David’s Insight on “Brahman”
At the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kathmandu, Nepal you will find the Pashupati Area Shiva Temple. It is an active Hindu Temple where ceremonial cremations take place on the riverbanks. It is a very public affair compared to our Western traditions. People gather along the narrow paths of this ancient temple to support those grieving with their loved ones below. These colorful devotees have chosen a life of simplicity and detachment from worldly pursuits. They rely on donations to support this quest.
