Art of praying- III
One last post from the Ganga arti series.
Ganga aarti is a devotional ritual that uses fire as an offering. They perform this every evening at three holy cities of India. Haridwar, Rishikesh and Varanasi.
The aarti is carried out facing the river Ganga. Lamps are lit and circled around by the pandits (Hindu priests) in a clockwise manner. A group of people will be there to sing devotional songs along with this. Very powerful and spiritual uplifting ritual.
