According to Hindus, the river Ganga is sacred and a feminine river that is personified as a Devi goddess, who holds a significant place in Hinduism. 
Hindu faith holds that bathing in the river, especially on certain occasions, causes the forgiveness of sins and helps to attain salvation.

incredible india (by Pascal Mannaerts)
That’s what I believe. I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased toward consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it - or my observation of it - is temporary? John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via emotional-algebra)
