When one thinks of fire walking in Fiji, images of Indigenous Fijians fire walking on hot stones come to mind. This type of fire walking is called Na Vilavilirevo and originated on the island of Beqa. Traditionally, the annual event required months of perpetration under the direction of cheif. Today, it's a popular tourist show at Pacific Harbor and other resorts around Fiji and can be seen six days a week. It's not a show to miss, but a world apart from the religious significance of the southern Indian Hindu tradition.
The Hindu tradition of Fire Pooja is a bit more sacred. It's a 3 to 10 day event with prayer, fasting and meditation leading up to a climax event of body piercing and walking repeatedly across hot coals. In Suva it's held at the 'Then India Sanmarga Ikya Sangam's (TISI Sangam) Raj Maha Mariamman Temple on Howell street.
