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

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
