The Descent of Mother Ganga

Today is the supremely auspicious day when Mother Ganga descended to Earth on the fervent request of King Bhagiratha. Ganga devi is known to come directly from the transcendental plane and carries with her the two
spiritual potencies - Taraka and Paraka Saktis. By her Taraka Sakti she delivers anyone who comes to her from inauspicious past karma and with her Paraka Sakti she brings us directly in contact with the divine.

Anyone who has taken a bath in Ganga has felt great relief and has wakened his spiritual consciousness. The Bhagavata Purana says that Ganga devi comes directly from Vishnu-pada, the lotus feet of the Lord.

Devotees, people, saints from all over take today a holy bath in Mother Ganga to be blessed by her.

You can also derive the same benefit by taking a bath in meditation, although you may be thousands of kilometers away from Mother Ganga. This is how to do it:

1. Find a peaceful place and center yourself
2. Invoke the image of Mother Ganga in your mind
3. Enter Mother Ganga carefully (be attentive as she can flow very swiftly)
4. Offer three palmfuls of water to Mother Ganga and pray to her - not only
for your well-being but also for the well-being of others
5. Chant this mantra “om gangayai namaha”
6. Take three dips in her waters
7. End your meditation by offering gratitude to Mother Ganga

Wishing you all the best and lots of spiritual strength
