Freed Posted July 6, 2005 Report Share Posted July 6, 2005 I was clearing up some old files on my computer and found these pictures - They aren't very clear - They were taken at The 1998 Kumbh Mela - Perhaps some of the Nirmala members of the forum recognise any faces ?- or can explain what is happening in the pics or what happens at the Kumbh - The Nirmala Akhara are the last to 'bathe' I believe ?? - any information greatly appreciated. The Pics are from Dr. James G. Lochtefeld 's website ( Assoc. Prof. of Religion, Carthage College,Kenosha, WI ,USA) http://www.carthage.edu/dept/religion/biog...fm?ID=800002425 (The Link worked last time I checked - sometimes it doesn't !) Nirmalas at Kumbh Mela * Picture from http://www.sewapanthi.org/ Nirmalas at Kumbh Mela 1998 Udasis at 1998 Kumbh Mela Some bonus pictures !!! Mahant AnantAnand of Udasin Akhara Amritsar - does the turban style, with 'Farla' like frill , have any significance ??
