Dawn of Ganges
In order to emancipate the souls of his forefathers Bhagirath performed an excruciatingly harsh penance to bring the River Ganges to Earth from the heavens. This miniature painting captures Bhagiratha worshiping Lord Shiva to release the Ganga from his locks. Sitting at Kailash with Godess Parvati Lord Shiva gently releases the Ganga to cascade down to Earth. While descending, Ganga purified all beings and becomes the panacea for Earth’s plight.
