Artist's Description

Trying to capture the spiritual aspect of the daily cremations on the banks of the holy Bagmati River, a tributary of the River Ganges. This is one of the most sacred of Hindu Shrines, where funeral ghats, a series of funeral platforms are spread along the river where devotees, mourners gather.

In Hindu tradition, the spirit can only be released thru cremation and it is expected that cremation take place as soon as possible after the death. Some on our tour found this experience to be disturbing but I, personally, found it to be a rich experience in understanding the culture and the spiritual experience,
