Praying to Hindu trinity
To Brahma the creator, Wisnu the preserver and Siwa the destroyer.
Sitting quietly, men cross-legged, women kneeling to calm theirselves and breathing in harmony in preparation for prayer.
Washing face and hands in the smoke of the incense.
Praying with empty hands to connect to their own soul.
Holding a flower in their fingertips to pray to the supreme One.
Having discarded the single flower now holding different coloured flowers in the finger tips to pray to the three God manifestations- Creator, Preserver and Destroyer. (Brahma, Wisnu and Siva).
Holding three or more flowers honouring the manifestations of the One God in All
Praying with empty hands beseeching peace in our selves and others.
and at least
Waiting quietly for the priest (Pemangku) to come and sprinkle holy water and ‘blessed’ the rice bija as well.
