Ganga - Maa Ganga - Holy Ganga
Goddess Ganga represents the sacred river in Hindu mythology
and is said to be the only living Goddess. Adorned in
a chaste white sari and crown, she is found sitting on
a crocodile, holding a water lily in her right hand and
a lute in the other. Ganga is a Hindu goddess believed
to have the power of absolving one's sins. Goddess Ganga
is known as Mandakini in heaven, Bhagirathi on earth and
Alakananda in the underworld. Although mentioned in the
Rig Veda twice, she attained immense importance in the
later Puranic period. According to the puranas, the very
touch of Ganga purifies one of all his sins
and if a person takes a holy dip in it, he is bestowed
with blessings of highest order.
