Ragahala Kandyan Dance – Fire Walking: Kandy, SRI LANKA

In a 200 person capacity theatre, behind the great Kandyan Temple of the Tooth, we witnessed some extraordinary dance, music and fire walkiing. The origins of this classical art can be traced back to the epic story fo Rama and Sita. Today devotees who perform fire walking seek the divine blessings (so the theatre doesn't burn down?) of Lord Kataragama and Goddess Pattini. At 2:13 there is an extraordinary burst of fire!
