Baptism of Jesus
Jesus as a young man goes to his cousine John to receive Baptism. John the Baptist is like a Rishi. He has become a Sadhu, and invites all to repent of their sins, and to bathe in the Holy waters. We are reminded of the "Thirtha Yatras" or pilgrimages which devout people undergo in order to find the source of the Holy rivers, and also the source of life in their own hearts.
