blog: Writings from the Banks of Mother Ganga

A comment left a while ago told me about this bog,  Writings from the Banks of Mother Ganga.

The blog is written by Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, an American woman now living in Rishikesh. She is a devotee of Chidanand Saraswati, and spends most of her time in sewa and meditation. She writes comprehensively and informatively of her life in the ashram.

I enjoyed her greatly evocative account of how Mother Ganga rose and burst her banks, and the mixture of awe, devotion and fear that those present for this terrible but magnificent spectacle felt. I have added her blog to my list of blogs by other Western Hindus.

    Sadviji, like yourself and other western Hindu are inspiring. Thank you! Used to see her everyday on Aastha channel at 6.30, i think; a soulful Ganga aarti led by Muninji, swami Chidananda Sarawati – longtime friend of Gurudeva and the monks, on the banks of the river facing a glorious, huge and extremely beautiful Siva in meditation and the Parmath Niketan Ashram in the background.

    The huge Siva murti was dragged away into the Ganges following heavy rains and melting of snow from the Himalayan range. Remember seeing it televised early 2011, during my stay in India.

  3. Dear Tandava,hi and namaste.
    you have been very quiet these past few months, hope everything is fine there in Bradford ( I lived in England in 90s, a beautiful nation indeed).. Also i have this perennial trouble with opening ‘view posts by western hinuds’ link you generously included in your home page. (Yes, I do hit ‘enter’ key it works sometimes). Cheers.
