Special 'aarti' takes place in Varanasi for Nepal earthquake victims

Varanasi people prayed for the victims of the Nepal earthquake as a special 'deepdan' and 'aarti' took place at the Dashashwamedh Ghat near Vishwanath Temple.

The 'aarti' took place on Saturday evening as a special ode for peace of the departed souls by the priests of Vishwanath Temple, where the priests offered prayers to 'Maa Ganga' and 'Baba Vishwanath'.

"We have organised a 'deepdan' for the peace of the demised victims of the earthquake that took place in Nepal today. Three 'aartis' will take place. We have also kept observed silence for their peace", said Mayansh, a priest of Nepali origin at the Vishwanath Temple.

"We have organised this special 'aarti' for all those affected in the Nepal earthquake. Prayers are being offered to Maa Ganga and Baba Vishwanath for the peace of those who have died", said the President of Ganga Seva Nidhi, Sushant Mishra.

Earlier in the day, a strong earthquake measuring 7.7 magnitude hit east of Pokhara in Nepal, around half way between the town and the capital Kathmandu.

The earthquake was 31 km deep and tremors were felt as far as New Delhi and other northern cities in India.
