In my birthday mы Popeye tseremoniyu of Ganga in Haridwar Aart. Not necessarily come to this ritual in the celebration, it is held every evening, but Kumbh Mela here is going to an incredible number of saints, sages and enlightened – it will be an unforgettable event.
Aart ceremony – this offering Ganges, can pass several times per day, we came back in the evening – as soon as dusk falls over the city, dozens of lighted candles are sent down the river.
But fast forward to a little more than an hour early, Hundreds of people make their offerings for the day, and bathe in the waters, that they are able to purify karma beliefs.
Some pilgrims a day perform their rituals in the Ganges, make offerings to him, smoking his bhange.
People takes place on the waterfront in advance, ibid sell litter, not to sit on the stone.
We sat on his slippers and together began to look to the other side, where for an hour Brahmins sang songs and performed ritual, constantly referring to Har Ki Pori (feet of the god).
To see for themselves, as pujari twist lamps, you have to come to Haridwar, Rishikesh, Varanasi or other sacred Indian city. Brahmins do their work on both sides of the ducts, read a long prayer with pilgrims, before sending the oil lamp down the river.
We also conducted a separate Brahmin ritual, unfortunately, I do not know what to call it, but good luck will be many more. And more, hopefully, fire and light in the world will be more.
