GANGOTRI & YAMUNOTRI 
 
The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  

A dip releases everyone from the cycle of births and deaths. Asthinimajjana emancipates the dead, for they are the waters of Brahma, consecrated by the contact of Sri Maha Vishnu, and later released from the matted locks of Lord Maheswar.

When Sagara's sons, sixth, thousand in number, were burnt with the atmic power of Kapila, Bhaghiratha wanted to emancipate them. Realizing the efficacy of Ganga water, he did penance lasting for thousands of years, and when Sri Maha Vishnu appeared, he prayed for sending Ganga to marthyaloka. It was granted. But for curtailing the force of descent and violence of flow, he prayed to Maheswar, who on listening to his plight accepted to hold the turbulent Ganga in his matted Jatas, and then allow it flowing in normal way. And he did.
