The Trimbak temple (Trimbakeshwar) is located in the Nashik district of Maharashtra. It is the best place for Vedic pujas, especially Narayan Nagbali, Kalsarpa Shanti and Tripindi. Spiritually and religiously, it is an important place for these pujas because it is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. A Jyotirlinga is a divine light indicating the supremacy of Lord Shiva.


In the Vedic scriptures or shastras such as Shiva Purana, it is stated that ‘Jyoti’ means ‘radiance’ and ‘lingam’ means a divine Shiva personified. So Jyotir Lingam is the radiant/divine light of Lord Shiva.


Other eleven Jyotirlingas in India are Somnath (Gujarat), Mallikarjuna (Srisailam, Andhra Pradesh), Mahakaleswar (Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh), Omkareshwar (Madhya Pradesh), Kedarnath in (Himalayas), Bhimashankar (Maharashtra), Viswanath (Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh), Vaidyanath (Deoghar in Jharkhand), Nageshvara Jyotirlinga (Dwarka, Gujarat), Rameshwar (Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu) and Grishneshwar (Aurangabad, Maharashtra).

Narayan Bali and Nagbali Poojas at Trimbak Temple

Narayan Nagbali is a three-day Hindu ritual held at Trimbakeshwar temple, Nashik District, Maharashtra, India. Families conduct the Narayan Nagbali ceremony to release the spirits of family members who died untimely, whose death happened at a premature or wrong time; like from an unexpected cause.


Nag Bali ritual is another ceremony which is also performed to forgive all the sins of the departed souls and propitiate their ascension to heaven, as a complementary part of the whole puja. Nag Bali ritual is also performed to fully nullify the curse caused by killing a cobra-like snake.



Narayan Bali is the most significant Vidhi done in the name of ancestors for their souls to break free from this world and attain the highest state of liberation from this cycle of human birth and death.


The Narayan Bali ceremony is performed to satisfy the unsatisfied aspirations of ancestor spirits, who are trapped in this realm. Lack of fulfilment causes troubles for their descendants because of their inability to move forward.


Garuda Purana mentions that Narayan Bali pooja aims to satisfy the unfulfilled desires and liberate one’s Pitru (ancestors) from the bondage of the material world. This bondage generally is the result of unnatural death.


How does an unnatural death happen?

It happens when a person dies of hunger (starvation). It is bitten by a poisonous animal, accidents, fire catching, dangerous diseases like cholera, etc., commits suicide, slipping off the mountain, tree or any higher places, etc. Also, if the person drowns underwater, is murdered, gets bitten by a poisonous snake or gets struck by lightning. Some cases lead to his or her unnatural death.


What happens after the person dies unnaturally?

After dying accidentally, unnaturally, and thus untimely, the person’s soul does not attain Mukti (liberation) because, at the time of death, he passed away with unfulfilled desires. These unsatisfied desires hold him back from going toward the Sun (light of liberation) and remain in the subtle form (with mind, intelligence and false ego). As a result, he remains unsatisfied, frustrated and displeased.


The impact of this dissatisfaction comes down to the generations (descendants) of his family. The family runs into struggles, more expenses than income, injuries, frequent ailments, mental stress & frustrations, disputes, etc. To pacify these afflictions, it is therefore essential to perform Narayan Bali puja, wherein the pundit uses an artificial body made entirely of wheat flour. During this puja, the selected mantras are chanted to invoke the departed soul in the same with his unfulfilled desires.


In this puja, the departed soul finally possesses the artificial wheat flour body and is offered prayers, sacred food and other prescribed items. Thus satisfied, the soul loses all attachments to the material plane and moves on toward the light, blessing his descendants (generations) of his family. This puja also relieves the soul of a dead person who had faced an abnormal death.



In most cases, the main prescription for this puja that we can notice in our life is the existence of abundant and persistent health problems in many members of the same family. Narayan Bali puja is also prescribed when there is an unstoppable wastage of money and resources beyond our control, unnecessary expenses coming our way, obstacles in career and business despite our best efforts and all kind of marriage-related problems, like delay in marriage or impossibility to find the right life partner.


In addition to the above, Narayan Bali puja is also recommended to eliminate problems befallen due to curses from father, mother, brother, wife, husband and other shaps (Pitru shap, Pratashap, Matrushap, Bhatrushap, Patnishap, Matulshap). Narayan Bali puja is performed to get respite from several problems which are beyond our ability to put an end to them, persistent and inexplicable problems of which we cannot get rid despite our greatest determinations to remove them. Ultimately, Narayan Bali puja is indicated and performed in the case a family member has passed away in an untimely manner to get relief from the observed consequences of it in our lives, and the paired Nagbali ritual to completely clear all the sins of the departed souls, thus that they can evolve to higher planes and we can get final emancipation from them.



