The Dance of the fire is mesmerizing. This was taken at a Homam (a ritual in which making offerings into a consecrated fire is the primary action.). As the mantras are being chanted, clarified butter is poured into the fire as an offering. Every time it is poured, the fire blazes upward consuming the offering and dances around a bit before dimming. I barely knew what was going on with the ritual, with my camera in hand, I kept clicking snaps of the flame. The dance draws you towards the flame, I kept finding myself move closer to the fire subconsciously.
