My innate connection with Pashupatinath Temple!

About Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath Temple, enlisted as the UNESCO world heritage site is situated by the bank of river Bagmati. Also regarded as one of the most holiest and major Hindu temples in the world, it attracts thousands of people each year. Unlike these reasons, Pashupatinath temple attracts me with its multiplicity and contrasts; which easily captivates with live display of despair and happiness. People are seen wishing for the betterment of existent life and in the other side of Pashupatinath, people escaping the physical world at the same time.

As previously mentioned in the post: Life in Love as well, how can I miss the exhilarating experience of soulful musical Aarati during the evening. I am not sure what exactly is the force that magnetizes and craves me to go to Pashupati frequently; people, aarati, environment or some kind of energy which automatically drives there but it has been my regular hub for last 3 years or so.

In this post, I have attempted to connect my emotional attachment of Pashupatinath with photographs.
And this time, I have clicked the pictures of monkeys more than that of human and temples because I tried to capture emotional state of monkeys to compare with that of Human.
At the end of the day, it was really an interesting experience spending time with monkeys.

And I found this story (somewhat related to the environment of Pashupatinath) to be an intriguing one. Do give a read!

About the author

I come from the land of Gurkhas; the brave soldiers who fought tirelessly and didn’t let any countries rule Nepal. Because of those Gorkhalis, the Nepalese are proud to call “Nepal has always been an independent nation so far.” Nepalese Flag is the world’s only non-quadrilateral national flag; red color symbolizing the bravery and blue symbolizes peace and harmony. What a proud thing. Also Nepal was a Hindu Kingdom in the past and now a secular state welcoming people from all the religions. Nepal is a country of living heritages and Kathmandu a city of temples. All in all, Nepal is a country with Unity in Diversity. Thank you for reading the boring random shits. These things don’t relate to me in anyway. And those are not the things that describe me. If I introduce myself with the common voices of any nationality, group or community, it’s nothing but a sheer stupidity. A part of it can be a shared introduction but not fully. So who am I? I don’t know who I am. It’s been years of SEARCH but nothing has been excavated yet. And also, I am not the right person to describe who I am. It's you who know me and whatever I say about me makes no sense. You tell me who I am ;)
