Fiery faith: Devout dance on fire, remain unhurt

Fiery faith: Devout dance on fire, remain unhurt

Mumbai: 23 October 2018


Faith can conquer anything is the belief of many religious devout. Followers of a Hindu sect called Sidh, which was founded by Guru Jasnathji Maharaj in the 16th century, perform a devotional fire dance called Agni Nritya singing praises of their Guru. Amazingly, the performers though they jump on to burning charcoals while singing, remain unhurt.

 
A video of one such fire dance has gone viral on WhatsApp, wherein a young Sidh dancer can be seen dancing with an aarti (burning wicks on lamp) in his hand dancing around burning charcoal pit. He then pours ghee (clarified butter) in the smoldering pit which fans the fire further. Following he dances around the pit and climbs on to the fire for a few seconds, and makes circumambulation dances around the fire, taking the name of Guru Jasnathji. Miraculously he remains unhurt throughout the ritual. All the while, Sidh devotees gathered at the site play cymbals and sing devotional songs.

The fire dance was performed during a religious fair at Panchla village in Rajasthan, India.

  2. The gray rat Irving is not doing well. After visits to the vet and some antibiotics the only other course of action for his respiratory infection is a steam nebulizer treatment. Last night I put both rats in a cage and set them in the bathroom while I showered, hoping the hot, moist air would help. It did not.
