Celebrating iron day in a car

Pagerwesi or 'iron fence' day is celebrated every 210 days (ie lunar year) and everything made of iron is decorated and offerings are being provided to keep the universe in balance. Further, iron is seen as a barrier against evil. Our car, naturally an iron car, had its offerings on the bonnet. As shown above you may spot the banana in the basket.

Below the banana is learning to fly. Not shown is that the banana landed on a biker. Unfortunately her month wasn't open.

Sanur, Bail, August 2009.

We also had our car blessed at Buddhist Temple in Colombo, but Jerome said he preferred to rely on our driver's skills than on divine intervention ... Quel mécréant !!!

so much blessing in this world. We live in a prayerhall here.

On top, it's ramadan right now. You can't get closer.

Allbest and Jerome is right!
