The Gush of the Gurgling Ganges
The holy rivers of Ganga and Yamuna emerge from the subtle cosmic plane in the heavens and manifest on the physical plane of earth. They descend to quench the thirst of humanity through the Himalayas. The Himalayan ranges feed the mighty rivers that flow into India and its surrounding countries. These lofty mountain ranges are the source of energy flows into India it’s no coincidence that they are home to various mystics from the hoary past till date. People perform austere penances on the banks of Ganges to attain peace and salvation.
The Ganges gushes on relentlessly like the unstoppable time which consumes everything that it encounters. The endless sins of all who come to it instantly dissolve into nothingness just as darkness is devoured instantaneously by light.
Even as a small flame is adequate to destroy huge stacks of hay. A single dip is adequate to atone for all the sins incurred and accumulated. One is freed of all burdens and it’s time to start anew in a new direction.
