There has always been acknowledged the presence of a sixth sense in India, a new dimension to the sensory perception. Probably, like the proverbial 'third-eye' of Lord Shiva, it can only be experienced by the serious traveller, who is interested in the metaphysical, in the spirituals and in the divine. The spirituality of India is visible in its celebrations of life.
The phallic worship, the concept of Devi Ma (mother goddess), the binding of its regions through the Twelve Jyotirlinga Temples, congregation of millions of people for community bathing at Kumbh Mela, the inherent tolerant attitude of the common man, the worship of a guest- Atithi Devo Bhav, are all indicative of a deeply spiritual mind at peace with itself and nature. Come evening, when temples bells toll in an ordered confusion, when earthen lamps are kept over river waves to travel with flickering lights on a spiritual quest. an India of the six senses comes alive to pervade your innermost self. This is the beauty of India. These are the 'sense-sations' of India!
