In the soil of prayer

“God speaks in the silence of the heart.

Listening is the beginning of prayer. ”

(Mother Teresa)


This lady was with a group of people nearby the holy waters of the Ganges at Ahilyabai ghat in Vanarasi (Benaras) where they were having a puja.

They allowed me to stay with them and to take pictures.

The women were leading the ceremony and making the offering with coconuts and flowers after bathing in the river this is why this lady is not wearing any make-up apart from the dilak (teeka).
