The Pashupatinath Temple area was jam-packed with colorful Sadhus, devout pilgrims, and curious visitors from within and outside the country this Mahashivaratri too. Here are a few glimpses from the Sivaratri celebrations at Pashupati on Friday.
One thing I always take a moment to observe whenever I am at Pashupati Nath is the cremation ritual. Whenever I walk past the cremation grounds, I’m reminded of the vulnerability of life – One minute you are there, and the next minute you are not. This, for me, is a very humbling experience. The reminder that life eventually comes to an end always grounds me and fills me with a deep sense of gratitude to be alive today.
