Swamis performing Ayyappa Pooja. I love the fire in this picture. This is the last stage of the Pooja/Prayer when Camphor/Karpoorm is placed on the floor in front of God and all the Swamis are seen clapping and praying at the same time.
One of my most memorable trips was to Kerala on the ocassion of our second wedding anniversary 🙂 I simply loved it there. We started off at Cochin….then went to Munnar and spent our final day in Alleppey (Alappuzha) in a Boat House. The picture above is not the boat house we ‘lived’ in but one similar. It was a beautiful experience…the boat house travelling through tiny villages….so peaceful and serene. After a while, the only sight in front of your eyes is the unending sea and paddy fields. Truly…God’s Own Country 🙂
