MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

RIVER KRISHNA AND ITS GLORY

River Krishna is one of the major rivers of Dakshinapatha and the puranas described it as holier than Ganga; the world renowned river, distinguished for purity, sanctity and eternity. Skandapurana gives a full length picture of its tracing its origin from Sahyadri to its Sangam in the sea-the Bay of Bengal. It is HariHaryatmaka, Trimurthyatmaka and Sarvadevatatmakait embodies in it the powerful amsas-aspects of Brahma. Vishnu, Maheswara and all the celestials. They joined it in the form of tributaries at several places. It is made holier further by the Maharshts, who sitting on its banks did penance and glorified it by their tapassakti. It has countless kshetras along its banks dedicated to almost all the gods adorning the Hindu pantheon. On account of this peculiar impact, it liberates mankind by a mere look, touch, or praise, even without ever reaching it for bathing or sipping. There are numerous thirthas along its course, why even in it at this place. Hence its virtues are manifold, powers unaccountable than the Ganga; for, the river Ganges purges of the sins of the bathers however heinous they are, but cannot cleanse itself of its sins, whereas Krishna has such infinite, inherent, potential that it cleanses of its sins too, in addition to the bathers. It is illustrated through an episode, which finds a mention in the puranas.
