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

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
