A day in the life of Mohanji

Experience the Transforming Energy of Ancient Wisdom Peru

Often referred to as the ‘Archaeological Capital of the Americas’, Cusco is a beautiful city riddled with contrasts between the indigenous styles and the modern western world. It is these contrasts that have given Cusco its rare beauty.

The first thing that hits the newly arrived visitor to Cusco are the Inca walls; enormous granite blocks carved to fit together perfectly without the aid of mortar beds. Many of the walls were simply built upon during the construction of a new Spanish city. Its a tribute to the Incas that their anti seismic design has survived the test of time while the Spanish colonial architecture has been rebuilt several times following a wave of earthquakes that have hit the city. Located at an altitude of 3,360m above sea level, Cusco was referred to as the ‘Navel of the World’.

Machu Picchu with Mohanji team warmly welcomes you to this wonderful & picturesque Inca Land, a place that truly resonates with the quote “Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by those that take your breath away”.

APPLY NOW


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.

In keeping with that objective, the registration process for Machu Picchu with Mohanji 2017 will be as under:
