Why Ganga is known as Trilokapathagamini?

Trilokapathagamini is one among the numerous names of Ganga. Trilokapathagamini means flowing in three worlds. Ganga crossed over from heaven to earth and then to the underworld or patala. Thus, she flowed in the three worlds.

Ganga flowed in the heavens and King Sagara and his seven generations performed intense austerities and tapas to bring Ganga down to earth. King Bhagirath, great grandson of King Sagara, succeeded in attaining the boon to bring Ganga down to earth.

As the torrential flow of Ganga could destroy the earth, Shiva caught the river on his matted locks before releasing her to flow on earth 

Ganga then followed King Bhagirath from mountains to plains to the sea. From there, Ganga River reached the nether regions or Patala where she became the liberating waters for the sons of Sagara.

Ganga River System in India

The Ganga river system consists of the master river Ganga and a large number of its tributaries. This system drains a very large area comprising the middle part of the Himalayas in the north, the northern part of the Indian Plateau in the south and the Ganga Plain in-between. The total area of the Ganga basin in India is 861,404 sq km which accounts for 26.3 per cent of the geographical area of the country.

This basin is shared by ten states. These states are Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh (34.2%), Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh (23.1%), Bihar and Jharkhand (16.7%), Rajasthan (13.0%), West Bengal (8.3%), Haryana (4.0%) and Himachal Pradesh (0.5%). The Union Territory of Delhi accounts for 0.2% of the total area of the Ganga Basin.

The Ganga originates as Bhagirathi from the Gangotri glacier in Uttar Kashi District of Uttaranchal at an elevation of 7,010 m. Alaknanda joins it at Devaprayag. But before Devaprayag it reached, the Pindar, the Mandakini, the Dhauliganga and the Bishenganga rivers pour into the Alaknanda and the Bheling flows into the Bhagirathi.

कार्तिक मास में क्या करें-क्या न करें

पुराण आदि धर्म शास्त्रों में व्रत व तप की दृष्टि से कार्तिक मास (इस बार 28 अक्टूबर, बुधवार से 25 नवंबर, बुधवार तक) का विशेष महत्व बताया गया है। भगवान नारायण ने ब्रह्मा को, ब्रह्मा ने नारद को और नारद ने महाराज पृथु को कार्तिक मास के सर्वगुण संपन्न माहात्मय के संदर्भ में बताया है।
कार्तिक मास में 7 नियम प्रधान माने गए हैं, जिन्हें करने से शुभ फल मिलते हैं और हर मनोकामना पूरी होती है। ये 7 नियम इस प्रकार हैं-
1. दीपदान
धर्म शास्त्रों के अनुसार, कार्तिक मास में सबसे प्रमुख काम दीपदान करना बताया गया है। इस महीने में नदी, पोखर, तालाब आदि में दीपदान किया जाता है। इससे पुण्य की प्राप्ति होती है।
2. तुलसी पूजा
इस महीने में तुलसी पूजन करने तथा सेवन करने का विशेष महत्व बताया गया है। वैसे तो हर मास में तुलसी का सेवन व आराधना करना श्रेयस्कर होता है, लेकिन कार्तिक में तुलसी पूजा का महत्व कई गुना माना गया है।
3. भूमि पर शयन
भूमि पर सोना कार्तिक मास का तीसरा प्रमुख काम माना गया है। भूमि पर सोने से मन में सात्विकता का भाव आता है तथा अन्य विकार भी समाप्त हो जाते हैं।

4. सिर्फ एक दिन लगाएं तेल
कार्तिक महीने में केवल एक बार नरक चतुर्दशी (कार्तिक कृष्ण चतुर्दशी) के दिन ही शरीर पर तेल लगाना चाहिए। कार्तिक मास में अन्य दिनों में तेल लगाना वर्जित है।

5. द्विदलन निषेध
कार्तिक महीने में द्विदलन अर्थात उड़द, मूंग, मसूर, चना, मटर, राई आदि नहीं खाना चाहिए।
6. ब्रह्मचर्य
कार्तिक मास में ब्रह्मचर्य का पालन अति आवश्यक बताया गया है। इसका पालन नहीं करने पर पति-पत्नी को दोष लगता है और इसके अशुभ फल भी प्राप्त होते हैं.
7. संयम रखें
व्रती (व्रत करने वाला) को चाहिए कि वह तपस्वियों के समान व्यवहार करे। अर्थात कम बोले, किसी की निंदा या विवाद न करे, मन पर संयम रखें आदि।

ये है कार्तिक मास का महत्व

हिंदू धर्म में व्रत और तप का विशेष महत्व बताया गया है। व्रत और तप करने से सभी पापों का नाश तो होता ही है साथ ही ईश्वर की अनुकंपा भी प्राप्त होती है। धर्म शास्त्रों के अनुसार, जो मनुष्य कार्तिक मास में व्रत व तप करता है, उसे मोक्ष की प्राप्ति होती है।
मासानां कार्तिक: श्रेष्ठो देवानां मधुसूदन।
तीर्थं नारायणाख्यं हि त्रितयं दुर्लभं कलौ।।
(स्कंद पुराण, वै. खं. कां. मा. 1/14)
स्कंद पुराण में लिखे इस श्लोक के अनुसार, भगवान विष्णु एवं विष्णुतीर्थ के समान ही कार्तिक मास भी श्रेष्ठ और दुर्लभ है।
एक अन्य श्लोक के अनुसार-
न कार्तिकसमो मासो न कृतेन समं युगम्।
न वेदसदृशं शास्त्रं न तीर्थं गंगा समम्।।
अर्थात- कार्तिक के समान दूसरा कोई मास नहीं, सत्ययुग के समान कोई युग नही, वेद के समान कोई शास्त्र नहीं और गंगाजी के समान कोई तीर्थ नहीं है।
कार्तिक माह मे पवित्र एवं पावन गंगाजल घर बेठे प्राप्त ही करने के लिये सम्पर्क् करें।

Legends about Gangotri

Ganga, a beautiful vivacious young woman, it is said, was born out of Lord Brahma’s kamandalu (water vessel). There are two versions about this particular birth. One proclaims that Brahma washed Lord Vishnu’s feet after the latter got the universe rid of the demon Bali in his reincarnation as Vaman, and collected this water in his kamandalu.

Another legend has it that the Ganga came down to the earth in a human form and married King Shantanu — an ancestor of the Pandavs of the Mahabharat, yielded seven children, all of whom were thrown back into the river by her in an unexplained manner. The eighth – Bheeshma — was spared, thanks to King Shantanu’s intervention. However, Ganga then left him. Bheeshma plays a pivotal role throughout the grand epic of the Mahabharat.
