Donkey Worship

untitled (1 of 1)

Donkey Worship

Usually the words ‘Donkey” “Ass” are used in a derogatory way ( Dumb ass,Jackass etc meaning people who are stupid or of very low intelligence ), even parading the donkeys during the times of Protests ( i don’t know about other countries but in India, it is a common occurrence). May be a kind of public humiliation.I do not know  why should Donkey be referred  as a stupid creature,when it is said to be an intelligent creature. I think it is the usual dominant human trait  to do injustice to the  donkey .

The other day I was surprised to come across a hung photo frame of two donkeys with Flower Garland,  at the entrance point in one of the shops.The flower indicates that Donkey is being worshiped ,daily.The local language in the photo mentions that ” Have a look at the Donkeys…. and Good fortune follows ” So I realized it is a good Omen to see Donkey face in the morning before one ventures into the routine tasks.So I was glad Donkeys are given due respect,they deserve.

As I googled I learnt a new term ONOLATRY which means Donkey worshiping,used in ancient times.

I learnt that ‘Sheetala Ashtami’ (March-April) celebrated in Rajasthan ( North Indian State) when woman folks worship the Donkey,for well being of children and people.Goddess Sheetala is said to be Goddess of Smallpox and Goddess Sheetala’s Photo frame along with a broom and water filled pot are  kept on the Donkey.Why the Donkey is chosen for this purpose…I am not sure.May be friends from Rajasthan can enrich us with better understanding
