Because Varanasi is a major Hindu cultural center for pilgrims and tourists alike it has also become a potential target. Over the past few years it has become heavily policed and militarized. It is the site of potential demonstrations for Hindu militants. Anti muslim sentiments are increasing due to aggravation by pro nationalist politicians trying to make a name for... More

I found with Varanasi Remembrances that it sure payed to follow my nose, my instinct. The streets of old Varanasi are steeped in history with it's paved cobbles and narrow streets breathing both the ghosts of generations of pilgrims and todays local 'village' life in one of the most powerful places on earth - Varanasi. Following the festival of Durga... More

Baba Atreya makes dreamy delicate fragrant oils....they evoke wonder. You'll find them only at Varanasi Remembrances because Baba blends them with his secret formula. Find your favorites and indulge in life.

I understand this, if people are willing to pay then it's fine. However one thing, some of the oils I checked were simply not what... More
