About Meditate at Vashishta Gufa

If you wish to be at a place where you can just peacefully sit or meditate in Rishikesh, it is the Vashishta Gufa. The place is extremely quiet most of the times, and it makes you feel calm and peaceful. The cave is on the banks of the river Ganga which is an additional advantage. Most of the people visit here just to meditate and sit in silence, so the place is never noisy. The vibe and the energy of the place are astounding, and it is completely amazing how relaxing you feel here. It is said that even ancient sages used to meditate here as the cave was near the Ganga and the place was perfect for meditation.
