(History of Ganga River) Who brought the Ganga to the earth and why?
WhenKingBhagirath, son of King Dilip, grew up, Dilip also went to perform the penance to bring the Ganga to the Earth, but he also did not get any desired result.
King Bhagiratha was a great king, but they did not have any children. by handing over the burden of their kingdom to the Mantris, To bring them to the earth, they went on a pilgrimage calledGokarnato perform rigorous austerities. Pleased with their austerities,Brahma jiasked them to ask for help. Brahma said to Lord Brahma, “Oh Lord!” If you are pleased with me, then give me this blessing that the sons of Sagar should get the water of Ganga so that they can be saved, besides this I also should increase the blessing of the child so that Ikshvanku dynasty do not get destroyed.
Brahma ji said that your aspiration of the child will soon come true, but the difficulty in giving your first gift to you is that when the Ganga will come to earth with the velocity, the earth will not be able to handle its velocity. The ability to handle is not in anyone other thanMahadev ji.That is why you have to please Mahadev ji. By saying so, Brahma ji went away from his place.
Ganga river origin:
“Bhagirath did not give up courage, he stood by the thumb of the feet for one year and practiced penance of Mahadev ji. In the end, pleased with this great devotion, Mahadev ji appeared to Bhagiratha and said” O Bhakta-sreshtha! ” To fulfill his wish, he will hold Ganga on his head. Ganga ji came on the head with a tremendous speed, Shiva ji took the guts in his jhatazut. Lord Shankar left Ganga inBindusaron the Himalayas.
After which Ganga was divided into seven streams, three streams of Ganga jammed flowed towards east ofHaldini, Pavani and Nalini,three streams namedSukshshu, Sita and Sindhu.
She followed behind Bhagiratha. Ganga ji reached the place where the sage were sacrificing the yagna, and the Ganga began to take away all the material from their yagya. In which it caused the anger of the sage to become very angry, All drinked water. Seeing this, all the sage Munis were greatly amazed and they started praying for the liberation of Ganga. Pleased with their prayers,Jahnu Rishiremoved Ganga ji from his ears and accepted him as his daughter. Since then Ganga has been calledJahnvi.
After this he went behind the Bhagirath to reach the sea and from there he went to the abyss to save the sons of Sagar. The son of Sagar, who was fragile with the touch of his water, went to heaven after being innocent.
From that day three names of the Ganga are called,Tripathaga, Jahnavi and Bhagirathi.
