According to legends, Samudra Manthan (the churning of oceans) was done by Gods and demons in the month of Sawan to attain Amrit. In this process, fourteen rubies including Halahala (poison) emerged from the ocean. All the rubies except Halahal were distributed among demons and Gods. Since Halahal was the most dreadful poison, it started destroying all life forms after its emergence. To stop this, all the demons and Gods prayed to Lord Shiva who then drank the Halahal and saved the Universe. Due to Halahal’s poisonous effect, Lord Shiva’s throat became blue and he was named “Neelkanth”. Lord Shiva adorned the crescent Moon to calm down Shiva and reduce Halahal effects. Since then, the tradition to offer Gangajal to Lord Shiva was propagated.
