KUMBH MELA – INTRODUCTION
(Jan to Apr 2010)

"The Ganga, especially, is the river of India, beloved of her people, around which are intertwined her memories, her hopes and fears, her songs of triumph, her victories and her defeats. She has been a symbol of India's age long culture and civilization, ever changing, ever flowing, and yet ever the same Ganga."

Jawaharlal Nehru – 1st Prime Minister of India 1947 - 1964

Nothing in the world can quite compare with the colour, gaiety, wellbeing or religious fervour of Indian festivals. And no Indian festival can quite equal the vibrancy of the Kumbh Mela – held in worship of the sacred River Ganges, of the age-old battle of Good versus evil and of the obvious and ultimate victory of good.

All major Indian festivals are related to the worship of water and the rivers in one form or the other. The Kumbh, however, takes precedence over them all, as the festival that worships the life-giving Ganga or “Ma Ganga” (Mother), as the river is referred to.

The holiest of all the rivers, Ganga or the Ganges is a perennial river, held in high regard by the Hindus. The Ganga has an exalted position in the Hindu ethos. It is repeatedly invoked in the Vedas, the Puranas, and the two Indian epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Babies are baptized in the river because it is believed it has qualities that cleanses the child; Similarly, when a Hindu dies and is cremated, the ashes are released into the river, for it is believed that only then does the soul receive absolution and is free to join its’ source, the “Maker”.

The Ganga is also worshipped as a goddess, Ganga Devi, one of the two daughters of Meru (the Himalayas), the other being Uma, the consort of Lord Shiva.
