Handful of petals
Offering to the Mother
From my heart to hers

 

 

The Haiku was written about a Bhagavati Puja I attended last night. The photographs were taken after the puja had ended.

The Bhagavati Seva Puja, is an ancient Vedic puja ceremony done to restore balance in the environment and bring peace within us and the world. It is a very beneficial puja performed to keep us in harmony with cosmic forces, thereby removing and overcoming the sorrows of life and bringing spiritual upliftment.

      1. March is actually haiga festival. My very first haiku (did not know it was that then) were with photos I loved to display with an added thought. check out Chèvrefeuille`s lectures at the top of the menu too for lots of really interesting info. 🙂

    1. Beautiful and lovely definitely. Calming, hmmmmm, not so sure about that. With the high energy music and chanting it is more exhilarating for me I think. Feeds the soul though so in that sense is calming.
