Nevada (US), June 17 (ANI): There are "Narada Falls" in the Washington state of USA.
This most popular horsetail type waterfall in Mount Rainier National Park in Lewis County near Paradise, where waterfall drops 188 feet, was named by Arthur F. Knight in 1893. Upper part of this waterfall freezes in winter and becomes icicles, which attracts many ice climbers from afar. Its source is glacier and it flows year round.
Esteemed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, admiring the fascination of West with Hindu names, urged it also to explore the rich philosophical thought which Hinduism offered.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that some formations in world famous Grand Canyon National Park (Arizona, USA) were named as Shiva Temple, Krishna Shrine, Vishnu Temple, Rama Shrine, Brahma Temple (7851 feet), and Hindu Amphitheater.
Legendary Narada maharishi was mentioned in Atharva-Veda. He was said to be the author of various texts of Hinduism, Brahma's son, chief of Gandharvas, inventor of vina; and was known as messenger between gods and men, mischief maker, a great wanderer, etc.
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal.(ANI)
