Unless they were covered the oil may flow to the eyes and makes disturbance to the Dhara process. There will be ‘Dhara’ stand in which the’ Dhara Pot’ is hanged. The oil from the Dhara Pot will flow smoothly on forehead, scalp and skull. Then the client will feel comfort and solace. Dhara aims on holistic health. Dhara will last 45 minutes.
