Name India exploration and Vipassana

I am planning to travel to india in the beginning of June to attend a 10 day Vipassana meditation retreat. Upon the end of Vipassana, I thought it would be a good thing to travel india for the remainder of the trip.... I've never been to India.... but for me it is a spiritual journey as well as an adventure. I have not planned out all of the events as a I am doing more research. I'm certain that Vipassana is in New Delhi and begins June 6th and ends the morning of June 17th. Vipassana is not cult affiliated nor does it involve hypnosis. It is simply a form of intense meditation. After Vipassana it would be great to travel around india by train and see certain cities, museums, architecture, culture, etc. I am looking for someone to travel with or another group people who are interested. We can begin planning, exchange contact info, etc. here is the website explaining more about Vipassana. Many people say that it is a life changing experience Vipassana that is. http://www.dhamma.org/en/schedules/schsota.shtml#10-Day

1. New Delhi
2.Uttar Pradesh
a. sarnath

Nate I am VERY interested in this trip. It would be a spiritual journey for me as well; I've been wanting to go on a Buddhist pilgrimmage of sorts for a long time. I think it'd be best to backpack as cheaply as possible, and truly experience India. Let's make this happen!
