Descent of The Ganges
Worlds in layers with beings billion,
Gods and Humans, Animals and Demons.
Strong tusked elephants, lions and deer,
Sage Bhagiratha in penance without fear.
A central rift hewing the massive rock,
The mirroring line to which all worlds flock.
The nether world's snake gods in adulation, ascend,
Making way for the mighty Ganges to descend.
