1093 BANARAS: interview Om Prakash Sharma

“Not so long ago, worshipping the elements was a daily routine, People were living according to nature and the priests were not only administrating but were also experimenting with nature, This gave a practical meaning to temple life. Every morning Hindu people have their duty to do puja, and they offer water to the rising of the sun.
The yoga that we know now, has come from ‘byayan’. In the old days it was related to religion, now only the positions have remained. Saffran clothes have also the colour of the rising sun.

All festivals were celebrated according to the seasons. If the season changed, people would start to prepare a different kind of food. When, for instance, wood-apple leaf and fruits were offered to Shiva, it was only accepted up to a certain time and after that, the food would become poisonous. People were also worshipping the trees because they got coolness from them and fresh air, this was only done in the morning because then the tree gives oxygen and thy were aware of these things. Like the neem-tree was supposed to cure diseases and give protection against small-pox.

Now, man is in control of the machine, or at least he thinks so. We totally depend on machines, if electricity fails we are disturbed. Slowly, slowly we have less time and are becoming ‘anti’ from this feeling of nature. Still everything cannot be washed away, maybe in a different way or with a different name, but old values will remain. Good scholars will come and they will start to research again.

In the festivals the text is very important, without it we cannot celebrate. There are two types, one is related to the ‘sastras’ or holy books, the other is oral transmission. Family traditions say which God will be worshipped and in what way. Like on the occasion of Durga festival, you will see big lines
of people and this causes that they will throw their offerings, flowers and coconuts to the idol. But it will be accepted and the pilgrims will be happy and that means their life is o.k. With the grace of some God their family is growing. They who worship Durga will not go to a Vishnu temple. Pilgrims have only one aim and they will see only that.”

1015: “A bier with remains of a corpse”

A bier has surfaced on the other side of the river. It is not unlikely that the turtles have finished the corpse. In Semitic religions the corpse is buried and ‘preserved’ for the day of the last judgment. In hindu tradition it is said that the body is only a temporary dwelling, like clothes one discards at night. Only ignorant people find it difficult to leave that body. Everyone has passed through many bodies, and many are likely to have to come back in other bodies.

Aan de overkant is een lijkbaar aangespoeld. Het lijk is wellicht door de schildpadden in de rivier verorberd. In tegenstelling tot de Semitische religies die het lijk ‘bewaren’, is voor de hindoe het lichaam maar een tijdelijke woonst, niet gemakkelijk om te verlaten voor wie ‘onwetend’ is. Iedereen heeft al veel lichamen gehad en misschien moeten velen nog in verscheidene lichamen terugkomen.

A bier with remains of a corpse on the opposite shore of the Ganges at Banaras (Varanasi); India. Usually a body is cremated, except when there is not enough money for the fire.

1013: A Sailing vessel on the Ganges

Transporting goods with a rugged sailing boat at the Ganges near Banaras Varanasi in India. You may wonder it sails at all, heavy loaded with sand as it is, but these people know their business and look like they have all the time in the world ..

De ‘heilige’ Ganges, langs de haren van Shiva op aarde neergedaald; biedt reiniging van zonden en van ander vuil. Bron van inkomsten voor velen. Bedreigd door nucleaire pollutie als ooit de energiebron die in de gletsjer waaruit de Ganges ontspringt barst! In de jaren zestig werd in de Indiase Himalaja een ‘spion’ geplaatst om naar China te kijken. Door het noodweer gedwongen moesten de bergbeklimmers de nucleaire aandrijving achterlaten…, en ze hebben het tuig nooit teruggevonden. Decennia later is het schandaal uitgebroken. Afwachten maar.
