The emergence of Dharmapitha is inbued with mysticism and opened the eyes of the defaulters to the gravity of offence perpetrated on the honest creditors. Its progress through the centuries is recorded with utmost objectivity and is available for scrutiny of the sceptics dangling in the mid-air like Trisanku.  Now listen to its background.

The word 'Dharmasthala' has such a rich meaning that it at once exhilarates the religious minded man at its very mention by opening a vista of colourful history of the bygone past of a land, soaked in Dharma - righteousness. It connotes a place where Dharma hovers over eternally, and is abiding in every grain of its soil. As such, if adharma-injustice in any of its manifestations, like speech or action tries to make a dent into it, it gets pulverised sooner than its appearance. Dharma and only Dharma in its pristine purity and unadulterated form exists here, and Dharma Devata taking her seat here rules through her deputy, who administers justice purely on the merits of the cases referred to, regardless of their kinship with caste, creed, religion region, language and other sinister forces existing only to tearing mankind into an infinite number of fragments. It is here Dharma is enthroned on Dhramapitha for the benefit of those desiring to abide by its bidding to enjoying bliss. It is here the guardian angels of Dharma descended to direct a couple dedicated to Dharma to establish and administer Dharma, promising to fill the land with Dharmanirati by their invisible, eternal vigilance for propagation, promotion and perpetuation of ever-pure and never - perishable Dharma.
