    In April of 2010 Shyama journeyed back to India after 16 years. She participated in the Maha Kumbha Mela, an outstanding gathering of mankind with 50-80 million participants. Archeologyonline describes it as the world’s largest act of faith. The trip felt like a culmination of sorts. The sweetest gift of this journey was Shyama’s re-acquaintance with Mahamandaleshwar Swami Nityananda (aka Gurudev) of shantimandir.com
