Pilgrimage—a sacred journey—has the capacity, should we choose to engage it, to take us to the heart of our beingness. Pilgrimage offers those seeking Goddess in Her most powerful forms (for example, through Kali, any of the Mahavidyas, Matrikas, or Yoginis) an opportunity to discover Her mysteries more deeply and sweetly. Each voyage invites the devotee to delve deeper into her or his spiritual path, expand horizons, learn first-hand about living Goddess traditions and experience the history and culture of the birthplace of Tantra.
If you join us, you will access and visit temples and spiritual sites otherwise hard to reach, gaining entrance to a world often off-limits to foreign visitors. Come with us to meet Tantrics, adepts, and myriad spiritual seekers devoted to the Divine Mother.

The learnings of the recent past are adequately fermented and are now ready to issue forth a great elixir; you are almost ready to bring into creation a great amrita, that sacred substance of moon juice ambrosia so treasured by Goddess. Remember to breathe. Look inside….
SHARANYA hosted annual pilgrimages to India from 2000 through 2009. We resume in 2016 visiting sacred sites in West Bengal, Orissa, and Assam, notably Dakshineswar, Kalighat, Tarapith, Hirapur (a 64-yogini temple), Vaitala Deula (Chamunda temple) in Bhubaneshwar, and Kamakhya (as well as the surrounding Mahavidya and nearby Shiva and Navagraha temples) in Assam.
