With Love to Ganga Ma

A family‘s offering to #Ganga during the famous #Aarti ceremony in #Rishikesh: a diya (light), fresh flowers and incense afloat on a leaf.

The photo was taken during Ganga Aarti which is performed every day in the three holy cities of India: Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Varanasi. Aarti is a powerful and uplifting spiritual ritual. In Rishikesh, the ceremony includes singing of #bhajans (devotional songs), prayers, #hawan (sacred purifying fire ritual) and the actual aarti (oil lamp ceremony).
