Photo Of The Day ~ Listening To God

Taken at the Ambubachi Festival, which is held in the month of June at the Kamakhya Temple in Assam, a few local boys can be seen sitting on the lapse of a temple and enjoying the rhymes sung for Mother God. The festival marks the completion of the yearly menstruation cycle of the Mother Goddess and it is believed that during the monsoon rains, the creative and nurturing power of the ‘menses’ of Mother Earth becomes accessible to devotees at this site, making it a hub for Tantric practices.
