RAMESWARAM

And then to complete the washing away of sins, he paid a visit to Sweta Madhava, gave many gifts and stayed there for a month The celestial spectators in their aero-cars were much pleased. For complete purification, Rama bathed -in Kodi-Teertham again.

At Dhanushkodi (the point where the bay
and the ocean meet) the pilgrims areasked
to bathe first in a small lagoon by the shore
of the Indian Ocean (Ratnakara). This bath
is called the Malavimochana Snana (bath for the removal of all dirt). After this, the
Sankalpa begins With sand and crude
colored palm-leaf ear-rings in hand, the pilgrim is required to address the Kritya
(demoness) or evil spirit guarding the waters and causing terror to the world, and reques her to accept the sand offerings for her food and allow him to bathe in the waters.


After performing the rites for getting rid of
the sin of Brahmahatya, Sri Rama came to
the place where he reclined on the Darbha
Sayanam; or Adi Setu to ward off the
after-effects of Brahmahatya. After
installation of Shivalinga at Rameswaram
and after visiting Adi Setu, Sri Rama
stopped his Pushpaka Vimana at Darbha
Sayanam to show his cons the place of his
fast and where he obtained the divine
weapon from Sri Adi Jagannatha.
