Save Ganga and Yamuna Campaign
For saving Indian rivers that are in dangerous condition because of heavy pollution. Ganga and Yamuna are on top of the list. Join us to save them.

Save Mother Yamuna


Yamuna is one of the most sacred rivers and is revered by for all the followers of Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism). Despite its exalted religious status, the river is facing severe contamination. The Yamuna in Delhi receives no fresh water because of diversion of the water to several canals at Hathini Kund dam. The river has only sewage and effluents which flows across the city. The picture below clearly depicts the stoppage of natural water at Hathini Kund damn and the diversion into various canals. The problem needs strong call of action and stringent approach to save the river from the noxious city sewage.

Rivers In India

Ganga Devi

Ganga Devi

India is the land of several rivers. These rivers are personified as goddesses and worshipped and revered by all. It is a practice in Indian religion to view rivers, places and mountains as people and respect them. Every river is governed by its anthropomorphic form which is a goddess. Goddess Ganga (Ganges) is the mother of all rivers and exemplifies India’s culture and religious beliefs. She is an integral part of Indian pantheon and is believed to sustain life and clean all sins.

River Ganga is exalted at a supreme and most sacred status in Hindu religion because she touches the lotus feet of Lord Krishna, a highlight deity in the pantheon, when he appears as Lord Vaman Dev in Satya Yuga. This legend gave the river Ganges a sacrosanct appeal such that taking a dip in the river is believed to cleanse any pervious sins.

Avatarana (Descent of the Ganga).

According to the Holy Scriptures, River Ganga is believed to have originated from the divine waters of spiritual realm. She is believed to have descended  in material world during the Satya Yuga when Lord Vaman Dev was covering the whole universe by his three steps. But she remains to stay in the heavenly planets until King Bhagirath practices austere penance to bring her down to the earth.
