                       ॥                               -                            ॥
     The following is a rare Ganga Stotram from Skanda Puranam, Kashi Khandam,
EkAshiti Sahasra Samhita, Chapter 27. This chapter precedes the famous Ganga
Saharanama Stotra (there are many Sahasranamas on Ganga Devi and this is the most
commonly used) and explains the Mahima of Ganga Devi. This chapter includes a detailed
procedure for performing Puja to Ganga Devi and this hymn follows that procedure.
    It is easy to comprehend the sanctity and efficacy of the stotra from the Phalashruti
whose gist is given below:
          One who chants this Stotra ten times gets absolved of all sins borne out of body,
           speech and mind (Chitta).
          A person with disease gets relief from diseases and a person with misfortunes
           gets good fortune. A person who is forcefully bonded gets relief from bondage
           and a frightened (fearful) person gets relief from fear. The person does not get
           fear from fire, theft and serpents.
          One who chants this stotra standing in Ganges River on a day which falls during
           Jyeshta month, Krishna Paksha, Dashami Tithi and Wednesday, will be wiped
           out of his poverty and gets immense benefits if he follows the procedure
           mentioned before (in this chapter).
          Ganga and Gauri are non-dual and therefore Puja to Ganga is same as Puja to
           Gauri. Similarly, Puja to Ganga is same as Puja to Vidhi (Brahma). As there is no
           difference between Vishnu and Rudra, there is no difference between Ganga
           and Gauri. The person who implies any difference between these is a fool.
