Faith is a precious ray of light that pulls us out of our inner darkness. The same faith, at times, takes on frightening proportions.many devotees pierce their bodies with hooks, skewers and lances called vel. Some even try pulling tractors or other heavy objects with the hooks in their skin; o theirs pierce their tongue and cheek to impede speech and thereby attain full concentration on the Lord. They enter into a trance during such piercing due to the incessant drumming and chanting.
