MANI KARAN

By taking bath here and by drinking water of the place, people go to the Heaven, this is said of the Mani Karan tract since the times immemorial. It is just like Kashi Kshetra. There is no doubt about it. Out of all sectors (Piths) of the country, this sector which is called 'Kulant Pith, is the superior most. Here, the most sacred place of pilgrimage is Mani Karan, and in it the 'Vishnu Kund' is the purest of all. Lord Sankara is mightily pleased to stay here.

This is absolutely true. No other tank in the world, could be more pure than these high rising tanks. Even a drop of water from the tanks will make one free of all evils. Narad, on account of the influence of the Sankara's eye, this sacred place, causes the disappearance of anger and evils. One who eats the food cooked in this boiling water goes to the Vishnu Lok (Heaven).*1
