Day trip to Pyramid Valley meditation center

Date: 21 April 2014

On a Monday morning, I joined my cousin brother and his family on short day-trip to a place called Pyramid Valley International, just off Kanakapura Road.

The drive barely took an hour

You have to get off Kanakapura Road when you see the sign pointing left to where Pyramid Valley International is located. Once you get on to the small road, it’s pretty bad. You pass through a village with poor roads before you reach the gates at Pyramid Valley.

There is an open ground for parking and there is no fee for the same. We parked under a big tree as it was quite sunny.

Like many spiritual centers in India, they are spread across many acres

Pyramid Valley International claims to be a “new age meditation” and “spiritual science” center (if there ever is such a thing as spiritual science).

Much of the space inside looks like there is still a lot of work to be done

But why is it called Pyramid Valley?

Because there really is a pyramid in here!

They claim meditation done inside a pyramid channels cosmic energy and is three times more powerful than regular meditation.

As soon as you enter, visitors are instructed to step into the orientation/briefing room where an instructor briefs us on how to meditate. After a 10-minute introduction, then we are allowed to enter the pyramid.

In the hall were sparsely spread out chairs and it was very humid inside. No air-conditioning or cool air flowing through. In the middle, was a tower with a spiral staircase.

We could go up

So we all did.

It seems they carefully placed gem stones under the spire to better channel the cosmic energy down to the people below

We didn’t sit and meditate much because the heat was uncomfortable.

We then headed for vegetarian lunch (which was free) as the kitchen closes by 2pm

Before leaving, we went to the ‘view point’ from where we get could get a good look at the pyramid’s exterior.

Looks kinda cool, doesn’t it?

And that’s it. That’s what you see from the view point.

We left Pyramid Valley soon after and I was back home in 45 minutes. Pyramid Valley International clearly still has a few years of work left for the place to look its potential best, but I’m sure it will get there. Still, if you are looking for a short day trip in Bangalore, Pyramid Valley isn’t too bad.
