Millions gather at Hindu festival

Millions of Hindus have gathered in Allahabad in northern India for the Ardh Kumbh, a half-size version of the better known Kumbh Mela festival.

The festival, which began at dawn, will go on for a month and a half.

Thousands of tents have been put up and 20,000 policemen have been deployed at the mela grounds.

I learned about Hinduism way back in high school. My spirituality was re-awakened.

May I please ask: What is the Karma Power number on member profiles? How is it calculated?

I feel that this life has been paying off karma from other incarnations.

Thank you.
