Faith and Fables

India is the land of Faith and Fables with hundreds of Gods, thousands of rituals and millions of temples. Hinduism is considered to be the one of the oldest religion. A rich, complex and deeply symbolic religion, Hinduism is, actually, called Sanatana Dharma or the eternal truth/tradition/religion. Hindus believes all the world is an illusion, a mere shadow of the Reality. Although one sees idols everywhere, they are points of concentration on the aspects of the one Supreme Reality. As one grows inwards, one moves from the dual or one with form to the non-dualor the formless. The complex Hindu philosophy is surrounded by fairy tales and superstitions. This photo series tells the story of faith and fables from 4 different regions of India. Varanasi, Haridwar, Pushkar and Madhurai. Essentially try to capture the inherited faith and spiritual consciousness of the people believing in Hindu religion.
