce fire broke out here, Lord Shiva was angry with Lord Agni and cursed him. Then Agni, fire god, begged Lord Shiva to pardon him and got rid of his sins. Hence it came to be known as 'Agni Tirtha'.

There are five sections surrounding not only the town but also hamlets and settlements on both sides of the river Ganges. They are Rishikesh itself, the commercial and communication hub; the sprawling suburb Muni Ki Reti or the "sands of the sages"; Sivananda Nagar the home of Swami Sivananda Ashram plus Divine Life Society founded by Swami Sivananda. The temple sections of Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula, assorted Ashrams around Swargashram on the eastern bank. The Ganga Aarti is performed at sunset at the Triveni Ghat. It is most popular and pleasing to witness. Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is traced at 28 km from Rishikesh, in the middle of forest. It is another popular pilgrimage spot. The ‘Vashishtha Guha', (Cave of Sage Vashishtha), is at 21 km up from the town by the Ganges, which is also interesting point to be visited here.

'Lakshman Jhula‘is a world famous rope way bridge across river Ganga, using a jute rope. The jute-rope bridge was replaced by iron-rope suspension bridge in 1889, and after it was washed away in the 1924 floods, it was replaced by the present stronger bridge. Another similar suspension bridge Ram Jhula was built in 1986 near Shivananda Nagar.

The Holy Ganges flows through Rishikesh. This is the place from where river Ganga leaves Shivalik mountains in the Himalayas to flow into the plains of northern India. There are many ancient temples and some of them are newly built along the banks of the Ganges here. Among the ancient temples are Shatrughna Mandir, Bharat Mandir, Lakshman Mandir said to have established by Adi Shankaracharya. Shatrughna Temple is located near Ram Jhula and Lakshman Mandir is near to Lakshman Jhula. I saw an idol of Lord Laxman at Nasik and another one at this Laxman Jhula. Both are similar and attractive.

Rishikesh is the via point to the Char Dham pilgrimages namely Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. It is famous for ayurvedic healing. You will see number of ayurvedic centres conducting classes on ayurvedic medicine to ayurvedic doctor students.

Rishikesh is called by its nickname "The world capital of Yoga", as there are several yoga centres to keep on attracting tourists, specially foreign tourist, particularly because of dear Dollars.

Sadhu or Sanyasi or a monk is one who has renounced the attachment for worldly things. He keeps himself away from the attraction of money, wealth, women and property. He is above temptation. But for my shocking surprise what I saw here is just the opposite. Every Sadhu either on the streets or in Ashram, is seen in saffron clad, neatly dressed and the fore head well decorated to indicate that he has acquired certain occult power, holding Thrishul or any other sacred weapon to sentimentally attract the visitors. These show masters are busy in attracting and pleasing their customers to make money. Ulagam palavidam. Means the world is of many varieties. Adi Shankaracharya said in Bhajagovindam that “Udara nimitham Bahukrutha vesam”, meaning thereby “for the sake of stomach man wears so many garbs”. So also these many Sadhus here, as I saw them.
I saw some of them make a show or pretence and hypocrisy in their approach of foreign visitors.

It is said that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to attainment of moksha. Here every one takes a dip in the holy river Ganga that has been flowing through it. There are many ancient ashrams like 133 year old Kailash Ashram Brahmavidyapitham. This is an institution dedicated to preserve and promote the traditional Vedantic Studies. Rishikesh is also a Gateway to the World Heritage Site Valley of Flowers, National Park , which is known as the 8th Wonder of the World

Rishikesh as appearing the Adventure Capital of India for the adventure seekers as Rishikesh is the suggested place for starting their trekking expeditions to the Himalayan Peaks and for the White River Rafting. The International Yoga week attracts participation from across the world that is held here, every year during February on the banks of the holy Ganga.

Rishikesh is a vegetarian city by law, as well as an alcohol-free city. Rishikesh has also banned use of plastics bags by shopkeepers and vendors.
Rishikesh is situated at 225 km from Delhi on the Delhi-Badrinath National Highway. This Sivananda Ashram is at about 3 km from Rishikesh, on the way to Badrinath. This province is well known as 'Devabhoomi,' region of gods. The neighbourhood around the Ashram is known as ‘Muni-Ki-Reti’. From Haridwar it is at 45 km from Dehra Dun, which is the capital of the state of Uttarakhand.

However right time to visit Rishikesh would be February, March, August-October. May June is quite hot at Rishikesh temperature touching + 35 °C. You will have to cross Ram Jhula to reach Swarg Ashram (On the other side of river Ganges). From Delhi there are many trains to Haridwar, some of them are Shatabdi Express, Jan Shatabdi, AC Special Express, and Mussoorie Express. Accommodation and food are available plenty.
