Dogon. A mysterious, ancient people and culture, the Dogons were the first to have knowledge of the universe as we know it today. They knew the 9 planets and the elements they were made of centuries before any telescopes were invented. Their Calendar is different from other cultures, too, and has similarities to the Mayan culture of South America.
Ganga Aarti at Har Ki Paudi, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India. Mystical union of fire, water, earth, air and akasha. Have bathed here three times in my life so far and want my ashes scattered here in the arms of Mother Ganga. | by Sunrider007's on Flickr
