Excellent example., Antonio!

I have questionsP:

Is this the washing out of the last ashes of a beloved, or some other ritual?

We are marked in our psyche to many belief patterns of which is one of the few that is also demonstrated publicly in observable behavior, attitudes, rituals and customs.


..............When one meets another person, one is also meeting an encyclopedia of ancestral memes!

Also fits in our fine collection of diagonals!

This was done in Varanasi (Benares) and yes, they were washing the ashes and posing for someone who was photographing them.

The waters in Varanasi are terribly polluted !
Since we are in Benares, here are 3 more from the burning sites. Enjoy !

I visited your website and was so rewarded, Greg!

Your pictures are some of the richest I have seen! Looking forward to them appearing here. You need to have an extension on the URL address of your images, such as .jpg or .png.
