Gradation of sacred rivers of India and glory of river

Dr. N Venkatesha Rao Ganga and Sri Vadiraja

In our Indian culture rivers are not just considered as storages of water. They are respected and worshipped by all with great reverence. Starting from respecting of small amount of water in a vessel as kalasha, even pools, rivers and seas are respected. The term “nadimata” (नदीमाता) refers to its nature of nourishing all irrespective of caste, creed and gender. It quenches our thirst and facilitates cultivation. Relevant mantras are uttered to pass on from generation to generation. Our study is confined to gradation of sacred rivers and glory of river Ganga as seen in a stotra done by Raghavendra tirtha and in Tirthaprabandha composed by saint poet Vadiraja.
