Hindus believe that bathing in the sacred rivers will result in the remission of sin and will circumvent rebirth, thus guaranteeing a berth in the heavens.River Ganges is the holiest river of India.`aarti’ means worshiping the divine with respect.Varanasi is the one of the important place,where 7 priests perform Ganga Aarti everyday at 6pm at the river side of ganga 365 days a year.
[The aarti is performed on a stage by a group of young pandits, all draped in saffron colored robes with their puja plates spread out before them. It commences with the blowing of a conch shell, and continues with the waving of incense sticks in elaborate patterns and circling of large flaming lamps that create a bright hue against the darkened sky. The movement of the lamps, held in the pandits’ hands, is tightly synchronizing to the rhythmic chants of hymns and clang of cymbals. The heady scent of sandalwood thickly permeates the air.]
