Mother Ganga — Best Spiritual Documentary on The Ganges River — 1080p HD

“Mother Ganga” is a unique documentary about the Ganges river based on “Our merciful Mother Ganga,” a book by Jay Vijay Das, filmed on location in April and March of 2003.

“Mother Ganga” portrays a pilgrimage, starting at the Bay of Bengal where the Ganges enters the sea (Ganga Sagar), to Gangotri and Gomukh in the Himalayan Mountains where the Ganges appears.

Along the journey, one can see images from significant places of pilgrimage such as Mayapur, Jaipur, Varanasi, Bodgaya, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Gangotri, and others.

“Mother Ganga” depicts the love and devotion the people of India have been exhibiting for thousands of years in the worship of Gangamayi.

The commentary consists of narratives and related stories found in the Vedas describing the Ganges’ spiritual origin, purifying power, descent to the material world, personal feature, etc.

“Mother Ganga” also contains footage capturing the atmosphere of ancient worship ceremonies, magnificent temples, impressive mystic yoga practice, etc.

The soundtrack for the film, recorded with particular shots in mind, is an interesting combination of traditional ragas and modern acoustic elements.

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
