“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” 
(George Washington Carver – American scientist, botanist, educator, and inventor, 1864–1943)

Sometimes I can enjoy the golden lectures spread along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras), the oldest living city in the world.
There is something timeless, something that seems to come from far away in time, a teaching that goes through generations, through frontiers and culture…
In this image the elder man was reading holy scriptures to this young boy, I didn’t speak to them and I don’t know who they are, neither what is the relationship between them as I didn’t want to disturb.
The man is wearing the thread which shows he is Brahman, he is also wearing Rudraksh beads and several attributes showing that he is deeply involved into religion.

He was performing a puja called asthi visarjan for the departed souls journey to heaven .
