The Law of Karma remains as the fundamental principle of Hinduism. Karma literally means action and the law of karma is nothing but the fundamental principle that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The result of every thought, word or action, good or bad, gets carried forward across several births that the individual soul takes, for it to face very similar consequences. Sins are the results of the vices and the evil committed by an individual in any birth, which that soul will face in in later births, whatever be the form it was born in. Sins cause distress and great sins can cause immense sufferings.

This sloka is in praise of mother Ganga or river Ganges. Ganga is regarded as the holiest of rivers and is worshipped by the devout as the mother Goddess. There are many sacred places of pilgrimage like Varanasi and Allahabad, that are located on her banks. It is a firm belief that a mere dip in the Ganges waters can wash away the sins of many previous births and lead one towards Moksha, the ultimate liberation.

It is believed that the chanting of this hymn with faith can relieve one of all forms of afflictions and sins.

Chathur bhujaam Trinayanaam

Suththaspadiga Sannibom

Thyayeham makaraaroodam

Subra vasthraam suusismithaam

Namo bhagavathyai dasapaapaharaayai

Gangaayai naaraayanyai revaathyai

Sivaayai dhakshaayai amrutaayai

Visvaroopinyai nandhinyai namo namaha

The river Ganges is considered sacred and personified as Goddess Ganga. The worship of Maa Ganga is one of the most important rituals. Devi Ganga can purify the souls of devotees.


I bow to Matha Ganga, who has four hands, three eyes, who has a crystal clear mind, who is mounted on Makara (a kind of fish), who wears shining garments, who destroys ten kind of sins, who is Ganga, who is worshipped by Narayana, who is Revathy, who is dear to Shiva, Daksha and Amrita, who is in the form of the universe and who is pretty.


Chant this sloka daily before having a bath.

By the grace of Maa Ganga, one can get rid of all diseases and ailments. It washes away ten kinds of sins and gives peace to the souls and helps to attain Moksha or liberation of the soul.
