Pilgrimage, Bathing & Praying - The Hindu Festival of Kumbh Mela

Pilgern, Baden, Beten

Kumbh Mela, the festival of the pitcher, is the largest of the Hindu religion's festivals. It takes place every twelve years - according to the cycle of Jupiter around the sun - in four different locations in India.Sadhus, holy Indian monks, come together from every corner of India to take part in the ritual ablutions.For many Hindu orders, the Kumbh Mela is also where they inaugurate and accept students into their communities.This documentary accompanies two practising Hindus, Swami Maheshwarananda, who has lived in Austria for many years, and Lisa Wolf, a native of Vienna, to the festival of the pitcher.Maheshwarananda is the founder of the worldwide order «Yoga in Daily Life» and Lisa Wolf is a painter who was accepted into the Hundertwasser class of the time on the strength of pictures that she produced at a Kumbh Mela 24 years ago.
