“The Divine Light of the Infinite Lord, who owns the soul and the breath of life, is deep within the inner being.”
(From the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of Sikhism )
This was shot from the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras) during the celebrations of Dev Diwali on the occasion of Kartik Poornima.
The festival of Lights is a mark of welcome to the Gods as it is believed that they descend on earth on that special day.
In the evening under the full moon reflecting in the holy waters each ghat is performing Ganga Aarti with vedic hymns chanted by priests in order to please and welcome God.
