Importance of Ganga Dussehra

Ganga Dussehra is celebrated in the month of June, called as Jyeshtha as per the Hindu calendar. Rishi Bhagirath took many years meditating to convince Ganga to come on earth. This 10-day celebration takes place to commemorate Ganga’s descent to earth, known as Gangavataran. The sacred river to Hindus ‘Ganga’ holds a special place for the Indian. Ganga is considered as the most holy and sacred rivers in India. This river is worshipped, with a belief that Goddess Ganga can wash away all sins of mankind.

The first 10 days of June are very well justified to honour the presence of Ganga River in India. The name Dussehra comes from ‘Dus’ which means ten and ‘Hara’ which connotes defeat. Thus, it is believed that praying on this day can help you attain salvation from 10 sins.
