A Bathing ritual at Dev Prayaag...

The simple devotions of the village folks make me wonder why we all go ourselves tying up in knots trying to find the bliss that comes so easily to these village folks. They on the Sundays or special holy days come all the way from their villages far flung in the mountains to revere the holiest of the rivers Ganges on foot traveling sometimes 10-15 miles in mountains to have a simple bath in freezing cold water and pray to this life giving river which is considered the holiest of all the rivers in India.
