Significance and legend behind the Kumbh mela in Haridwar
“According to astrologers, the 'Kumbh Fair' takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries. Kumbha (Kumbha means pot) Mela (means fair) is a sacred Hindu pilgrimage festival. It takes place at the following four locations of India: Prayag at Allahabad (Uttar Pradesh) , Haridwar (Uttarakhand) , Ujjain(Madhya Pradesh) and at Nasik (Maharashtra)
The origin and significance of this Kumbh is very ancient and dates back to the time of the churning of the primordial sea (Samudramanthan). The resultant effect of this primordial churning is said to ensue a fierce battle between Gods and demons (Asuras) when the (Kalasha) pot of nectar of immortality or called as the ‘elixir of life’ came out of the sea. The legend says to prevent the vessel of ambrosia (Amrita) being snatched away forcibly by the powerful Asuras four designate deities namely Brahaspati(Jupitar), Surya(Sun), Chandra(Moon) and Shani(Saturn) were entrusted to take it to safer place for the Gods . Asuras learning the conspiracy turned furious and chased these four gods running away with vessel. This legendary chase as the belief goes is said to have lasted for 12 days and nights during which the Devtas and Asuras went round the earth. During this chase the Devtas put the prized vessel containing ambrosia at Haridwar, Prayag, Ujjain and Nasik
Legend as it puts according to Indian Holy Scriptures and Puranas that during the process of the fight that ensued between Devtas and Asuras over the rightful possession of the ‘Amruta’, it spilled out of the vessel at these four places which turned them holy place on earth during the chase. To commemorate this holy event of chasing and shifting their places of hide with the vessel of the Amrut thus significance of Kumbh is celebrated at the above 4 places periodically.
In India the festival is religiously very important for the Hindus. At every Kumbh occasion, millions of Hindus take part in the celebrations. During 2004 Kumbh at Haridwar, more than 10 millions devotees was said to have participated at the site. Saints, seers priests, and yogis from all corners of India, gathered to participate in Kumbh. Haridwar is considered very holy, due to the fact that River Ganga enters plains cascading from mountains through this route.
Visit during this festival is frequented by the most amazing saints from all across India. The Naga Sadhus are one such, who never sport any cloth and love their body to be smeared in ash like Shri Shiva. They have long matted hairs and are not at all affected by the adverse climatic conditions. It is popularly believed since ancient times that bathing during this Kumbh season in the waters of Ganges helps cure the seeker of all sins and evils while grants one with salvation and boons . Scientifically it is also believed that during the phase of this Kumbh the water of Ganga is charged with positive healing effects and that water at the time of Kumbh is charged positively by enhanced electromagnetic radiations of the Sun, Moon and the Jupiter, the flux of which also varies in accordance to positions and the phases of the moon, and also by the + and - signs of the sun spots.
