Alright, this post is a bit delayed (as in, 3 days delayed) but it’s better than nothing, right?!
This past Saturday, my teacher from back in the States brought 4 of us yoga students to Srirangapatna to see the Raganathaswami Temple. I, for one, had never seen anything like it, and was very grateful to have such a cultural experience! Inside was a stucco image of the Hindu god Raganatha, or Vishnu (it’s one of Vishnu’s temples), among many others and were so ornate and beautifully made and decorated. There was also a little baby who was brought, naked, to sit on the main image of Vishnu… It kind of looked like a baby baptism does for Christians. It was so cute! It made me smile. 🙂
