What is Pilgrimage?

Pilgrimage is a ritual journey undertaken alone or as part of a group with the aim of achieving ritual purification, perfection or salvation.

Pilgrimage is a religious experience in which a series of bonds are established between a place in this world and a higher sphere; between an individual traveler and a community, between a flesh and blood pilgrim and he who is reborn, purified by the consummation of his goal.

These bonds are what distinguish pilgrimage from any other type of journey or travel.
