i am collecting information on river mahatmyas. i am especially interested
to know for which rivers mahatmyas exist.
I know that mahatmyas exist for the Narmada river.
Anne Feldhaus (in her work "Water and Womanhood", 1995) has reported a
number of mahatmyas for rivers in Maharashtra, i.e. the Godavari, Bhima,
Payosni (Purna), Tapi, Krsna. Now, all these texts seem to cover a rather
limited geographical area. My question is: Are there any such texts
composed for more distantly located rivers?
Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
thanks and best regards
