Resident Evil Village DLC Announced

Resident Evil Village had no season pass or much in the way of future plans outside of RE: Verse, the attached multiplayer project coming in July. However, Capcom has just revealed that it is creating DLC for Resident Evil Village “due to popular demand.” The publisher and developer did not give any details on what this upcoming DLC would be.And that might be because it is very early in development and likely wasn’t planned beforehand, hence the lack of a season pass. The slide announcing the DLC said Capcom was just starting on it, meaning we probably won’t see anything for some time. The slide ended with Capcom promising “more info later.”MORE: Netflix’s Live-Action Resident Evil Series Reveals Main CastResident Evil has had a bunch of odd DLC.

The first Murti is now at Beyt Dwarka which was bought here to protect it from foreign invaders, the first Murti was believed to be worshipped by Rukmini herself. The second murti is at Dakor. The story goes that there was a little girl who was a devotee of Sri Krishna who used to travel from Dakor to Dwarka. Pleased by her devotion, Sri Krishna decided to go along with her and priests suspected that the girl had stolen the idol and when they approached the little girl, she paid them with gold coins and now the second idol sits at Dakor. Priests suspected that there is another idol at Savitri Taalav and when they dug the place in a hurry an incomplete idol came out. This is the current image of Sri Krishna that is being worshipped. The idol of Sri Krishna faces the western direction which suggests that he might be looking at the sea where his city has been submerged.

Ceremonies As mentioned before, the temple is busy all day long where they follow a strict routine. During the day, there will be aarti, darshans, and bhogs. The activities mean, devotees converse with the deity and offer food.  Throughout the day, the Shringar of the deity is changed and every time the shringar is changed, the backdrop of the deity is changed where the deity is put on with amazing jewellery. Flag Hoisting Ceremony One of the striking features of the Dwarkadish temple is its flags. And every time you look, a different colored flag will be visible as it is changed 3 times in morning hours and twice evening hours. There is a waiting list of 2 years for a person to sponsor flags. The flags itself hold great importance here. The family sponsoring the flag should feed all the Brahmanas in Dwarka and they bring the flag singing and dancing to the temple premises. The flag is then offered to the deity where a person from the Brahmin community goes up and changes the flag. The flag that is sponsored comes with a lot of rules where it should measure 52 yards. 52 smaller flags are attached to the large flag representing 52 sub-casts of yadavas. Another theory says 52 represents the 52 doors that Dwarka once had. The flag can be of any color except black and the flag should have a sun and a moon emblem on it. Add to Bookmarks
