From the early time, people have been conscious passing retired life peacefully and practicing spiritual activities. Today, too, people make strategies for retirement life.
There is a separate chapter in Mahabharata for describing four main period of common human being – brahmchary ashram, grihasth ashram, baanprasth ashram and sanyas ashram. I Mahabharata’s Anushashan parva , there is description of activities for passing the last retirement life (SanyasAshram ) ( Sankhipt Mahbharata , Part II, page 1381-1386, Geeta Press India,)
Mahabharata suggests the human being for migrating elsewhere as soon as he/she enters in last phase of life . It is essential to migrate away from home in Sanyas Ashram.
Mahabharata suggests many acts for passing Sanyas Ashram or retired life as –
Simple food, less food, yama, Cleanliness, truthful life, Contently life, not to be afraid of long ife or death, . On the whole the person should be away from home and family and pass life with spiritual activities rather family life. The Sanyasi was suggested to get food by begging (means touring for food).
After Kurukshetra war, King Dhritarashtra, his wife gandhari, queen Kunti and Minister Vidur migrated from Kurukshetra to bank of Bhagirathi (Garhwal Uttarakhand) for passing their retired life (Sanyas Ashram) ( Ibid pages 1933). The story tells that there were other King too those were passing retired life as Sages.
Migration from one place to peaceful place for retired life is nothing but a kind of tour under medical tourism /wellness tourism.
