A Green Birthday on Mother Ganga
Pujya Swami Nalinanand Giri Maharajji from Patiala, Punjab, came to the banks of Mother Ganga with 500 of his loving disciples on the occasion of his birthday.

As the River Ganga flowed serenely past, Pujya Swamiji and Pujya Swami Nalinanand Giri Maharajji took part in a special sunset water blessing ceremony, with prayers for a clean Ganga and water, sanitation and hyginene for all. Later in the evening, Pujya Swami Nalinanand Giri Maharajji, with his devotees, pledged to take the message of environmental preservation and green action with them wherever they go, and to celebrate all of their birthdays, holidays and festivals as green ones.
