To all Guyanese on FH:

Please can you tell me when/where all the unique practices of Guyanese Hindus came about?

ie: hawan, chowtaal, phagwa

The unique way in which Guyanese chant mantras, some hawan practices ie: rubbing water on the hands and holding them out towards the hawan fire, and so on.

Maybe someone can post for me the lyrics of bhajans/mantras sung during a traditional Guyanese Hindu hawan service.

These practices are quite new to me and I am interested to understand more on this. Thank you! Jai Matha Ji!
