A few years ago, I went to Malaysia and travelled to the #BatuCaves during #Thaipusam which is a Hindu religious ceremony.  Patronage to the top of the caves was a parade of incredible feats showing what mind over body can really mean. Just to name some of the things I saw: people rolling up the stairs while being whipped, some wore hooks in their skin with weights on them while others had knives through their mouthes.  It is still one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen in my life. #Malaysia #hindu #hinduism #religion #atonement #wanderlust #travel
