Hindus to take out traditional pots procession through Dundee town in South Africa

Hindus are reportedly taking out a traditional procession, with devotees carrying religiously decorated and blessed brass pots on heads, through the streets of Dundee in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) on July 23.

This will mark the conclusion of three-day celebrations involving offering of prayers to Hindu deities of Maha Marieammen, Draupathieammen and Madurayveeran. Celebrations will include various ancient rituals besides flag hoisting, changing of the sacred thali, abeshagam, etc., reports suggest.

All are welcome to the festivities and complimentary lunch will be served. Guru Umesvaran Nagiah will be the officiating priest at the celebrations, which are being organized and hosted by Dundee Hindu Temple (DHT), according to reports.

Meanwhile, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, commended efforts of DHT leaders and area community for keeping the ancient and sacred traditions alive though such celebrations.

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that it was important to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to coming generations amidst so many distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that this temple would help in this direction. Zed stressed that instead of running after materialism; we should focus on inner search and realization of Self and work towards achieving moksh (liberation), which was the goal of Hinduism.
