Hinduism - What Is Charanamrta?

 




 ("nectar of the feet") Literally, the water (or other liquid) in which one's guru's feet or god representations are washed. 



It is consumed by the student or devotee (bhakta) as a symbol of subordination and as a means of receiving grace and benefits. 


By extension, the term may apply to any liquid consumed by devotees as a sign of the deity's favor, regardless of whether it has been used for washing (snana).
