The Maha Kumbh Mela ("great festival of the pot of nectar of immortality") is held every three years in each of four different locations, returning to each of four places every twelve years. An Ardh (half) Mela (festival) takes place six years after the Maha Kumbh in each location.
Gopal das and Bawa Guru. Prayag
Gopal Das on the left and Bawa Guru on the right smoking the evening Ganja in the tent. I stayed with them in the tent for a week. The three of them are Sadhu from a village not far from Varanasi. Very nice people.
