KAUAI, HAWAII, September 6, 2019 (Hinduism Today): There are many ways to conceptualize 240 million people: 3.2% of the world's population or 72% of the US; 200 times the population of Paris; enough to be the fifth largest country in the world. On January 15th alone, fourteen million--some say 20 million--joined the Royal Bath at the confluence of the Ganga, Yamuna and celestial Saraswati Rivers adjacent to the host city of Prayagraj (population a mere 1.5 million). It was the largest gathering of humans for one event in history. In attendance were India's foremost religious leaders, hundreds of thousands of sadhus and millions of Hindus. They were there to take a holy dip in the sacred rivers, have darshan of the saints and enjoy each other's company in grand celebration.

Hinduism Today correspondent Rajiv Malik provides an in-depth report with many photos of the 2019 Kumbh Mela in the magazine's July issue at "source" above.