This ritual clears away all the sins and wrongdoings a person did when he or she was alive.


It is also traditionally performed when he or she, knowingly or unknowingly, killed a snake like a cobra, because this act curses the person to face serious challenges and problems in life, which can be passed on to the next generations. This curse leads to a lot of physical pain and illnesses.


Shaunaka Rishi, a prominent ancient sage of India, had suggested Nagbali puja to eliminate such curses. In this puja, an object representing a divine snake is worshipped and offered sacred food so that he can release the sinned person from the curse.


How is Narayan Nagbali Puja conducted?

Since it is a 3-day ritual, there are prescribed vidhis done over a period of three days. Deities are invoked, worshipped and offered sacred items. One has to reach Trimbakeshwar temple in the evening for the puja that starts the next morning.


Narayan Nagbali Puja Procedure

Day 1

  • A devotee takes a holy dip in the Kushavarta Kund and puts on new clothes (dhoto for men and saree for women).
  • Then the devotee along with one coconut, five suparis and some Dakshina (instructed by the pundit) visits Kushawarth Tirtharaj to offer prayers aka the Prathna.
  • If the father is alive, the devotee does not do Mundan (going bald), else he has to be bald if the father has departed.
  • Next is the performance of the Sankalp which is performed under the supervision of your pundit at the shamshaan (crematorium) behind the Shiva temple at Trimbakeshwar.
  • After the Sankalp, five kalash (water pots) are worshipped, and then the deities such as Bal Gopal (baby Krishna), Vishnu, Bramha, Shiva, Yumraj and Tath Purush are worshipped.
  • Next is a havan wherein the oblations are given into Agni. Following the havan, eleven Pinda Shraadh Lord Vishnu and five Pinda Shraadh for Lord Bramha and one for other gods are offered.
  • Then a Pinda puja is performed to nullify the Pitru Dosh afflicted upon the family.
  • Of the above-mentioned Pinds, one is offered to the crows for them to eat.
  • Then a human doll is placed on top of the coconut is worshipped with mantras. After this ritual, it is burnt, indicative of burning all the negative elements and energies.

Day 2

  • It starts with the devotee again taking a holy dip in the Kushavarta Kund and putting on new clothes.
  • The devotee then re-visits the shamshaan to perform Sapindh Shraadh of the human doll which was worshipped and fired (burnt) the previous day.
  • Next is worshipping an idol of a snake placed on wheat flour. This snake is said to have eight doshas. This worship or puja nullifies all the doshas. Then the snake idol is declared lifeless and burnt.
  • Chants of ‘Om Namah Bhagvate Vasudeva’ are offered after all the day 2 ritual.

Day 3

  • Finally, day 3 starts with the worship of Lord Ganesh. This Ganesh puja is performed to invite auspiciousness since all the negative energies or doshas were burnt in the previous rituals performed on the previous two days.
  • Then a small golden deity of a snake is worshipped. Here ends the Narayana Nagbali puja with the chanting of ‘Om Namah Bhagvate Namah’ for the rest of the day.



The Trimbak temple has three lingams that represent the divinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh (Shiva). Also, the images of various deities such as Gangadevi, Jaleswara, Rameswara, Gautameswara, Kedarnath, Rama, Krishna, Parasurama and Lakshmi Narayana are featured inside the Temple. 


An event of Samudra Manthana described in the Bhagavat Purana (8.7.22) highlights a point that it is Shiva only who cleanses the sins of surrendered souls. The event describes the poison Halahal generated during the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthana) which started spreading in all directions.


As a result, the heavenly group of gods called the Prajapatis prayed to Shiva this way:

त्वमेकः सर्वजगत ईश्वरो बन्धमोक्षयोः ।  
तं त्वामर्चन्ति कुशलाः प्रपन्नार्तिहरं गुरुम् ॥२२॥


“O lord, you are the cause of bondage and liberation of the entire universe because you are its ruler. Those who are advanced in spiritual consciousness surrender unto you, and therefore you are the cause of mitigating their distresses, and you are also the cause of their liberation. We therefore worship Your Lordship.” (Bhagavat Purana 8.7.22)

Thus, as requested by them, Lord Shiva said to His wife Bhavani (Parvati): ‘It is my duty to give protection and safety to all living entities struggling for existence. Certainly, it is the duty of the master to protect his suffering dependents.’ Lord Shiva compassionately took the whole poison in his palm and drank it, averting the cosmic destruction due to the spread of Halahal.

This event describes that only Lord Shiva destroys the negative and liberates the people from all types of miseries. It is He only who neutralizes the effects of sins committed knowingly and unknowingly.
