Nag Panchami (28/7/2017)
Nag Panchami is a festival that is dedicated to the worship of Nagas (snakes) who are elemental beings in mythology. They were feared and worshipped. Lord Shiva is depicted in iconography ornamented by snakes and Rudraksha. He was addressed Bhunjangabhushana (he who adorns himself with a serpent). Here the serpent around his neck symbolizes a supreme deity who is in control of his energy while sitting calm and fearless. Snakes have since then gained significance as totems of divine energy. Ancient texts further state that people who wear Rudraksha on Nag Panchami and worship snakes gain blessings from Lord Shiva. In India people worship snakes on this day to get protection from snake bites, to nullify effects of Kaal Sarpa Dosh, rectify energy imbalances in the body and to nullify Visha Yoga.
Nag Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of the bright fortnight of the lunar day in the auspicious month of Shravan. People bathe, offer turmeric, vermilion, milk, sweets, flowers and fruits to snake idols at temples or simply leave them near the abode of a live snake to seek blessings. It is believed that Nagas support Prithvi (earth) while residing in Paatal (nether world). Puranas addressed Nagas as the descendants of Maharshi Kashyapa and Kadroo. The Navanaga Stotra is usually recited on Nag Panchami after wearing Rudraksha to seek blessings from Nagas; the favored reptiles blessed by Lord Shiva. The Ananta, Vasuki, Sesha, Padmanabh, Kambalam, Shankhpala, Dhartarastram, Takshaka, Kaliya are the nine Nagas worshipped on this day.
Lord Vishnu rests on Ananta Naga with his consort Goddess Maha Lakshmi. As per ancient texts the 7 mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Goddess Maha Lakshmi and Ananta. Mahalakshmi is known to bless one with wealth, peace, luxuries, moderation, contentment and events that help people enjoy innate experiences of the soul even when they live in the lap of luxury. The 7 mukhi can be worn as an amulet to keep away toxins and poisons, secure blessings of progress and prosperity and to control the malefic effects of Saturn. Rudraksha are natural seeds of the Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb tree. As per the Shastras they are tears of lord Shiva, blessed by him as ever auspicious to those who wear or gift them.
