PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

UNIQUENESS

Pushkar is the only earthly abode extant of the Creator-Brahma, visited by millions of devotees year after year, since time immemorial. This is a Tirtha Kshetra, and in particular Brahma Kshetra, deemed to be the most holiest spot, either for Brahmopasana to fulfilling the earthly desires, or for Brahmalokaprati. This has several other unique plus points that raise the glory of this divya kshetra to the envy of other kshetras dedicated to other gods of similar significance. Starling from the Vedas down to sthalapuranas, many treatises enshrine unaccountable anecdotes concerning the greatness of this place, due to association of divinities like Brahma, and venerable sages like Viswamitra etc., hence pride of place goes to this holy place. Mahabharata says, "Just as Krishna Paramatma is deemed first, deserving the first place of honour among men and gods, so is Pushkar among the thirlhas". The waters of this Thirtha are imbued with divinity that sins committed from birth onwards, either due to ignorance, or under instigation of ego arc said to be destroyed by a mere single bath; and what is more, any type of incurable skin disease gets cured with a single sip.
