Namaste,

I would like to perform puja to Ganga Maiya. Does anyone know the correct way of doing it, and what mantras should be chanted?

I am grateful for your help.

I am also curious about this.
Why Ganga Devi receives so little worship when even a single drop of Her earthly form grants Moksha?

I see there is no response for you inquiry, it is not because there are no devotees of maa Ganga, I think because she is a pratyaksa Devi therefore most Hindu would like to go to pilgrimage to the holy tirth and have a dip in her waters once in a life time, what could be more tribute to her then this?

In the absence of opportunity to go there people somehow manage to get her waters in a small sealed pot which could be kept in shrine and use the water for puja.

Most people invoke the holy rivers while having a bath.

Here are some stutis that may help

Oh Goddess Ganga ! You are the divine river from heaven
You are the saviour of all the three worlds
You are pure and restless
You adorn Lord Shiva's head
Oh Mother ! May my mind always rest at Thy lotus feet

Bhaagiirathi Sukha Daayini Maatah

Naaham Jaane Tava Mahimaanam
Paahi Kripaamayi Maamajnam

Oh Mother Bhagirathi ! You grant happiness to everyone
The significance of your holy waters is glorified in the sacred Vedas
I'm ignorant and fail to comprehend your importance
Oh Devi ! You are full of mercy, please protect me

Hari pada paadya tarangini gange
Hima vidhu muktaa dhavala tarange
Durikuru mama dushkriti bhaaram
Kuru kripaya bhavasaagara paaram

Oh Devi ! your waters are sacred as the "charnaamrit" of Sri Hari
Your waves are white like the snow, moon, and pearls
Please wash away my sins and help me cross the ocean of mundane existance

Tava jalam amalam yena nipitam
Parama padam khalu tena grhitam
Maatar gange twayi yo bhaktah kila
Tam drashtum na yamah shaktah

Oh Mother ! those who partake of your pure waters, definitely attains the highest state
Oh Goddess Ganga ! Yama the Lord of Death cannot harm your devotees

Patitodhaarini jahnavi gange
Khandita giri vara mandita bhange
Bhîshma janani khalu muni vara kanye
Patita nivârini tri bhuvana dhanye

Oh Jahnavi ! Your waters flowing through the Himalayas make you even more beautiful.You are Bhisma's mother and sage Jahnu's daughter, You are the Saviour of people fallen from their paths and so you are revered in all three worlds.

Jai Shree Krishna
Jai Maa Ganga
