ON THE ROAD WITH ANN – senses and ritual

A ritual performed morning and night in temple on hotel grounds in small village of Narlai by the tribesmen who work there.

You can’t hear the bells and drumming and chanting or smell the incense, but I wish you could.

 

 

From india9.com:  “Narlai, situated at the base of a hillock, on the top of which is a colossal statue of an elephant, is a major Jain pilgrim center. The name Narlai is derived from `Narad’. It is believed that saint Narada – a constant companion of Lord Vishnu, meditated on a hill which lies at the center of the village.”
