FILE INFO
CaptionWhen Ganga was satisfied with the austerities of King Bhagiratha, she appeared before him and asked him what he desired. The King wanted mother Ganga to come down to the earth, to deliver his forefathers. Mother Ganga replied that if she fell down from the sky to the earth, her waters would be so forceful that if no one sustained them, they would pierce right through the earth to the planetary system below it. Bhagiratha said that Lord Shiva, being an incarnation of the Lord, could sustain the forceful waves on his head. Bhagiratha then performed austerities to Lord Shiva, who was quickly satisfied with him and agreed to sustain the Ganga on his head.

Painted in 1997.
