From the CD

Varansi – the holy city situated on the banks of Ganga – the most sacred river of Hindus – is the city of knowledge, the city of Lord Shiva, the city that celebrates both life as well as death. The documentary has presented the spectacular scenes of manifestation of faith on the ghats of Ganga – the river that has never changed its course and is worshipped as a goddess. Some rituals or customs may seem to be illogical or irrational, but it is faith that sustains the people and gives a meaning to these.

The surprising part may be the women celebrating the marriage of Saligram – black stone with Tulsi, a herb. But Saligram represents god Vishnu, and Tulsi, the holy herb, stands for Vrinda, a great devotee who had achieved spiritual strength because of her piety and meditation. It is god Vishnu who ordains that she would be worshipped as the herb Tulsi and her symbolic marriage with Saligram is celebrated every years.

Have a bath in Ganga and get your sins washed off. It you want to be successful in life, then offer prayers for five days – Bhishm Panchak – in remembrance of the great Warrior of Mahabharata, Bhisam Pitamaha, who lay on a bed of arrows during the last days of his life to fulfil his pledge. All great saints and holymen, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Adi Shankaracharya, Kabir, Tulsidas, Ravidas have made their journey to this place.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
