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.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
