From the CD

Naga or Snake worship is a hoary Indian Tradition. Naga worship is done to ward-off nagadosha and to ensure fertility ad prosperity. For thousands of years devouts have been coming to the land of Parasurama on the bank of Kumaradhara River, pilgrimage to the sacred Kukke Sri Subramania Kshetra. The film highlights the co-existence of traditional folk and classical belief system in temple rituals, agrarian theories and practices and, Naga as in the six realms in Buddhist tradition. It showcases Udupi, the temple town, and cruises through the typical ant hill style villages, where Nagas are worshipped alongside pitchers, decorated with serpents coiling upward. It also highlights the Naga bana where hundreds of naga-icons are kept at the base of trees as part of a functional agrarian ritual. It celebrates the Nagamandala in which 54 types of Naga ancestors are appeased with panda, placed on a rangoli, squared upon a yantra, to ward off evil. The snake coiled in polychromatic rangoli, daylong homas and night long dance of male and female nagas depict fertility and prosperity.
