Pilgrimage: Awaken a New Reality

Pilgrimage and the Three Pillars of Yoga

What makes a pilgrimage such a profound tool on the path of spiritual unfoldment? Ransom Hare explains the unique relationship between the sacred space within us and those outside of us. Learn how embarking on a transformative journey to sacred shrines, combined with practicing the three pillars of yoga—tapas (self-effort), svadhyaya (self-study), and Ishvara pranidhana (offering the fruits of action to the Divine)—can awaken a new inner reality and empower us to experience our relationship with the world in a new light.
