Awaiting rituals 3

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 23 July 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

These small brass pots have been filled with water. White thick twine is wound around the pots in a particular manner. Mango leaves are placed inside with the major portion of the leaves jutting out and kept in position with a coconut .The mango leaves and coconut draw in a lot of positive energy from cosmos. Later the water inside these pots ( should be of brass or copper only. Clay can also be used) will be poured on the Deities with the conch shells.
