Nag Panchami

Nag Panchami- Nag Panchami is observed on the 5th day of the bright half of Shravan (July-August). On this day nag, cobras and snakes are worshipped with milk, sweets, flowers, lamps and even sacrifices. The images of Nag deities made of silver, stone, wood (or painted on the wall) are first bathed with water and milk, and then worshipped with the reciting of the following mantras: Nagah preeta bhavantih shanthnapnoti vai vibhoh, Sashunti lok ma sadhya modate shashttih samah.

Snakes and cobras are held in awe and reverence in India. They are worshipped and offered prayers on the Nag Panchami day. Fast is observed and Brahmins are fed on this day. The piety observed on this day is considered a sure protection against the fear of snake-bite. At many places real cobras and snakes are worshipped and fairs held. On this day digging the earth is prohibited, because the serpents live under the earth or in the nether world and digging may hurt or annoy them. The various Purans like Agni Puran, Skanda Puran, Narad Puran, etc., give details of snake-worship and its significance.
