Hindu rituals of self-purification and salvation may be a shock to western eyes, but in Sri Lanka they remain a part of everyday life. Achim Lippoth had the opportunity to observe Hindu priests perform one of the rituals at a family ceremony for this young Hindu boy. The image is part of a series that Lippoth made on a trip through South Asia. To see more of Achim’s work click here.
