Indonesian spiritual and pluralist society champion Anand Krishna says religious and spiritual tourism represents both a need and a trend for the future. He believes that Bali has great potential for the future development of spiritual tourism and travel.

Said Krishna on Friday, June 22, 2012, quoted in “Starting from now and into the future, the trend for religious or spiritual travel will steadily grow, because tourists are not only seeking pleasure, but also seeking peace for their souls.”

According to Krishna, each year millions of people will be visiting the places in which they can discover the significance of life, and answer various questions pertaining to the quest for happiness and inner satisfaction.

The world-renowned spiritual figure’s remarks were made to a group from the Indonesian Tour Guide Association in Bali. He told the guides that Bali has a huge potential to be developed as a spiritual tourism destination, for it has many sites that can be offered to those wishing to embrace universal values.

Citing India as an example, he told of how foreigners visit that country to meet a guru or learn yoga or meditate. “They are not Hindu and don’t think of changing their religion either. Their coming to India is to learn ‘core’ or ‘universal values’ of Hinduism that can be observed and applied without having to forsake their own religion. They are spiritual tourists. Their trips to India do not deal with religious affairs, but with spiritual values that may not be connected to rites at all,” he explained.

What is needed, he explained, is ashrams or spiritual communes where spiritual tourists to Bali can learn universal spiritual values of Hindu that are still relevant today.
