Description

The Indian people adore the Ganga. Through centuries, the sacred Ganga has housed on her bewitching and enchanting banks, thousands of Saints, Sages, Yogis, Rishis, men of contemplation and supernormal powers. She also carries legends and myths about herself that evoke wonder, inspire a sense of sanctity, and compel even the most rational person conceive a sense of sacredness for her. The highest Indian aspirations, piety, ceremonies are bound up with the very name of the most beautiful river Ganga that takes her origin right in the interior Himalayas.

While every Hindu adores the Ganga, Swami Sivananda’s love for her is unprecedented. He had been clinging to a small set of rooms on the bank of the Holy River for more than three decades, only because from there he could commune with the Mother always, day and night.

The first edition of this book was brought out in 1949. Much new material has now been added. The ‘Sri Ganga Sahasranama Stotram’ has also been included in the present edition.
