According to the Hindu religion, snakes are considered equal to deities. Because their mother is same. You may hear the story of big serpents like Takshak in Mahabharata, an incarnation of Seshnag Lakshmana in the Ramayana or Basuki. We worship snakes because they are the real companion of our gods like Vishnu or Shiva. Nag Panchami has special religious significance in India. Devotees worship these great serpents by following Puja-Vrat- Vidhi with great devotion to Nag Panchami. Normally, Nag Panchami falls in the month of Sawan.
Nag Panchami is celebrated on the Shravan Shukla Panchami. According to the astrological calculation if Panchami persists less than 3 Muhurats on its Tithi and Chaturthi is also less than 3 Muhurats relatively one day back, you should do Vrat-Puja on Chaturthi. But, here is also a coincidence. If Chaturthi persists more than 3 Muhurats Panchami will start ending after the two Muhurats of the upcoming day. In this condition, Devotees should do Vrat-Puja the next day.

According to Hindu Mythology, the sage Kashyap was the husband of four wives. In ancient times, polygamy was in practice. Deities, Garuda, Demons, and Snakes were born from the different-different mothers. The sage Kashyap was their father. You must know, Kashyap was the son of Brahma who is the creator of this universe. Vasuki and Takshak relate to the equivalent of deities. They possess immense power and are considered kings of all serpents. Eight great serpents named as Karkotak, Padma, Mahapadma, Takshak, Anant, Vasuki, Kulik and Shankhpal. Our today’s caste system is based upon the classification of these great serpents. They are like Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and Shudras.
In the ancient time of Mahabharata, the grandson of Arjuna organized a Nag Yagya to kill all the snakes. The name of the grandson was Janmajeya. His father Parikshit was bitten by Takshak. Janmajeya became extremely furious and obliged to have revenge from snakes due to his father’s demise. All the snakes were in terror of their death. But, the sage Aastik reconciled the king Janmajeya. And, snakes were protected from mass extinction. From that day, Nag Panchmi has been celebrated. If you worship on Nag Panchami snakes will never bite you. You won’t be the victim of premature death due to a snake bite.
