About this title


Kumbh is the sura total of all the Tirtahs(pilgrimage spots.) Beyond the limits of religion, Kumbh is to gain Salvation, getting rid of one's burden of accumulated sins. It is the oldest recorded sacred moment on earth. The crowd of Hindu monks and their Royal procession the Shahi or Syahi forms the main attraction at Kumbh, w2here naked ascetics, the Nagas, recognized for their quick anger and aggressive nature, move out of their Akhara enclosures. The different Akharas, Sadhus and Sany asis particularly the Nagas, appear to have gained much importance after an incidence at Kumbh Prayag in 1954. Although there are a number of storie3s on record for the aggressive disposition and religious fights by the Nagas, it can be said that without the Sadhus, there can be no Kumbh.
