About the CD

The film pans the snow-capped mountains of Himalaya to zoom in and capture the glimpses of Gaumukh Glaciers, from where Ganga emerges to create a civilization along her traverse of 2500 kms before merging in Bay of Bengal. It explores the Ganga Icon in her two earthly abodes, in Gangotri during summer, and 25 kms downhill, at Mukhba or Mukhimath, where she travels down after Deepawali.

The film captures the journey of Ganga Icon in her palanguin from Mukhba on the penultimate day before the Gangotri temple opens on the auspicious day of Akshayatritiya. The IGNCA’s camera team trekked 25 Kms to document various rituals, oral myths and socio-religious nuances that have been in vogue for several millennia. It highlights how village God Someshwar-devta comes to Mukhba to offer his reverence as now Ganga Icon goes to the Annapurna temple in the tapobhumi of Markandya Muni’s Ashram. Then the palanquin goes to Durga Siddha Peetha for Ganga’s second halt. Thereafter she journeys through rock boulders and pugdandis, foot tracks, to reach Jangla, a mythological station before reaching Kopang a ITBP camp. The procession now moves on to Bhairon Ghati, where the temple opens up to welcome Gangaji for the night halt. Then on Akshayatritiya, Gangaji’s yatra to reach Gangotri for its much celebrated opening. The film thus records the pada-yatra, journey on foot, of Gangaji, explores the oral tradition of Semwals, the priests of Ganga Devi, highlights the relation of nature with the Prashad benediction of Gangotri, covers the ritual of opening of the kapat, door, of Ganga Temple of Gangotri. Ganga Icon returns to Mukhba in the same manner after Deepawali Day every year.

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.
