“Whatever I am offered in devotion with a pure heart – a leaf, a flower, fruit, or water – I accept with joy.”
(Bhagavad Gita)

There is a little temple under the akhara at Jatara ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras) where a priest offers water to the statue of the deity every evening.
It is a long ritual where he has to fill several times a bucket with the holy water of the river.
