Thirst  is a biological demand, and for proper functioning of body appeasing it is a MUST. With the intake of liquid, not only thirst is slaked, but the body continues its movement. Water content alone causes mobility, since all the vital powers are in liquid state and their incessant flow makes the movement of organs possible. It is proved in labs that water is the main component of the chemical composition of the body. Further, the psychoanalysts recorded that a person weighing ten stones contains in himself ten gallons of water. If on any account its ratio is reduced, he falls prey to diseases. Total dehydration, needless to say leads to death.

So, intake of water in a wide variety of forms and colours ensures proper growth and preserves health. Haven't we heard and seen that even the satyagrahis, who observe fast - niraharadiksha are given water. It applies to all living organism. Birds and beasts are not excluded. why, even the vegetarian too occupies first rank in this respect. Fatigued bodies first opt for drink, and if limited quantity is not available, sprinkling a few drops on the body rejuvenates them. This accounts for abhisheka - bathing the archamurtis in the temples and people's craze for offering it. The gratified deities, in consequence shower boons out of proportion. A few among them, being abhishekapriyas desire and demand numerous varieties of abhishekas, like pannerabhishek, Jalabhishek, ikshurasabhishek, panchamritabhishek, grithabheshek etc. The list is incomplete.
