Days Mission to
accomplish the goal
Known as Ma Ganga —Mother Ganges—the river is revered as a goddess whose purity cleanses the sins of the faithful and aids the dead on their path toward heaven. But while her spiritual purity has remained unchallenged for millennia, her physical purity has deteriorated as pollution imposes an ever-growing burden. Ganges’ divine waters purify those who immerse themselves in the river. It is even said that a single drop of Ganges water, carried by the wind over a great distance, can cleanse a lifetime of sins. In cities along the river, daily dips and floating deepams are an important ritual among the faithful. Many cities are considered sacred and serve as pilgrimage sites. Many people from all over the world travels great distances to scatter the ashes of loved ones in the Ganges to attain salvation.
Every one of us has a role to play in revitalizing Ma Ganga. Contribute to the cause by donating areca palm leaf cups. Every bio-degradable cup you donate will replace a silver foiled paper cup in the Ghats as well as improves the livelihood of its producers.
