TIRUPATI

The second episode is embodied in the epic Mahabharata. A certain brahmin by name Kasyapa renowned for his mastery over Ayurveda, was successfully curing all the ailments, inclusive of snake bite. When he was sent for to save King Parikshit bitten by Taksha, a powerful serpent, he did not , oblige the dying king, due to the bribes in the form of Jewels he received from Taksha; and so Parikshit died. A doctor according to scriptures should save patients including his inveterate enemies too with proper medication, if he has medicines with him, if not he incurs sin. As Kasyapa, did not go to save the dying king, he committed the sin of regicide and it started haunting him. According to the advice of elders, he bathed in this Pushkarini, and was rid of his sin. Besides, the water is so sacred that it cures several types of skin diseases. Hence the craze for a bath in it. Every pilgrim bathes in it invariably before entering the sanctum.
