In the spirit of Father Anastasios' disclaimer at the bottom of his posts, I feel that--now that this has been resurrected--I need to step away from my remarks a bit. It is true that this type of ceremony is only observed in India (Taft says it's done in Ethiopia, but no Ethiopian has ever confirmed this for me). I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it's heretical, but it (to me) is clearly something we picked up from a non-Orthodox tradition (in this case, Roman Catholicism ca. 16th-17th cent.), and, while beautiful when served correctly, is a distraction both when served correctly and when not served correctly, and at any rate is a pain in the neck to serve correctly. My practical experience as well as historical and theological reflection have led me to not care as much for the practice as I once did.
Also, the 101 incident looked cool from the photos. Having actually seen video of the thing, it's atrocious. Typically it's three. You shouldn't have much more than that IMO.
