Enlighten Man is the vision of, and the intention to create, and celebration of, the Enlightenment of Mankind. We are gathering from all over the world to celebrate the enlightenment of humanity, as we enlighten. Many different lineages and people from every nation coming together for yoga, satsangs, carnival and India’s first Enlighten Man burn on the beach January 15-26, 2018 at the home of Yoga, Rishikesh, where the Ganges River comes down from the Himalayas and into the planes and beautiful city of Rishikesh.

  • THE BURN: It’s Carnival in Rishikesh. There are several other spiritual groups converging on Rishikesh, like Osho Kumb, and we are joining together, including our own India style “Burning Man” along the Ganges River on Thursday evening, January 18. Hindu’s have been celebrating Dussehra, burning a large effigy of Ravanna from the Ramayana epic, for centuries, so to celebrate the enlightenment of humanity we are building and burning a 35′ tall Nataraja - a Dancing Shiva - and after a world peace prayer we are conducting a drumming circle and inviting an trance dance on the beach that is open to everyone. There are also hikes, river rafting, and other events planned during these weeks.
