Sacred Ritual For Michael

Michael, who visited India in 1996, was very knowledgeable about Indian culture and the Hindu religion and therefore his fans there, have performed the ‘pind-daan’ ritual for salvation and peace, in Vishnupad Temple on the bank of the Falgu River.

Hindus believe that ‘pind-daan’ performed during the fortnight long pitrapaksh period every year brings relief to departed souls.

Six weeks prior to Michael’s death, it was reported that he was reading poetry by the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore and that he visited Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Neasden, London in 1999 and that later he went to Bhaktivedanta Manor, run by International Society for Krishna Consciousness near Watford, London which contains the statues of Hindu lord Krishna and his consort Radha.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has also urged the government of India to honour Michael posthumously by issuing a postage stamp if nothing else.
