EnlightenNext Rishikesh

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas on the banks of the Ganges is the sacred Indian town of Rishikesh. It was here in 1986 that Andrew Cohen first began to share with others the realization that was awakening in him. Since 1996 Andrew has returned to Rishikesh almost every year to lead retreats. The EnlightenNext Rishikesh Centre was opened in 1998.

In May 2008 the Centre moved to Green Valley Cottage, near the Swiss Bandhari Cottages in Tapovan. There is a weekly schedule of events and visitors are welcome to come any time to meditate, watch DVD’s about Evolutionary Enlightenment, or read from our library. All the events on our weekly schedule are free of charge.

“There’s a big difference between how much any individual thinks they care, and how much any individual actually does care. How much anybody does care will always be revealed - seen, known and recognised by how an individual actually lives… by their actual day-to-day relationship to; the other, to the others, to life, to the universe, to the process. That’s the only way you can tell how much any individual cares is by how they live their life.”

- Andrew Cohen
