MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

DESCENT

The story goes that Sahyamuni desiring to release the people from sins was doing penance on Sahyadri Hills. His ghora tapas and its cause pleased Mahavishnu and he decided to send down to Mother Earth a potent force to cleanse the people from sins. It so coincided that Brahma too was making a plea for lifting mankind from sins. So he directed Krishnaveni to descend to earth to fulfill the objects of the two longing for lokoddharana. So it descended to the earth on the exact spot of the sage's penance, so that he too could partake a share of the merit, the- river going to gain by liberating people with its sacred waters krishna descending at that auspicious moment started flowing down the peaks. And on the way, it liberated those, who bathed and drank its waters. Several sacred shrines came into existence on the banks along its long course. When it neared the sea exactly at the present Vijayawada territory, its hilly area obstructed its perennial free flow.
