The Glory of Kasi

Skanda purana embodies the origin of this holy place and narrates several glories connected with the sports of Lord Maheswar played in this thirtha kshetra. It is Maheswar's capital, and He abides in it enternally. Bhaktavasankar - the Omni benevolent God is the supreme brilliance and shines in all His resplendent splendour to light up the way for his children's Nirvana-kas to shine; he releases the worshippers from the shackles of Punarjanma. To live, or die in Kasi is considered meritorious and several millions of devout Hindus prefer living here in the last stage of their life. Some go to the extent of taking the vow of kshetrasanyasa -- living in the presence of deity, and under no circumstances going beyond five knosas of Lord Mahadev; for, dying in Kasi ensures liberation -- from the wheel of transmigration.
