Imagine yourself at the Maha Aarti in Pushkar with local and foreign visitors all together on the ghats against the pink hued winter evening sky as performances by renowned Sufi singers take centre stage.
The upcoming edition of “Shree Cement The Sacred Pushkar” festival, scheduled to take place on December 10 and 11, promises to be a celebration of this ancient and holy city of Rajasthan.
The second edition of the festival is being organised by Teamwork Arts and supported by Rajasthan tourism.
Announcing the festival Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje said: “The Sacred Pushkar Festival with roots in openness and inclusiveness presents various traditions of music, meditation and yoga, meant to evoke the divine within us. This unique curation captures the essence of ancient Pushkar.”
The two-day festival will witness performances by Wadali Brothers, popular Sufi singer Daler Mehndi, Dhrupad singers Gundecha Brothers and The Soil — a capella group from South Africa, among others.
Meditation sessions with Geshe Dorji Damdul, Director Tibet House, who spent 17 years as a translator of the Dalai Lama, and curated sessions of Tibetan Heart Yoga with Zachoeje Rinpoche will also take place during the festival.
