Temple Candles

Lighting the Sacred Flame

Lighting the Sacred Flame

The rain finally started to let up. As it did, this woman walked out from beneath the shelter and lit one of the sacred flames then put an offering in the box. This was a Buddhist temple and the lady was most likely a Hindu. But I learned from my driver that many in Nepal worship both Buddha and Hindu gods….just in case.
