Ganga Dussehra Mythology
According to mythology, in ancient times once there was a king of Ayodhya Nagari, his name was Bhagirath who was also known as the ancestor of the most dignified man, Lord Rama. For the peace of his ancestors, Bhagirath had to offer Gangajal, but during that time Ganga was limited to heaven only. His father and forefathers did severe penance to bring Ganga on earth, sadly they failed. Then the king Bhagirath himself went to Himalaya and did severe penance.
His severe penance pleased Maa Ganga and made her ready to flow on the earth. But the problem was that the velocity of Ganga was so high that it could destroy the earth. The power to control Maa Ganga was only in the hands of Mahadev.
When Bhagirath got to know about it, he started Tapasya of Lord Shiva. During his penance, he stood on the toe of his foot for about 1 year without eating or drinking anything. This practice of him made Lord Shiva happy and accepted his request of bringing Ganga on Earth.
After that Brahma Ji released the stream of Ganga from his Kamandal and Lord Shiva covered up its steam in his hair. For around 32 days, Ganga was moving in his hair. On the Dashmi Tithi in Shukla Paksha of Jyeshtha month, Mahadev descended Ganga on the earth from his one hair. Bhagirath made a path for Ganga in the middle of the Himalayan valley. After that he offered Gangajal to his ancestors and provided them peace.
