Ganga

Posted on April 04 2016

 

It is believed that the Ganges river originally flowed only through heaven.  Legend has it that the mortal King Sagar performed intense austerities to bring down the goddess Ganga down to earth to sanctify the remains of his sons.  Ganga descended from heaven with such force that it was feared she would flood the earth. To prevent this, Shiva cushioned her fall with his hair, dividing her into seven rivers.  Ganga then traveled to earth, purifying all that she touched.  By bathing in the Ganges, one is cleansed of sin and able to attain moksha.
