Prayers, Pujas and Piety-The Sanctity of All Life
This post will contain different faces of prayer, sacred ceremonies, piety and prayer in Indian life. Everything, every event, every action is considered sacred and Divine by Indians. Even a businessman, after receiving payment, will say a quick prayer of thanks over the bills he has been handed before placing them reverently and gratefully in the cash register. Here are just several examples of small personal prayers or huge daily public pujas, but all reflecting the sanctity and joy felt by people for all the blessings so lovingly given to them each and every day by God. I will post several photos full size here, but after the slideshow you will be able to view many more via the gallery. Just click on a photo to enlarge it.
