From the Banks of the Ganges
“I am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganges, – astronomy, astrology, metempsychosis, etc.
It is very important to note that some 2,500 years ago at the least Pythagoras went from Samos to the Ganges to learn geometry…
But he would certainly not have undertaken such a strange journey had the reputation of the Brahmins’ science not been long established in Europe.”
(Voltaire – French Enlightenment writer, essayist, and philosopher, 1694-1778)
This was shot at sunset along the holy waters of the Ganges at Jatar ghat in Varanasi (Benaras), the oldest living city in the world.
Happy Navratri to everyone !
