This video is called Varanasi by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Black Taj in iTunes. Varanasi, also know as Kashi or Benares has been the place of pilgrimage for Hindus since the beginning of time. It is considered to be the oldest city on earth. Hindus believe that to die in this city is to attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth. It is a center of learning and civilization for over 3000 years. Sarnath, just 10 Km. away, is the place where Buddha preached his first sermon after enlightenment. Ayurveda is said to be originated at Varanasi and is believed to be the basis of modern medical sciences such as Plastic surgery, Cataract and Calculus operations. A lot of the spiritual events occur at the Ghats, which are pictured here. If you ever have to the opportunity to go to Varanasi you will be touched by it forever.
