Nag Panchami 2022: History, Significance and Greetings for your loved ones

Nag Panchami 2022: Nag The festival of Panchami is celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists all over the country and it falls on the Shukla Paksha Panchami during the month of Shravan. It is being celebrated in India today (August 2). Nag Panchami usually falls two days after Hariyali Teej and is a day of traditional worship of ‘Nag’ or snakes.

Nag Panchami 2022: History, Significance

According to the legends, when Lord Krishna was a child, one day he was playing on the banks of river Yamuna. The ball he was playing with got stuck in the branches of a tree on the bank of the river. Krishna slipped into the river and was attacked by the Kaliya snake. But soon Kalia realized that Krishna was no ordinary child and begged him not to kill him. Nag Panchami is celebrated to commemorate Krishna’s victory over Kaliya, who agreed not to harass humans in exchange for his life before Krishna.

A fast is kept on this day. The sanctification performed on this day is considered to be a sure protection against the fear of snakebite. In many places real snakes are worshiped and fairs are held. It is forbidden to dig the soil on this day as it is believed that it can kill or harm the snakes living in the earth.
