The Sacredness and Life : Religious Rituals, India
The sacredness is the way to define the meaning of our life through the approach to the divinity and is an aspect of divine revelation. The divinity, as described and practiced in a different way throughout the world, defines the existence of life that is inhabited within the supreme power of life or providence reflecting the purity of life. The sacredness may be a paradoxical word to those who believes in only the existence of earth life, but it is not a subject of contradiction that every life species of the earth possess a concentrated energy within it that is the another form of expression of divinity i.e. a canvas of good thoughts.
And along with this, the religion acts as a matrix of the sacredness of life. Moreover, both are inter-connected through the execution of deeply rooted habits; irrespective of religion or conception, including scientific approach and spiritual thoughts. The sacredness definitely doesn't portray the spirituality only, but it directly reflects the good will power of inner-self.
The work is aimed to those activities that are performed by the human life only to achieve the divinity within our existence i.e. "Atma" or "Self" as defined alike in different religion; and by this divinity they compasses their life to the world of good where nothing negative can rules. Because, the main course of the spiritual thoughts; apart from their intentional description and explanation in a religious way; enriches our meaning of life. The sacrificed and devotional performances beneath the costume of religious rituals are either related to purification of the soul or the thoughts of will to the closest persons that may ultimately defeat the devil character rooted in everybody. The acquisition of sacredness by giving pains to the own body after being pierced with nails or praying with starvation or facing the heat of fire flares mobilizes their soul to such an extent where sacredness is weaved with them. Actually beneath the fact of submitting their respect to the name of almighty, they build up energy internally to bear all pain that is inevitable in human life.
The sacredness is not the extreme meaning of divine power in a spiritual way, but it also a resonance of peace of mind which conveys the harmony of life. The flowing of seven tunes may also the means of achieving the sacredness which also touches the Everest point of mind of the artist and listener with mystical ecstasy.
My photographs was aimed to frame the moment of life that is embedded with the thoughts of sacredness and the meaning of life, which is not only related to religious divinity, but also the branches of humanity.
