Whether coming for salvation, prosperity, or healing, most of these pilgrims have sought some form of ritual purification – a means of unloading their troubles and sins upon stars and holy men, the river Ganga, and the many sacred tanks fed by her springs and tributaries.

Christians, be ye more serious in your movements; Be ye not like a feather at each wind, And think not every water washes you.
