On March 1st 500,000 people will walk to Delhi from Vrindavan,India(a 10 day walk) in protest of the river’s plight.This global kirtan is in support of the protest march.

The Yamuna is considered one of the sacred treasures of India.

*There is not one drop of Natural Fresh River Water in River Yamuna in Delhi & Beyond.
*85% of the Yamuna which emerges crystal clear in the Himalayas is being held back by an irrigation dam in the state of Haryana.
*In Delhi sewage and industrial waste is being emptied into it, until not a single drop of original Yamuna water is left by the time it reaches Vrindavan.
*What flows in Mathura – Vrindavan is simply filthy and heavily polluted sewage from Shahdra Drain of Delhi, polluted Hindon and other smaller wastewater drains.
*No amount of treatment can bring the qualities of Fresh natural water in a river. The river needs dilution capacity – minimum ecological flow at all costs. Any river does.
*Despite of Supreme Courts approved High Powered Committee’s directives, the minimum adequate flow of Natural Fresh Waters is not being allowed to flow in River Yamuna.
*Millions of religious/spiritual tourist visits the temple towns on River Yamuna every year. It is a shame that they are duped into bathing and drinking the filthiest of waters as none of them realize that it is only poisonous sewage. Their spiritual emotions and faith are being hoodwinked.

What is Kirtan?
It is the ancient call and response practice from India, where rhythmic singing in of mantra’s or names of God are sung in conjunction with instruments.It focuses the mind on divine sound vibration.They are ancient Vedic hymns,powerful and alive.It opens up the heart & lets the divine invade us with true love.
