Lips Of Faith by MARX77 Lips Of Faith by MARX77
I came across these Hindu preachers who had just arrived from Nepal (the second from left, the one with lips coming out of his throat,
is their spiritual leader, a pundit) and they were holding a prayer gathering outside the Golden Cinema in Bur Dubai.
Concerned, I approached and warned them that what they're doing might not sit well with the authorities here.
But the pundit just smiled, shrugged and said, "Welcome! Sit, and listen."
"Okay," I said, "maybe I could stay for a couple of minutes...."
I left fifteen minutes after the two and a half hour prayer meeting ended.
It was quite an experience!

Bur Dubai - Dubai, U.A.E.

Dedicated to my wonderful friend, the brilliant, *LindelCaine.

I'm glad you enjoyed the experience of being with these people as they prayed. I cannot help but wonder about the way in which they "managed" their rituals there, in the street. Were men and women present or only Nepali men ?
Thank you for the kind dedication, Khuram. :iconwhiteroseplz:
...I'm not so sure about the "brilliant" though...

As a matter of fact, there were women present - the married ones were, however, with their families, while the single ladies were sitting "outside" the circle.
Oh they managed their rituals alright; even with the police car passing by, twice!
It was a mini miracle! :lol:

It's my pleasure, Lindel.
You are an inspiration to me.
