Ganga Saptami's Importance in 2023

Actually, Hinduism places a lot of importance to Ganga Saptami. The Ganga is recognised as one of the world's holiest and purest rivers. Like Vishnupadi was when she first arrived at Lord Vishnu's feet, Ganga has various names, including Shubhra, Gange, and Bhagirathi. In order to gain salvation, the ashes of the dead are immersed in ganga water during Shivaling Abhishekam. It is said to provide therapeutic qualities, provide protection from negativity, purify the body and spirit, and cleanse the body and soul.

Story of Ganga Saptami 2023

Hinduism claims that Goddess Ganga initially arrived on Earth on the day of Ganga Dussehra, but Saint Jahnu drank all of the Ganga's water. After Bhagirath urged Sage Jahnu to let the Ganga free, the Ganga returned to the country on the day of Ganga Saptami. Bhagirath prayed to Lord Brahma for comfort because he was sad that his forefathers were suffering as a consequence of their negative karma. He was told by Lord Brahma that Ganga would come to earth and purify the spirits of his forefathers, but he was also aware that the Goddess Ganga's surge may destroy everything. Lord Brahma gave Bhagirath the instruction to worship Lord Shiva in order to limit the Ganga's flow. Goddess Ganga entered the world on this fortunate day, giving it the name Bhagirathi.

Rituals for Ganga Saptami 2023

Everyone who visits a sacred location is required by Hinduism to take a dip in the Ganga river. The goddess Ganga, one of the most auspicious goddesses, is then prayed to by everyone. This is especially true on the day of Ganga saptami. Near the Ganges ghats, a number of groups of people get together to do the pitra puja for their ancestors. In addition, specific contributions are offered on Ganga Saptami since it is seen to be a very good day for philanthropic giving. Some individuals also donate food to eat on Ganga Saptami Day, especially to the brahmins.
