Couldn’t resist publishing this pic….
A mirror is immersed in a large pan containing red-coloured water and placed right at the feet of the idol, so that the entire idol is reflected in it. It is a symbolic repreesntation of the actual visarjan and is also known as “Darpan visarjan”. One of my most fav rituals, I enjoy the myth surrounding the ritual more. It is said that ladies who dip their fingers in this water go on to possess great culinary skills 😉
