Bathing

It’s sunrise and bathing in the Ganga has begun. It is an auspicious day here in India when I took this photo. Visiting the Kumbha Mela, we met a man who walked 200 miles by foot to be there. We were handed dishes of rice with no expectation to pay-as so many don’t have the means. And we were invited into a private area to meet a saint and to see their spiritual fire ceremony. It is said that 150 million will visit by the time the mela ends. I did not witness one act of violence, angry outburst, or anything other than kindness. The largest peaceful gathering in the world. It was nice to be one in the millions.
