“The core of my being is the ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the soul of all that exists”. This was the philosophy that was practised in Banganga thousand years back.
Last sunday we did a workshop at Banganga. Here is a bit about the place. As the legendary story goes… Ram during his ‘vanvas ” wanted to offer water to his father posthumouly, so he asked Laxman for it. Laxman with his powerful spiritual arrows punched a hole in the ground so abyssmal that Ganges flowed through it. Thus the name – Banganga. The place was built around 1100 AD and is till date worshiped for pitri – pakshya offerings. ( Rituals for your dad posthumously ). Here are some photos from the workshop.
