PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

ANTIQUITY

As it is predominantly a Brahma Kshetra covering Brahma's life from the first visit to demonstration of awe inspiring sports, appropriate beginning starts with his Bhupradakshna. Padma Purana embodies an elaborate account about this. It appears that when he was going round the world; he chanced to visit this eye -filling and soul-lifting divyarama, now lying adjacent to Pushkar. And it recreated before his mental eye the apurva sobha of Nandanavana. Enraptured by the luxuriant foliage and bounteous growth of multi-coloured sweet-scented flowers and - overhanging delicious fruits-all seemed bent upon offering, as it were, sumptuous banquet to his eye and soul; and Nature dancing to the tunes of mellifluous music of carefree birds, he became totally oblivious. of the surroundings. Realising him to be Brahma, Vandevatha regaled him with the intrinsic charms and dulcet melody of her flora and fauna at the height of their gorgeous beauty. In that mood of inebriety, Pitamaha asked the Vanadevatha to name any boon to be granted to her on the spot. Devout Vanadevatha modestly solicited him to stay there with them for ever; for, dwelling of such august divinity amidst them would itself a fortune nonpareil, and wishes reach consummation even before they were baptised. Contented Vidhatha said Thadastu'. The infinite ecstatic joy of the Nature manifested itself there in sumptuous colour and symphonic sweet music from every inch, as evidenced by showers of flowers, and rhythmic falling of ripe fruits at his feet. It was a veritable Vanamahotsava never occurred in the past, nor would repetition be possible in any tense of time. Then Brahma made this spot as his earthly abode. He remained. there for centuries, when beautitude reigned supreme to the utmost gratification of Vanadevatha.
