ON PUSHKARAM

A glance at the legendary account illumines. A necessity now. Pushkaram is celebrated in commemoration of the visiting of Pushkar - the thirtharaj, who enters and dwells in rivers for 12 days once in every twelve years. His sway extends over three and half a crore of thirthas! He has an exalted position and it is held very sacred because of its powers of purification of sins gross and dross of earthly nature. It is believed that a single bath in the river, when he is present of course, invisibly is equal to the merit of taking bath in Ganges for sixty thousand years. Ah! what a fortune! How much purity!! Puranas extol this highly, and advocate bathing then vociferously. Many examples are cited in evidence of the fortune it confers on people.
