VavuBali 2019 – Homage to Ancestors

Devotees performed VavuBali  paying homage and oblations to one’s ancestors – at Amritapuri Ashram. Hundreds of participants cutting across age and gender barriers, including westerners, participated in the two-hour-long ceremony. Remembering their forefathers, each one paid their tributes and followed rituals which were lead by Brahmacharis. Pitru Yajna (sacrifice for parents) – one of the Pancha Mahayagnas (5 sacrifices) all Hindus have to perform as prescribed by Vedic tradition.
