Haridwar, April 19
Its not only in India that the Ganga is revered as mother, but also in Nepal it holds immense religious significance for people.
This was aptly reflected when more than 150 devotees from Lumbi Aanchal in Nepal offered 1.51 crore lighted puja threads (joths) to the Ganga adjacent to the Braham Kund at Har-Ki-Pauri yesterday.
The lighted joths offered a magnificent spectacle as amid chanting of hymns the smooth flowing Ganga seemed illuminated. Notably, the Nepal Hindus perform rituals on the banks of the rivers like Narayani and Gandki in their country.
Pandit Pawan Nandan Gewalia and Dr Padam Prasad Suvida, both from Nepal, told The Tribune that these joths had been made by women in the past one year keeping in mind the religious rituals.
They said offering joths and prayers at Ganga Ghat brought to women devotees blessings of mother Ganga. They added of the 14 divisions of Nepal 10 were named after rivers.
The devotees left for Nepal today after performing rituals at the Shree Avdhoot Mandal Ashram here and the conclusion of Bhagavad Katha.
