golden-triangle-spiritual-tourIndia must acquire the status of world capital for spiritual tourism. This was the gist of the conference on spiritual tourism for sustainable development, with the slug, India – The Land of Gods, organized by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Delhi on October 29.

It also emerged that spiritual tourism can be seen at different levels and that other countries, too, have focused on spiritual tourism, like Bolivia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Romania, whose reps also spoke at the event, apart from Ladhak, dancer Sonal Mansingh, and the founder of Sjoham Babaji Missions, spread in many parts of the world.

More and more seekers of spiritual bliss will come to India if the attractions are marketed well and infrastructure is improved, said the speakers, adding that many Buddhists wanted to come to India for peace.

At another level, it was felt that love and compassion was needed, as was seeking happiness by making others happy.

Material wealth has failed to make people happy, hence there is a greater need to turn to spirituality.
