GURU DATTATREYA OF GANAGAPUR

THIRTHAS

There are many thirthas lying at 5 KM in the course of the river Bhima and they are as holy as Kasi, Prayag, Gaya and hence the preference for Guru's settlement. The waters at the confluence of Bhima and Amaraja are extremely holy. The river Amaraja has an odd story. According to legend, when gods fought against Jalandhara, many of them died during the war. This is that scene of action, and to revive them amrit was brought from heaven. Some drops spilled at this spot and from them rose Amaraja and it started flowing thenceforth. At the confluence of Amaraja and Bhima there is the Shatkula thirtha and a dip in it ensures emancipation and it is equal to Prayag. There is a Shiva temple opposite Narasimha thirtha. In addition there are many thirthas, like Rudra thirtha, Manamantha thirtha, Koti thirtha, Bhagirathi thirtha, Manikarnika thirtha, Gokarna thirtha etc. Pilgrims bathe in all of them and offer pindas to the manes. And each is associated with some divine participation and imbued with mysticism. The Joshis guide the pilgrims in all from start to finish.
