Story of King Bhagiratha and Ganga

King Bhagiratha does tapas to petition Lord Siva to allow Ganga to come to earth, but the earth cannot bear the torrential flow of water from heaven. Lord Siva catches Ganga in His hair, and from there she flows to earth.

So great is the Sanatana Dharma that it defies all who doubt it, all who disdain it, all who disregard it, all who degrade it, with personal realization of its Truth.
