Located in the Madhya Pradesh state of central India, Khajuraho has been a stronghold of tantric practices for untold ages. Recognized as a World Heritage Site, Khajuraho is most well known as the home of a complex of 22 magnificent temples covered with orntate stone carvings depicting tantric cosmology and symbolism. The shrine of the 64 Yoginis at Khajuraho is described in Swami Rama’s autobiography, Living with the Himalayan Masters, as the site where he first got a glimpse of the Divine Mother.
In 2009, the Himalayan Institute acquired a 25-acre piece of land at Khajuraho in the forested foothills of the Vindhya Mountains. Nestled between two mountains and a national forest, this location is being developed into a spiritual retreat center. Guests will have the opportunity to visit this campus during the 2013 Kumbha Mela.
