A new modern epic poem is presented; Ganga Gita, which in Sanskrit means Song of the Ganges, a poem about a spiritual journey, a pilgrimage, in India. Because of the importance of the river Ganges, a river that in some areas cannot be seen beyond to the other side, and thus is all-mesmerizing, a river like a sea in helpfulness to the people of India, this poem also is like a sea poured out in the wildness of inspiration. With the use of the word Gita, this epic is linked to two important texts in Indian poetic history, the Bhagavad-Gita, written about possibly fifth to second century anno an xpi nativitate (before christ), and the Gita Govinda of Jayadeva, written about 1200 anno domini (in the year of our lord). Thus, in these three texts about the lives and teachings and delights of the Lord Krishna, there are almost a thousand years separating each from each, and still the love of dear Hare Krishna continues; this is a blessing to worship the same lord for thousands of years In iambic pentameter, in English with much Sanskrit and Hindi vocabulary, and some Latin vocabulary, and a glossary to explain the abstruse words, this book was composed in simply unstoppable flows of erudition and ornamentation, and within it is truly the devanagri, the language of the gods. The action thrills the reader; the adventure; the suspense; the danger; the triumph With philosophical meanderings rippling through the text, with the picturesque poetic descriptions of Indian life and scenery, with the conversations of the heightened import, this text fascinates and enthralls If the reader prefers classicism, a text which reads as if it belongs to the classical repertoire of literature, then this is the book to read It seems as if it was written by a famous poet of an earlier era, and only discovered, just recently; it is destined to be a classic Effused in the spontaneity of the oracle, gifted to be heightened language, and luxuriating in the spirituality of the new age, which transcends mere allegiance to any one religion, thus to find that there is One Lord worshipped by all, if you liked the classic epic poems of history then you will also find this book transcendent This is the second of the three epic poems of Sapphire Pleiades. They are a gift to this galaxy through the auspices of the all-knowing lord
