Ron in the Ganges at Vashishtha's Cave

A little above Rishikesh in the Himalayan foothills is Vashishtha guha, a sacred cave where many enlightened yogis have lived and done penance for thousands of years. More recently it was the residence and secluded place of spiritual practice of Swami Purushottamananda, a monk of the Ramakrishna mission who attained the supreme God-realization here.
The cave is filled with tremendous spiritual energy. As we entered this sacred space we experienced deep peace and spiritual connection with the liberated saint who had been living here for decades. We sat for an hour in silent communion with the divine.
The magnificent scenic location of the cave, on the banks of the Ganges, is across two hundred meters of boulder strewn river bed. In awe we reverently sat by the river for a while with our feet bathed in its holy waters.
