Take a dip, wash off sins

Pushkara_SnanamA dip in the river Godavari during Pushkaralu will wash off all sins and secures divine results for several births provided a devotee donates liberally, feeds poor, bathes in river and worships Gods and ancestors, according to puranas. Pushkara bath is the most sanctified because ancestors’ spirits, Gods and 3.5 crore worship centres around three words join the rivers during the Pushkara period. According to a legend, a Brahmin Mudgaludu assumes Pushkara form and settles down permanently in the ‘ kamandalam’ of Brahma. Pushkarudu along with star Guruvu will enter river Godavari only for 12 days as per a condition to drive away all sins of rivers. Brahma puranam says that ‘pushkaram’ gifts ‘pushti’ ( strength ) to a pilgrim. The divine sanctified Pushkara festival occurs once in 12 years.
