Description

Dévot au bord du Gange au-dessus de la syllabe Om ou Aum (Om est le son primordial)

Varanasi, autrefois appelée Bénarès, est située au bord du Gange, à la confluence des fleuves Varunā et Assī. C'est l'une des plus importantes villes sacrées de l'Hindouisme. Son nom traditionnel est Kâshî, la cité lumineuse de Shiva.

Varanasi est la Ville-lumière et la Ville-du-Savoir, consacrée à Shiva. Le Linga-d'Eau y est vénéré.

La ville est célèbre pour ses ghāts, qui sont des berges recouvertes de marches de pierres permettant aux dévots hindous de descendre au fleuve pour y pratiquer ablutions et pūjās. Sur certains ghāts, les crémations sont rituellement pratiquées.
