Size:150 x 230 mm
Kumbh Mela is the single largest religious congregation or, in fact, human gathering of any kind on earth. Located at the sacred rivers when Jupiter, Sun and Moon are in precise positions, the Nectar of Immortality flows for blessing all mankind. Since pre-history sadhus, emperors, ascetics, saints, sages and householders have collected by the waters with ceremony. The holy men and women live in ways we could barely imagine until now. This book introduces us to Naga sanyasis, followers of the Hindu Lord Shiva, during the most holy moments of the Hindu calendar.
