Judy’s Journey …

Judy - Garden LadakhJudy has visited India several times and has long been an energy conduit for the Buddhist Goddess Tara. Several years ago while in Nepal Judy discovered a book about a Golden Tara in a book store in Kathmandu. This book described the journey by the author Dieter Glogowski to remote Lingshed Monastery in Ladakh, where he met with an elderly Lama who asked him to find a lost statue of a Golden Tara.

Judy was intrigued by the story as she had only ever experienced Tara in her Green Tara and White Tara energy emanations. She had never heard of a Golden Tara, but she now felt her energy.

So, in 2016, Judy traveled to Ladakh on her own personal quest to find the Golden Tara.

She spent seven weeks literally crossing the high mountain passes of Ladakh, but on the inner planes she crossed a great divide within herself. Her search for the Golden Tara brought her clarity for her future life and work and her transition into the new energy of “God’s creation” that is now coming forth in her work.

Sample Itinerary for Search for Golden Tara Tour

 

 

Meet Sameeta

SameetaSameeta Nanjiani from Mumbai will be travelling with us on the tour. Sameeta is well versed in organizing spiritual tours to Ladakh. She is a spiritual teacher and light worker, teaching meditation and energy work. Sameeta is especially interested in crystals and crystal bowl healing and holds classes throughout India and in Asia.

Travel to Leh

 

Aerial View of HimalyasFlights from Delhi to Leh leave in the early morning daily in the summer months of June until October. The journey from Delhi takes only an hour and 15 minutes, but for panoramic mountain views it has few equals.

After crossing the Indian plains the aircraft flies over the lesser and greater Himalayas, the Pir Panjal mountains and the Zanskar range.

The touch down at Leh Airport does not disappoint. The landscape is other worldly, with a monastery on a cliff at the end of the tarmac!

Judy and Sameeta will meet you at Delhi and accompany you every step of the way.

Personal Safety

Ladakh is a remote and isolated state of India. Tourism only began in this region after Delhi opened the borders to travelers in 1974.

Ladakhi people are friendly and easy to interact with and many speak English.

Judy says, “I spent seven weeks in Leh as a woman alone and felt entirely safe. Highways are well maintained in this border area by the Indian Army, which has a very visible presence. Drivers are good at their job!”

Indian Visas

Foreign travel permits will be procured on behalf of the group and these fees are included in the tour price.

Please check the visa requirements for travel to India from your country. You may need to allow six weeks to get a tourist visa from the Indian High Commission or embassy. You can also get this visa online. Visitors from some countries can get a tourist visa on arrival at Delhi. This may change without notice so consulting the Indian Immigration website and procuring a visa in advance is a wise precaution.

Please ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months AFTER your date of RETURNING HOME. Visa questions or difficulties: Email Sameeta at sameetan@gmail.com.

Ladakh People

Muslim festival mealThe universal greeting is “Julay”, which means both hello and thank you.

Culturally Ladakh is largely Tibetan and it is the only major region where Tibetan religion and culture flourishes without repression.

The people of Leh are predominantly Buddhist. They are happy, contented people, who greet tourists to their country with a smile.

There are also Muslim traders from Kashmir in Leh.

Judy says, “These young muslim men invited me to partake in their Eid al-Adha festival meal.”

Food and Beverages

Indian foodThe food available in the tourist areas of Ladakh is prepared safely and well. Bottled water is provided. The food at Omasila is first class and the cafes and upmarket restaurants in Leh are quite sophisticated in their menu choice and presentation.

In Leh there is a German Bakery selling baked goods and expresso coffee, cafes where you can enjoy Indian, Ladakhi and Tibetan cuisine and shops selling fresh nuts and apricots, apples and other freshly picked organic produce.

If spicy food is not to your taste you can order salads, steamed vegetables, chicken, fresh fish from mountain streams, bread, rice and pasta.

Judy says, “I have never been ill from poorly prepared food while traveling in India. Water used to prepare salads and fruit is purified.”

Medical Information

The major health hazard for visitors to Ladakh is mountain sickness as when you arrive by air you are coming from the plains of Delhi to Leh, which is at an altitude of over 11,000 feet. If you rest on arrival as per the daily itinerary you should have little or no problem adjusting to being in Ladakh.

Hotel staff and doctors in Ladakh are experienced in dealing with mountain sickness. Mountain sickness, (AMS) to give it its full medical name, is completely preventable if you rest and allow your body to acclimatize to the lower oxygen content of the air.

If you suffer from asthma or have chronic breathing, heart or lung issues, you should consult a doctor about your desire to visit Ladakh and obtain medical clearance.

This tour does not require you to walk long distances.
