Pushkar

Pushkar along the bank of the picturesque Pushkar Lake, which is an important pilgrimage for the Hindus. One of the most sacred lakers in india is that of pushkar, which is only rivalled by the lake of Mansourwar, in Tibet. It is situated in a narrow valley surrounded by immense mounds of shifting sand; and a few isolated peaks stand out on its borders with great effect. Its form is nearly a perfect oval, and at its southern extremity it empties itself by a narrow canal into an immense marsh.The origin of this lake is attributed to Lord Brahma.

The story goes that the god, wishing to celebrate sacrifice of Yug, stopped for that purpose in the valley, having first placed genii at the entrance of all passes to keep off the evil spirits. Just as he was going to perform the cermony, he perceived that his wife Saraswati had not accompanied him; and, as the presence of a woman is necessary, he employed one of the Apsaras. Saraswati was so grieved at this infidelity that she hid herself in the mountains to weep, and was transformed into a fountain. Several centuries after, one of the Purihara Kings of Mundore lost his way while hunting, and, feeling healed of a disease previously incurable, and recognised the miraculous property of the spring. Shortly afterwards he returned, and had a basin dug out to receive the waters, which now from the lake of pushkar.

This lake soon become a favourite resort of pilgrims, and during the midlle Ages temples and cenotaphs. Gradually quite a town of relegious buildings sprang up, peopled by Brahmins. The wealthy pilgrims from all parts of India brought untold riches to Pushkar, and the princes spared no expense to enrich the holy inhabitations of the sacred town.

People consider the water of the Pushkar lake to be very sacred and the ritual of taking dips in the holy water is believed to bestow salvation. The holy dip is most auspicious on Kartik purnima. Even before sunrise, people descend the ghats, aided by the pandas [Brahmin priests] to take the sacred bath. Offerings of coconut, flowers, and cash are made to the lake and the priests.

Padma Purana, elaborately describes the origin and importance of this lake. It says that Brahma, the Creator of the Universe, was once contemplating to locate a suitable spot on earth to perform a 'Yajna' (sacrificial ritual), the lotus fell from his hand and rebounding, struck the earth at three places within a circuit of kms. Water issued forth, from all the three places and the Creator called all the three as Pushkar (lotus) distinguishing them as 'Jyeshtha' (elder), 'Madhya' (central) and 'Kanishtha' (younger).
