It is hard for me to imagine the mass slaughter and decapitation of over 10,000 water buffalo, just to show appease the Hindu goddess of power - Gadhimai. And what other 240,000 animals they will kill during this celebration? Chandan Dev Chaudhary, a Hindu priest, said he was pleased with the festival's high turnout this year. He insisted tradition had to be kept. "The goddess needs blood," he said. "Then that person can make his wishes come true."
What can we as Lutherans do to bring more of our brothers and sisters around the world the good news that Christ's blood has already paid for them in full?
