Hindus to Oprah : Take a dip in holy Ganges

Oscar nominated media personality ‘ jack of all trades’ Oprah Winfrey is reportedly scheduled to visit holy city of Rishikesh in India and Hindus are suggesting her to immerse in yoga, meditation and take a dip in sacred river Ganges while she is there.

Panjabi / NationalTurk – Hindu leader Rajan Zed announced in a statement  that Oprah Winfrey should make use of her trip to India to “rediscover” herself by spending some time in an ashram (hermitage) and taking a dip in holy Ganges. It is believed that bath in the sacred Ganges purifies one of all sin, and its water if taken daily confers immortality. It finds mention in Rig-Veda, oldest existing scripture of mankind. It also means Hindus think the famous American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer and philanthropist has sinned.

Rajan Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that ashram stay would help bring Oprah Winfrey and everyone tranquility, spirituality and serenity. Lord Krishna himself went to sage Sandipani’s ashram to gain knowledge, Zed added.

Ganges flows through Rishikesh (in Uttarakhand state), known as Gateway to Himalayas, which attracts large number of pilgrims from around the world. It is a vegetarian and alcohol-free city; full of temples, yoga centers and ashrams; and nicknamed “World Capital of Yoga”. It is said to have been visited by Lord Rama and his brother Lakshmana; and Hindu scholars Swami Vivekananda, Swami Rama Tirtha and Swami Shivananda studied here. In 1968, The Beatles stayed in a Rishikesh ashram to contemplate and meditate and composed 48 songs during that time. “The Happy Rishikesh Song” was recorded by John Lennon.

Oprah Winfrey is currently in India on a week-long trip.

Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and moksha (liberation) is its ultimate goal.

    It doesnt mean that Operah has sinned if she bathes in the Holy Ganges, as humans are not perfect, and we make mistakes and probably sin now and again. Bathing in the Ganges is more of a purification method.
