Naag Devta

After the death of King Parkishit, his son Janmejaya felt to took revenge against snakes because snake Takshak had bitten his father. He arranges a Yagya. Each Day the fire of Yagya consume one snake. As a result many snakes died .This hurt a lot to the king of snakes, Vasuki. He went to his sister Jaratkaru for the help. As per Brahama only her son, Aasteek had a power to stop this Yagya. Aasteek was too a great scholar and was too young. But he agreed for the help. After assuring Vasuki, Aasteek left for the venue of the Yagya. On listening to the sweet voice of Aasteek, Janmejaya gave him permission to attend the Yagya and called him inside the premises. Janmejaya was highly impressed by the knowledge of Aasteek. He thought that he should grant the boy a wish. At the same time Janmejaya then requested to all those who were present there to ensure that his Yagya was successful and that soon Takshak (the snake who had bitten his father, Parikshit), would fall into the fires of the Yagya and die. Since it was the turn of Takshak to die so he hide himself in Indralok. Hearing this Janmejaya requested the sages and priests to chant such a mantra that even Indra would be powerless before it and would fall into the fire with Takshak. On listening this, the priests did as they were told and soon Takshak along with Indra was pulled towards the fire. Now that Janmejaya was assured that his enemy would die, he turned to Aasteek and requested him to ask for anything that he wished for. Aasteek, seeing that Takshak would soon fall into the fire, took advantage of the situation and asked Janmejaya to stop the Snake Yagya so that the snakes who were left could survive. This shocked Janmejaya but he could not refuse what he had promised. Janmejaya had to relent and stooped the Yagya .Takshak was relieved Aasteek then left to go to Vasuki, his Uncle and Jaratkaru, his mother and narrated the whole incident to them. They blessed Aasteek and asked him to ask them for a boon. Aasteek wished that anyone who chanted the three mantras given by him at least once a day, should be spared death by a snake bite. He then chanted the three Mantras called Asit, Aartiman and Suneeth. The snakes granted Aasteek his wish and it is believed that if one chants one of these mantras even once a day, he will have nothing to fear from the snakes.

Importance of Naag Worship

    'All living organisms in the world are attuned to the functions of the world. By worshipping cobras on the day of Nagpanchami, God is performing actions through them. This is the broad view to be understood.' – H.H. Parashram Madhav PandeMaharaj, Sanatan Ashram, Devad, Panvel.

    After the bath and daily routine in the morning, the house should be purified by sprinkling Gangajal or the water from some sacred river.

    Establish an idol or picture of lord Shiva and Nag Deva in Eshan Kona. Sit quietly on the ground and take Sankalp of the fast. After the Sankalp, Nag Dev should be worshipped by offering milk– Durva, Kusha, scent, flowers, grains of rice and sweets.

    On both side of the entrance door of the house, five sketches of Nag Devta should be made with Cow Dung or red powder. In case, if cow dung is not possible, Geru (red clay powder) could be used.

    Serve Nag Dev in the temple. By doing this pooja the auspiciousness enhances in one's life. Reciting Nag strotra or Nag mantra.

    This is the main Nag Devata Mantra to worship the primary 9 Nagas of Hinduism. The names of the 9 Naag Devatas are Ananta,Vasuki, Shesha, Padmanabh, Kambal, Shankhapal, Dhrutrashtra, Takshaka and Kalia. Also known as Nav Naga Stotram, this powerful mantra of the nine nagas can be chanted on Nag Panchami, Naga Chaturthi and Shasti days.

  • Phala Sruthi :

    Etani nava navaami naganancha mahatmana Sayam patenityam prathakaale visheshita Tasya vishabhayam naasti sarvatra vijayaa bhaveth'

    The following mantra should be recited for 11, 21 or 108 times. If possible three malas of this mantra should be recited –

    “Om Kurukulye Hum Phat Swaha”

    'ऊँ कुरुकुल्ये हुँ फट स्वाहा'

    The above mantra is considered as the best method to remove Kal Sarpa dosha from the kundali. By reciting this mantra on regular basis the affected person gets released of all the negative influences cast by this dosha. Scent or perfume should be used in the worshipping of Nag Dev on this day. Food cooked in oil should not be consumed during the fast. According to one belief those who are not bearing fast should take food cooked at the prior day. Food items other than fast items should not be cooked on this day.

    The fasting gets completed after the sun set by offering Prasadam (Kheer) to Nag Dev. The worshipper then could open fast by consuming Kheer and the sweet food.

    During worship we should not chop, cut, fry, even keep a frying pan on the fire etc. These norms should be followed. Also digging on this day is forbidden.

    We should not give milk to the snakes because it may be fatal for Nag Devta. But we can pour the milk on Shivlingam on this day.

    It is my request to Save Snakes: Though Indian worship snakes during the traditional Nag Panchami festival but because of public prejudice such as hate, fear and wrong assumptions so they involvein killing of snakes as well. Snake charmers are used to display them as street show of animals for living hood. Thanks to some NGO and snake conservation and protection law and Indian snake lovers, many of snakesare getting rescue before they got killed. PETA urged snake charmers to use fake snakes instead of real ones to discourage atrocities against them during prayer ceremonies.

Naag Panchami Puja

  • Description :


    Health, wealth, success and removal of dosha.

    The date for Nag Panchami in 2016 is August 7 (Sunday). Nags or Snakes have a very special significance in Hindu Vedas and mythology and they are considered divine. There are many legends associated with Nag Panchami, the first being that the festival is celebrated to honor serpents (snakes and Nags), who are directly related to Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Lord Vishnu Himself sleeps on Shisha and Shisha is His resting place, Lord Shiva always keeps Vasuki snake on his neck. The Vasuki snake had played a very important role during Samundra Manthan when he was used as rope by Devatas and Danavas to churn the ocean. The snakes (Naga) are the rulers of Pataalloka (underworld) and sons of Kashyapa, Brahma’s son. The other legend is that on this day Lord Krishna as a young boy subdued Kaliya, the 1000 hooded serpent.

    The names of the 9 Naag Devatas are – Anant, Vasuki, Shesh, Padmanabh, Kambal, Shankhapal, Dhrutrashtra, Takshak and Kalia– if prayed daily in the morning will keep one protected from all evils and helps to become victorious in life.

    On Nag Panchami by fasting and worshipping Nag Devta one's desires and ambitions are fulfilled. Nags are also worshipped to seek protection from snake bites and all other evils. Snakes are loved and blessed by Lord Shiva and worshiping them on Nag Panchami also reduces malefic effects of Kaal Sarp Dosha. During this time digging of earth is avoided thus ploughing of field, digging from foundation is considered inauspicious.

    Nag Panchami Puja will be conducted on the auspicious day of Nag Panchami with chanting of Nag Mantra to invoke the blessings of Nag Devta for health, wealth, success and prosperity, peace and protection. The worship of Snakes on this auspicious day bestows the devotee with charisma and courage to face all challenges in the life and lead a successful life, removes Kaal Sarp Dosha from the devotees life, removes Vastu Doshas, grants protection from black magic, negativity or Nazar Dosha and gives good health and disease free life.
