This man was one of hundreds this morning on the ghat in Varanasi, India “cleaning” themselves in the waters of the Ganges, a holy river. The tradition and ritual of the culture is very meaningful and powerful, metaphorically washing away the sins of this incarnation. My guess is that none who do this realize that the River Ganges is one of the top five polluted waterways in the world!
