गङ्गा गङ्गेति यो ब्रूयाद्योजनानां शतैरपि ।
मुच्यते सर्वपापेभ्यो विष्णुलोकं स गच्छति ॥
My readers, after a brief stint with Poetries and Shayari’s on Maa Ganga, let us turn our attention today to Her flow. To witness it we are blessed with the pictures and videos from Gangotri to Ganga Sagar.
Today I want to talk less and let the pictures do the talking for me.
We begin our pilgrimage from Ganga Glacier to Gaumukh to Gangotri Dham.
The flow downwards
The Bhagirathi and the Alaknanda merging
From there to Rishikesh – Laxman Jhula
And Haridwar – Ganga Aarti
To Patna – Gandhi Ghat
And the most divine Triveni Sangam – Prayaagraj
Onto Kashi, Banaras and the famous Ganga Aarti
And lastly to Kolkatta – Dakshineshwar Mandir on Her ghats
And the culmination at Ganga Sagar.
A beautiful journey from the Shiv in the mountains to the Vishnu in the oceans…
A journey to cherish…
Am sure that the actual journey would be quite happiness giving, enlightening and divine…
Pray to Maa Ganga to make us capable to see, feel and understand Her journey…
I end today with a couplet shared by one of my good friends, a poet by heart and words, a brother – in – arms and a rational yet God – loving human being, Gaurang.
मां, तेरे प्यार को मैं चातक सा तरसूं,
काश ! तू आए बादल से सावन होकर ।
PS : Should have put up more pics but mine is just a small attempt to arouse the love for Maa Ganga amongst myself and you all, my dear readers.
