Waves of Faith

The Chhath Puja is performed to the Sun God for sustaining life on earth and to request the granting of certain wishes. Sun, considered the god of energy and the life-force, is worshiped during Chhath for well-being, prosperity and progress.

The rituals of the festival are rigorous and are observed over a period of 4 days. They include the holy bathing, fasting and abstaining from drinking water (Vratta), Standing in water for long periods of time and offering prashad and aghrya to the setting and rising sun.

Now heres where I was going with the theme of H20

Rishi's track "Salila" which means water has all the elements to help define such a property. Blissful basslines, fluid tabla rhythms and a great sitar arrangement
