Pilgrims of Poorna Song

Ambient music, 2020

The pilgrims of Poorna would walk hundreds of kilometres some barefoot, mothers with their infants, old men, women and children in some makeshift conveyance. Some walk with an idol or a symbol of the goddess and some performing surya namaskara all the way to the temple which ends with 7 km mountain hike.

All this in the blistering heat of the Indian summer with temperatures soaring higher than 45 degrees.

These pilgrims are usually farmers who after harvest travel to the temple to thank the goddess for her blessing, some come with a wish for a child and some to thank her for blessing a child and some for Bhakti and some for health.

I was amazed by the sheer dedication and faith. I say this all the time that my trips to India makes me appreciate the value of life more & more and increases my gratitude.

I dedicate this music to the pilgrims of Poorna.

I would love to hear from you about how the music made you feel, did it take you to a journey somewhere?
