svar yatah sagaratmajah
kim punah sraddhaya devim
sevante ye dhrta-vratah
bhasmibhuta-anga—by the body which had been burnt to ashes; sangena—by contacting the water of the Ganges; svah yatah—went to the heavenly planets; sagara-atmajah—the sons of Sagara; kim—what to speak of; punah—again; sraddhaya—with faith and devotion; devim—unto mother Ganges; sevante—worship; ye—those persons who; dhrta-vratah—with vows of determination.
Simply by having water from the Ganges come in contact with the ashes of their burnt bodies, the sons of Sagara Maharaja were elevated to the heavenly planets. Therefore, what is to be said of a devotee who worships mother Ganges faithfully with a determined vow? One can only imagine the benefit that accrues to such a devotee.
