A Devata Gur In His Frenzied Ecstasy

 A 'Gur' is the oracle of the deity. In the religious ceremonies and festive occasions he displays his prowess of weaponry. Here he is putting the sword on  his tongue. He has bared  the upper part of his body. We can see accomplished 'Gurs' in ecstatic frenzy beating their body with iron chains and iron rods and can walk on burning embers. The 'Gur' is helped in this matter by the sweet and melodious Pahari bajagaga (Mountainous Band) and of course by the eager and ardent devotees of the deity.
