Nag Panchami Significance

The rituals and customs of Naga Panchami puja in Gujarat are similar to other states. Devotees, on this day, observe fast and worship snakes by visiting anthills and trees where snakes can be found. The most important feature of the Naga Panchami festival is that women offer milk to snakes to seek blessings and protection from evil.

Nag Pancham day is dedicated to Serpent God and people worship snakes as representative of Serpent Gods like Vasuki, Adishesha and Ananta. It is believed that anything offered to snakes on Nag Pancham day would reach the serpent gods. Hence, devotes worship live snakes on the day as representative of serpent gods. It is said that people can get rid of Kal Sarp dosh by praying snakes and it also brings good luck. Devotees observe fast on Nag Pancham and usually break it after Nag Puja.

तस्य विषभयं नास्ति सर्वत्र विजयी भवेत्॥
