TALAKAVERI & ITS GLORY

FESTIVALS 

Of the festivals celebrated, the Tulasankrama falling in the month of October tops the list. It is called the Cauvery Jatra or Cauvery Pushkar. It is celebrated on the exact moment when the Sun enters intothe sign of Libra. Whether it is day or night, people in their lakhs await this auspicious moment and at the right time enter the big pond for holy bath with a zeal as great as the members gather on the bank, which normally exceeds lakhs; for, there prevails a custom in the whole of Mercara that each house must send two pilgrims to the temple on this day invariably. This tradition has been followed with great rigidity, as it were, since the beginning. After ducking in the water and sipping the thirtha thrice, they emerge and offer dhakshana to the priests sitting on the bank, who sprinkling a few drops of chanted water mutter some slokas that are efficiacious to the theists. The bathers collect some water from the tank to taking it home for distribution among their friends and relatives. These festivals last for a month normally, of course with decreasing strength of visitors along with the sanctity as well. All along the road from Bhagamandal to Talakaveri, Peddlars with a wide variety of their wares do a roaring business, during the season. The beggars and sanyasis too amass fabulous wealth then. This uniqueness either in the number of shrines at the source, celebration of festivals is not or found anywhere to any river. So is the perennial charm it is holds on religionists. A visit - worthy thritha kshetra. A soul-lifting experience to be cherished for ever.
