Banāras, City of Light by Diana L Eck( Book )

42 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the oldest living cities in the world, Banaras is the holy place of the Hindus, as significant to them as Jerusalem is to Jews and Christians and Mecca is to Muslims. Referred to by Hindus as Kāshī (the Luminous), the city is visited by pilgrims from all over India, who come to bathe in the Ganges--many, indeed, to die on its sacred banks. Basing her work on Sanskrit texts and on her experience of the city itself, the author analyzes the art and architecture, geography, history, and anthropology of Banaras and describes its elaborate and thriving rituals, its myths and literature, and its continuing importance to religious seekers."--Book cover

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kumbh Mela is the largest celebration on earth: depending on the zodiacal positions of Jupiter, the sun, and the moon, Hindus travel to certain places along holy rivers, the Ganges for example, for the purpose of bathing and cleansing themselves of sin. In 1989 fifteen million people are said to have attended, in 2001 around thirty million, and in 2013 approximately thirty-four million. In order to transport, house, and feed these enormous crowds of people, functioning temporary structures are required, which in each case are created by the communities hosting the gathering. In 2013, a team from Harvard University monitored the large-scale event from its preparation to the actual celebration itself. The volume presents the comprehensive research findings and includes city maps, aerial images, and photographs
