Kolkata Flower Market

A walk through the flower market in Kolkata near the Howrah Bridge. Taken during a pilgrimage while visiting sites related to Paramahansa Yogananda and the gurus in the kriya yoga tradition. It is interesting to note that the millions of flowers passing through this market every day are used as devotional offerings in temples and home shrines. This is a testament to the profound reverence and love for God, the spiritual culture that is woven into the heart of Indians wether they be Hindu, Jain, Moslem, Parsee, Seikh, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, or not affiliated with any formal religious tradition.
