Celebrations

Naga Panchami is dedicated to the worship of Nagas, or Snakes, and is an important festival in India in Shravan month. Nagas are worshipped in Hindu religion and snakes are always depicted with Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Lord Vishnu lies on Snake Ananta in the milky ocean and Lord Shiva has snakes as ornament and this close association has deep symbolic meaning. 

People also observe Naga Panchami Vrata on the day – some Hindu communities fast during the daytime and eat food only after sunset. Some people avoid salt and deep fried on the day. Some people fast on Naga Chaturthi day, which falls a day before.

Worship of Nagas is a constant reminder to humans to live in harmony with Nature. And the ideal way to worship Nagas is by protecting the forests and grooves that are home of snakes and other animals.
