Whether it is the chiming of bells in the temples of Varanasi, a congregation bowing in the courtyard of a mosque in Ajmer, the Christmas carols in the churches in Goa, or the act of service in a Gurudwara in Punjab, the religions of India bring people together. India is also the land where the Buddha achieved enlightenment, where the art of Yoga was born and where the ancient healing practise of Ayurveda thrives.
