Baba Sheikh - Lalish, northern Iraq (2009)
Baba Sheikh, the Yezidian spiritual leader, receives well wishers under the pergola in the Sheikh 'Adi Sanctuary before and after the Sa'ama ceremony. I noticed this year (2010) that his blindness has become progressively more severe. Following protocol, the Yezidian Prince (Mir) will nominate one of Baba Sheikh's sons as successor when the time comes.
