The festival of Nag Panchami 2020 is celebrated across the nation today. This unique festival of worshipping snakes is celebrated on the Panchami Tithi (fifth day) of the Shukla Paksha (as the moon waxes) in the month of Sawan or Shravan.
On Nag Panchami 2020, devotees worship serpent gods and ask for their forgiveness. Worshipping snakes in Hindu culture holds greater importance as even Lord Shiva carries snakes around his neck like a garland. Nag Panchami 2020 is also known as Nag Chaturthi and Nagul Chavithi.
On Nag Panchami, women across the nation worship serpent gods and offer them milk and pray for their brother’s and family’s health and well being. According to Hindu beliefs, anything offered to snakes on this day would reach directly to the serpent gods.
