The Rhythm of Life

A devotee offers a handful of the sacred river to the goddess, Shree Swasthani. Striving to attain physical and spiritual purity is the most important goal for Hindus, and water is believed to be the conduit for achieving this. Hindus believe that the rhythm of life is dictated by water, especially the cyclical flow of rivers.
