Fire Ceremony.

Janakpur - Nepal.

L’Ārtī est un rituel hindou exécuté à la nuit tombée en hommage à une divinité. Il se tient souvent sur les berges d’un fleuve ou d’une rivière.
Il réuni de nombreuses personnes et est généralement accompagné de chants.
Une atmosphère particulière se dégage de ce moment et l’on est fasciné par les flammes que des officiants font tournoyer dans la nuit tandis que s’élèvent des chants envoutants….

Ārtī is the name gave to a Hindu ritual performed at night in homage to a deity. It often stands on the banks of a river.
It brings together many people and is usually accompanied by songs.
A special atmosphere emerges from this moment and one is fascinated by the flames that officiants make twirl in the night
while bewitching songs rise...

Maybe best viewed in orignal size...
