Katha

Katha

Katha is a religious educational session given on Hindu Holy scriptures. It is devised for the mass and is normally performed by a widwan, a learned person, a priest, a yogi or swami.  The most popular kathas organised in Mauritius are on the Ramayana and Mahabarat. Katha was initially introduced in Mauritius by the late Professor Basdeo Bissoondoyal.

Katha is a religious ceremony where mantras are recited around a fire place. Fire in Hinduism is life. By praying fire we pay allegiance to life and God.
