People worship nagas to get blessings from snake god for well being of their families .Sisters especially offer milk to snakes and perform puja for welfare of their brother. An interesting story has been mentioned in our puranas ."Kashyap" was the son of lord "Brahma" (creator of universe).,

" OM NAV KULAYE VIDHMAHE VISHDANTAYE DHEE MAHI TANNO SARP PRACHODAYAT"
.Ask for well being of your family and you will get blessings from snake community.
4. ASTROLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF NAG PANCHAMI
: On this day , planets are in great position .
: sun is in cancer sign in
ashlesha nakshatra in its 2nd padha
.Ashlesha is known for its dharma motivation and especially this nakshatra represent serpents.lord anant shesh nag is related to this nakshatra. sun is our soul which is indicating us to gain knowledge to help our soul to find its way to moksha. capricorn padha is an indicator of constuctive knowledge required to have a systematic approach for inner progress.
moon is in virgo in
hasta nakshatra 1st padha
which is an indicator of need to control emotional weakness. hasta is great for mantra knowledge ,but if we focus our mind by yoga , we can get best results.
As i discussed sun (soul) and moon (mind), the other important factor to notice is Rahu/Ketu. Rahu is the serpent head , in chinese astrology, rahu is called as head of dragon.Rahu being head is responsible of eating /doing karma and ketu is designated as tail which represents emission of results of karma. Rahu is also called gateway of destiny.type of karma we do comes out through ketu as result.
5. HOLISTIC PERSPECTIVE :
Month of august is still hot and
is high. our body needs to cool down by drinking lots of water. eating "bel" fruit is considered very helpful in cooling down pitta. doing yogasna like
nadi shodhan ( breath in and out alternately from both nostrils).
helps in calming down high pitta. body temperature comes in balance and mind becomes more focused.
6. AWARENESS ABOUT SNAKES :
Snakes technically does not drink milk. offering milk to snakes should be very limited enough to honour the ritual. If snakes drink milk, it can harm their body and make them sick because milk is not their usual diet. A very cruel and sad part is that many snake charmers , take out teeth of snake and even burn their poision glands with hot metal rod. This is very cruel.This type of treatment with snakes is definitely a curse for the person. We should all raise awareness among community to set snakes free and do not harm snakes /torture snakes. This is my personal request to all community.
