Offering Water in Devotion

“Whatever I am offered in devotion with a pure heart - a leaf, a flower, fruit, or water - I accept with joy.”

(Bhagavad Gita)


This young priest is filling a big metallic vase with the holy waters of the Ganges before climbing a staircase which leads at the top of the ghat in order to perform a water- pouring ritual in a sacred well surrounded by five temples which is located at the corner of Nepali ghat in Varanasi (Benaras).
