The Story behind the origin of Ganga
On occasion of marriage of Lord Shiva and Parvati, Shri Bramhadev worked as a priest. On occasion of Saptapadi, Bramhadev touched the feet of Mata Parvati and all of a sudden the lust took birth in his mind and at the very moment he discharged semen. Before he could wipeout hi semen, with 60,000 molecules, 60,000 sages took birth. Feeling ashamed of self, Bramhadev tried to escape from the marriage place. But Lord Shiva knew the reason behind his escape. He prevented Bramhadev and prepared the holy water with all the material of the earth. Then made it more purified with the power of Mantras. And handed it to Bramhaji saying, O Bramhaji! now you will be freed from all of your sins and will get the liberation from the lust. Because this holy water destroys all kinds of sins.
