This book covers the wisdom of words from the river Mother Ganga, that will give a real understanding in simple words and lines with important messages through experiences knowing the value of Rishikesh & Gangotri (Land of gods) and the wisdom of Yoga & Life. It has different lines under the realm of Universe, Nature, Human, Life Emotions, Motivations, Knowledge, Wisdom and finally the lines on ‘Who Am I’ that has the message of Swami Sundaranand Ji (90 year old living Yogi and Author of ‘HIMALAYA through the lens of a Sadhu’, who is the direct disciple of Swami Tapovan Maharaj Ji (Author of Wandering in the Himalayas) and Co-disciple of Swami Chinmayananda Ji who formed Chinmayanand Mission. This book is a real blessing from Mother Ganga to read.
One must really find an opportunity to visit Rishikesh and Gangotri to get the blessings of Mother Ganga and know and learn the true value of Yoga wherever you are in the world. This book is all about bringing that awareness of these great places and the great wisdom.
The learning and experiences from Vipasana Meditation (Buddhism), Yoga from great masters like Swami Atma Ji, Vipin Prasad Baloni and Gangesha Chaitanya from Rishikul Yogshala at Rishikesh and the experiences through Yoga while visiting cities and countries and discussing with people from different culture and facets hve helped to know more about the true value of the Indian traditional Wisdom of Yoga. Based on that learning, practices and experiences all these lines were coined at the foot of Mother Ganga every morning. The last part of the book ‘Who Am I?’ was written at Gangotri after visiting Gomukh - the origin of Mother Ganga. With deep humbleness and the blessings of Sundaranand Swami Ji, it is a joy to offer this book to all of you on the First International Yoga Day - 21st June 2015 to honor all great yogis who have carried this wisdom to us so far and ultimately by surrendering this book to the lotus feet of Mother Ganga. Blessings and Shivoham..!
With the blessings of Mother Ganga and the amazing journey from Rishikesh to Gangotri on the Himalayas, writing these words with the instruction of a Sadhu and spending time every morning in the bank of the river Mother Ganga at Rishikesh, the author, Velmaran, in what would become his most enduring and fulfilling book intended that the value of Gangotri and Rishikesh where many yogis and rishis lived and still live offering the most valuable knowledge and wisdom of Yoga should be shared with many people across the world to experience these values.
"Words from the River Mother Ganga" was the best way to surrender to Mother Ganga as all the words and experiences and messages are written in the same way as Mother Ganga flows. Let Go and Let's Flow.
