South Asia has the greatest concentration of lostness in the world. Of 1.5 billion people, 969 million South Asians — including 80 percent of India’s population — still worship Hindu idols made by the hands of men. The Kumbh Mela draws the largest gathering in the world. Ten million people gathered for the Kumbh Mela April 14, 1998, the last Kumbh Mela that was held in Haridwar, India. The lostness that is there day-to-day and that congregates in Haridwar by the millions every 12th year is virtually untouched. This year, the Kumbh Mela, already under way in Haridwar, will continue through the end of April. Here you will find resources that will help you pray specifically for Hindus who are traveling on pilgrimage to wash in the Ganges River in Haridwar in a desperate search for forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
