What To Bring On The Bus

A checklist for your travels:

Packing Guidelines

  • Pack as small a bag as possible. Space is limited. Take only what you really need... and then halve it!
  • Bring layers of lightweight items to wear. That way, you can easily add or remove layers when you get cold or hot. They will dry quickly when washed. Bring comfortable, modest clothing considering the warm summer weather, and taking into account that we will be in public representing the ideals of Ananda Marga.

Items To Bring

  • "Baba's Mystical Tour" & "Baba Nam Kevalam" t-shirts are available when you book your Bus ticket. These will be great to create a presence! Pack something orange to wear.
  • Toiletries: Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc.
  • Sleeping bag, pillow and mat
  • Tent if attending during one of the camping periods - i.e. during Glastonbury, Lyon, Barcelona & Fiesch. If you don't have one, please arrange to share someone else's via the Forums.
  • Towel
  • Eating utensils: Cup, bowl, fork, spoon, small fruit-knife
  • Water bottle
  • Laundry soap
  • Torch / Flash-light
  • Wristwatch to stay on time!
  • Snacks for the road
  • Comfortable, sturdy footwear. Good sandals are ideal in the hot weather.
  • Swim-suit
  • Warm jacket or sweater for colder places (e.g. Fiesch)
  • Musical instruments. But please first check if there is space on the bus, if the instrument is large.
  • 1979 memories. If you were with Baba on His 1979 tour, please bring your stories and photos or any memorabilia to share
