Now turn to details, and a little probe will be quite rewarding.  Legends speak that Brihaspathi - the Devaguru enters into each of the twelve rasis and lives in it for one full year. Just at this auspicious moment, Pushkar along with his three and half crore thirthas, and Maharshis join him and make the water holy.  The Ganga Pushkaram begins with the advent of Brihaspathi in the Mesha rasi and he lives there for one full year. Like wise when he enters in Vrishabharasi , Narmada Pushkaram; Saraswathi Pushkaram when in Mithinarasi; Yamuna Pushkaram when in Karkatarasi, Godavari Pushkaram when in Simharasi, Krishna Pushkaram when in Kanyarasi;  Kaveri  Pushkaram when in Tularasi; Bhimarathi Pushkaram when in Vrischika rasi; Pushkara Pushkaram when in Dhanurasi; Tingabhadra Pushkaram when in Makararasi; Sindhu Pushkaram when in Kumbharasi and Praneetha Pushkaram when in Meenarasi are celebrated with all pomp and splendour due. The first twelve days of the year of his entering are held very sacred. Then the thirtha raj Pushkar and his horde of three and half of crore thirthas dwell making the water sacred. Along with the first 12 days of his entering, and twelve days before his leaving are deemed very auspicious and so people in crores, undergoing all hardships go to the rivers and follow scriptual injuctions, like bathing, gifting, feeding etc.  For twelve days, the whole river banks reverberate with song and gaiety and it becomes a Herculean task to the governments to regulate and look after the visiting pious men for bath and other activities. Some states spend crores of rupees to make elaborate preparations for the successful conduct of these festivals to the comfort of people.  Religiosity reaches the apex and devotion enjoys its heyday.
