Why should a person attend the Kumbh Mela?

/
Visiting the Kumbh Mela to take a dip in the holy waters and cleaning the sins committed in a lifetime is a very superficial motive to attend the Kumbh Mela. The Kumbh festival is a life changing experience where a person can fill the spiritual void he or she experiences in the humdrum of busy urban life. Kumbh Mela is a platform where ordinary men can interact with saints and priests and imbibe the knowledge possed by the latter.
