The Kavadi Walk is supposedly for truth seekers that puts their bodies and minds on the right level of perception.

The heavy frame that the truth seekers wear carries multiple spears that subtly put pressure on their chests. The balance that is required to carry the frame renews the carrier’s energy as they walk to feel the power of truth.

Implications - Body modification and tattoos are becoming mainstream; to stay edgy, people are pushing the boundaries even further and exploring ancient religious and cultural rituals. From walking on hot coals to temporary piercings, modern devotees who choose to participate in these rituals connect with human history, tradition and primeval practices.
