Presentation of the Child in the Temple.
According to the Gospel of Luke, when Jesus was a few weeks old, he was taken by his parents and presented to the temple, as part of a ritual of purification and naming the child. It is on this occasion that two wise old people in the temple, prophecy about the future role of the child in redeeming the people. In this picture I have shown the temple of Udipi, and sacred tank, in the background.
