All About Ganga
All About Ganga
Description
Preface

The Gita, the Ganga and the Gayatri are the three legs of the tripod upon which Hinduism stands. They represent our systems of philosophy, rituals and spiritual disciplines.

Ganga can be called the Mother River or the National River of India. To take a bath in it has been a lifetime's ambition with an average Hindu even from the ancient days. A person on the verge of death dies peacefully if a few drops of the Ganga water are introduced into his mouth. Even an unclean place is made fit for a holy act when sprinkled with the water of Ganga. This is how Ganga has been revered by us over the last few millenniums.

This booklet purports to give in a nutshell all the essential information about this holy river of hoary antiquity. It should also rouse, it is hoped, our conscience to keep it and its surroundings clean.

May the Mother Ganga bless us all

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
