This is a deficient notion, although moving to Varanasi (also called 
Kashi) and embracing spirituality may have some value. Shankara, an 
incarnation of Shiva, commented on the real Kashi, which is within:

I am that Kashi whose essence is self-knowledge.
In Kashi the light shines.
That light illumines everything. 
Whoever knows that light, truly reaches Kashi.
If all this dwells within my body,
What other place of pilgrimage can there be?
