very strong vote from me Debu.

The covering in ash is also an act of worship I believe? In goa, there is a large scuplture of Shiva in the rock at little vagator, & a trident (shiva symbol) has been cemented inmto the rock.

Love this stuff Debu, I have a small Shiva temple in my loft room.

Very interesting, intriguing... a great contrast between the ancient religion and modern life... Now I will look on wikipedia what it is all about.
