MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

There are numerous episodes that occurred on the banks of this river and imbued with bhaktirasa. As a matter of fact, the river Krishna with its abundant holy water has been making the citizens of this Vijayapuri immensely distinguished and extensively reputed in every realm of human action. Illustrious persons were born here to uphold the torch of Dharma burning every bright. As if to replenish the devotional fervour, the river Krishna swells and flows to unprecedented heights once in every 12 years, called Krishna pushkaram, when Brihaspathi enters kanyarasi. People in lacs visit and bathe in the sacred waters for making lives blissful. Tradition says that the thirty-three crore devatas including the Trio bathe in it, in addition to abiding in it during this period. And is auspicious for offering pindas to the manes and it accrues merit equal to bathing in all the sacred rivers. And it is believed that there lie many famous thirthams, like Chakra, Mukti, Sankha, Narasimha, Trisula, Indra and Rishi in the river itself. Their presence is heightening its potency. Hence the saying what with a mere look at the water, sins take to flight. And a bath makes one sin-proof. Sipping exhilarates and remembering emancipates.
