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.

When your spiritual will is awake, you have consideration for other people's feelings. When your spiritual will is awake, you give in on little things, and you have the power to hold firm on big issues.
