14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
In Pursuit of Attainment

I visited a Hindu priest school in Varanasi. Everyday before sunrise the young priests convene on the ghat steps in front of the school for a session of yoga, meditation, chants and morning prayer by the holy river Ganges. They are taught Hindu scriptures and the ancient language, Sanskrit.
