Have you ever been at the Kumbh Mela? I plan to go there next time(at the Maha Kumbh Mela), so want to know what is it exactly like. How to reach there? Which site is the best - Allahabad, Haridwar, Varanasi etc? How to get into a group of other pilgrims so that I can evade boredom?
Please share your experience.

This time Hollywood actor Catherine Zeta Jones is planning to do the pilgrimage. But we won't claim like other religious bigots that Jones has converted to Hinduism. :P

Update: edit - Buddha was just a human who copied he teachings of the Vedas. It was Hinduism which first taught the principles of Karma and Brahman. Buddha just copied them.

If a naga sadhu/aghori eats human flesh then he isn't Hindu anymore, since the religion endorses vegetarianism.
