desires and the Kamanas of the pilgrims and devotees who worship the Amareswaraswamy on
the banks of the river Krishna will be fulfilled, because at the request of the Devatas,
Lord Siva manifested himself as Amareswara here and was residing here for the specific
purpose of fulfilling the Kamanas of his devotees.
Lord Indra and Kapilamahamuni also
wor- shipped Amareswara here, and as such this is the most sacred of all the Kshetras.
There is no Punarjanma if any devotee worships the
Lord here. Many they, holy waters join the Punya Tirtha of this river and all the sins of
those devotees who worship Lord Amareswara and have a bath in the holy river will be
washed off completely.
In this Punyakshetra, Lord Siva is in the form of five,
lingas, viz., Pranaveswara, Agasteswara, Kosaleswara, Someswara and Parthiveswara.
If a devotee remains at this Kshetra for more than three
days and worships Lord Amareswara with faith and devotion in his heart, after a bath in
the holy river Krishna, he will straightway attain the Sivaloka.
If any devotee dies here, he will be absorbed in Lord Siva.
