Hi Everyone ;o) It's week 7 of the 13 Goddesses Challenge ;o) Only 6 more weeks to go ;o) This week I did Hindu Goddess Ganga ;o)
Ganga is the Hindu Goddess of the Holy Ganges River, who purifies with her touch. Ganga's waters descend from the heavens, flow across the earth and eventually find their way to the bottom of the ocean.
When she first fell from the Heaven, the Gods feared that her torrent would be too powerful and would flood the earth. The God Shiva volunteered to help. He placed himself below her cascading waters as a buffer and Ganga fell upon his hair. Eventually, Ganga was divided into seven streams to lessen the impact on earth.
In the south of India she is shown as a mermaid.
Next week, Roman Goddess Vesta ;o) One hot Goddess ;o) LOL!
Hugs Everyone ;o)
