Good morning everybody!

For RE this week, I would like you to think about the Hindu pilgrimage to the River Ganges.  Hindus believe that the River Ganges is a mother goddess and travel huge distances to bathe in her waters.

 

  • Read the information sheet I have downloaded
  • Look at the beautiful pictures on the powerpoint.
  • Read the glossary to help you with your understanding. 
  • Find the river Ganges in an atlas or on google earth.
  • Find the city of Varanasi.

 

When you have worked through all of the above, try to answer at least one of these questions:

  • Why do Hindus go on pilgrimage to Varanasi?
  • Why is it considered a good thing to be in the holy city of Varanasi at the time of your death?
  • Describe similarities between the significance of water in the Hindu religion and the significance of water in one other religion.
