India. What an incredible, magical, ancient, colorful place. We went to India with the once in a lifetime opportunity to serve at the Narenkari mission in Delhi. Two million (yes, million) people from all over the country and even all over the world joined together for this year’s samagam to celebrate oneness, love, and the life of Baba Gi, the man who started it all.
For the first 3 days of our trip, 60 chiropractors from all over the world adjusted over 10,000 people. It was fast paced, exhausting, and one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. People bowed at my feet out of gratitude, and I broke down in tears on the reg. I’ve never met more gracious, thankful, hospitable people. Ever. Indian culture is grounded in selflessness and generosity. It was so beautiful.
There were over 500,000 volunteers from all over the world – lawyers, doctors, educators – all sacrificing their time and resources to serve the samagam.
We didn’t get to explore much else of New Delhi unfortunately. Once the samagam was finished, we headed out to see the Taj Mahal. New Delhi is known for having one of the largest open markets in the world. 70% of the worlds mangos come from India and almost 100% of the spices!!!
