This extensive scriptural account of how the celestial River Ganga travels throughout the universe, by Jaya Vijaya Dasa. This is an exquisite and beautifully designed production. Sri Caitanya-bhagavata states that in the age of Kali, Lord Krishna exists in four forms: Srimad-Bhavatam, Tulasi, Vaisnavas, and Ganga. This book compiles the pastimes of Ganga-devi from Vedic literature with emphasis on her significance to Gaudiya Vaisnavism. Starting from her identity as a maid servant in Goloka Vrndavana, we learn of her origins as a sacred river and follow her lengthy course throughout the three planetary systems. The book includes narrations about Ganga-devi from the Puranas, her exalted nature and glories, and her pastimes from Gomukh, high in the Himalayas, to Ganga-sagara, where she meets the Bay of Bengal.
