       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

THE STORY OF MOKSHA KUND

It runs - once there lived here a sage called Kausika with his wife doing meditation. There came one day a visitor by name Richika, who narrated his own strange story thus - he was an inveterate bachelor, who spent his whole life in meditation. On account of this pious life he was blessed with Kamagamana traveling anywhere he liked - flying, driving, walking with atmic powers. He visited all the lokas and availed the darsan of deities in temples. Once he heard moaning sounds from a deep dark pit. When he went there, he saw several persons standing in mid air sans support. When questioned, they said they were condemned to this punishment due to one of their children remaining bachelor and they would be emancipated, if his sins were purged off. Further narration proved that the listening Richika was their descendent responsible for their misery. He atonce prayed for instant solution. They directed him to Kousika, who by his taposakti would relieve them. Taking pity on Richika and his ancestors, Kousika dug a small kund in front of his asram and sprinkled Kamandal water. The spiritual eminence of Kausika was so great that Bhimarati came underground and filled the kund, Richika was asked to bathe in it to be freed from sin. He did. At once his ancestors obtained moksha. That is the glory of the Mokshakund. Here are located several other holy thirthas like Sarvathirtha, Jayakund and Kusharanya thirtha and each has a story of its own and confers merit, if bathed.
