qnd, tamarind splashing in Jront of us. But it wqs grcat! We loved itl! Nrsirhha Kavaca and Sarvyasici were up or-r the platforrns above the cleities, and otrce we'cl finished on Advaita Aclrya, they pourecl bucketfuls of water over Him to rinse Him off. Therr Rasarani, Tara, and I rubbccl Him clry with rowels whilc Bhakta Gana carefully wiped His [ace.
