  • Rivers, in general, embody many different values to different people.
    • For example, rivers symbolize connections, since they touch everyone, and everybody in principle lives downstream.
    • Rivers also symbolize human health, since freshwater from rivers is essential to our communities and ourselves. Another value embodied in a river is that of habitat, highlighting the importance of protecting freshwater ecosystems for fish and wildlife both in the river itself and along its banks.
  • Hindus have always believed that the water of the Ganges River has purifying powers.
    • Although millions of people bathe in the river regularly, it does not usually spread cholera, typhoid, or other water-borne diseases.
