“Machu Picchu is a trip to the serenity of the soul, to the eternal fusion with the cosmos; where we feel our fragility. It is one of the greatest marvels of South America. A resting place of butterflies in the epicentre of the great circle of life. One more miracle.”
Located 120 km northwest of Cusco, the Inca city of Machu Picchu lay hidden from the world in dense jungle covered mountains until 1911. This ‘Lost City’ is one of the world’s archaeological jewels and was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981, followed by a recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. In 2007, Machu Picchu was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Machu Picchu is one of the places linked to the energy centers of the world. The Incas built Machu Picchu in a particular place, high in the Andes. The place itself channels the energy and allows people to experience something that just does not belong to our world.
Team Mohanji lovingly welcomes you to this holy pilgrimage “Machu Picchu with Mohanji”, a journey to one of the most spiritually aligning places that opens and resonates with ALL of the Chakras.
Kailash is Shiva, male energy. Machu Picchu is Shakti, the feminine energy. So usually they say that there is a completion in going to both of these places. So we are looking to visit both Kailash and Machu Picchu every year now. Machu Picchu is probably not as tough as Kailash. But it has got a great significance as the power center. It is said that a lot of beings from other locations have come there and are coming there. Still, some of the beings are drawn there. Some of them even supported the Mayan civilization. This is what is told, this is the history.
Apart from that, it’s the Shakti energy. So if you go there, you get highly rejuvenated in the Shakti path – iccha shakti, jnana shakti, kriya shakti – the power of will, the power of knowledge, the power of action.
These are two power points which we would like to visit every year.
Machu Picchu is one of the world’s great spiritual destinations. Is there any spiritual destination in the world with a more evocative and mysterious reputation than Machu Picchu in Peru? The answer is complicated, for while much is known about Machu Picchu, many mysteries remain. Machu Picchu is one of the wonders of the world, a perfect blend of architectural and natural beauty. Its physical location is remarkable, occupying a narrow promontory of land surrounded by mountain peaks and encircled on three sides by a loop of the Urubamba River. The site’s buildings fill much of the space between two peaks: Machu Picchu (meaning “old peak”) and Huayna Picchu (meaning “young peak”).
So why do pilgrims from around the world flock to this isolated site? More than the physical beauty, there is ample evidence that from its very beginning, Machu Picchu had great spiritual significance. Its location was likely chosen in part because of its proximity to mountains and a river considered sacred by the Incas. Its plazas include multiple shrines, temples and carved stones, some of which are oriented to astronomical events such as the winter and summer solstices and spring and fall equinoxes.
Machu Picchu formed the cosmological and sacred geographical center for a vast region. It was the hub of a spiritual web, connected to other holy sites in the region and to celestial bodies in the sky, surrounded by deities who lived in the surrounding mountain peaks and the river far below. Perhaps that’s why it’s easy to feel the pull of the sacred at Machu Picchu, as if you are also being drawn into that web.
There are only a few holy sites in the world where so many factors come together: physical grandeur, architectural beauty, and an interweaving of sky, mountains, jungle, river and clouds. That is Machu Picchu, as dazzling now as when it was a jewel in the crown of the Inca Empire.
A visit to Machu Picchu is to be considered as a very sacred pilgrimage. People who have gone to past yatras with Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji can attest to the spiritual transformation that it has brought about in their lives. It is important that people with the right attitude and bhaav (devotion) join the trip so that the group energy is conducive to everyone’s spiritual upliftment. In particular, it is our endeavour to create a encouraging spiritual space in the spirit of sangha (spiritual family) where the participants support each other in their transformations to derive the maximum benefit from this pilgrimage.
Hence, we would prefer to avoid tourists (spiritual or otherwise) since there are several avenues available outside that cater to that segment. People deeply connected to Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji through his various activities conducted globally or people deeply connected to Shri Sai Baba, Shiva or other masters who, repeating again for emphasis, are focused on their spiritual growth.
