Diyas on the Ganges, Evening Offerings
The Hindu faith has many colorful, often flamboyant traditions, rituals, and ceremonies. Perhaps one of the more subdued traditions is that of setting offerings adrift on the sacred waters of the Ganges. These small votives comprised of cups made of dried leaves, marigold flower petals and a lit candle, are gently placed upon the river’s surface at sundown.
