The tradition of bathing was observed on Saturday at the Pushkarini Kunda Chakra in Varanasi Manikarnika Ghat. Due to the epidemic, there are no ordinary followers, but the priest’s family plunged into the pool with a desire for freedom from sin and virtuous fruits. On Saturday, after Mother Manikarnika’s adornment, the priest’s family decorated the mother with special rituals after bathing.The mother’s procession didn’t go out due to the epidemic and the statue didn’t go into the pool. Every year on the Akshaya Tritiya, the deity of Mother Manikarnika was placed in the middle of the Chukrapushkarani Kund, but since last year the corona epidemic has dwarfed the tradition.

High priest Jayendra Nath Dubey Babbu Maharaj said the public bath was postponed due to the epidemic. Only the people of the priestly family continued the bathing ritual. The trailer bath was postponed for two consecutive years due to a corona infection.

The priest said that it is believed that the idol of Ashtadhatu of Manikarnika Maa came from this pond in ancient times. This two and a half foot high statue is in the temple in the Brahmnal. Only Akshaya Tritiya is taken out of service and placed on a 10 foot high brass pedestal for worship, which is located by the idol Kund. It is believed that bathing in Manikarnika Mai will prove the water of Tirtha Kunda for the next year and bathing in this water will remove the sins of the devotees.

Bathing in the Manikarnika Chakra Pushkarni Kund at the Manikarnika Ghat leads to achieving renewable fruits. According to Kashi Khanda, it existed before the descent of the Ganges. Lord Vishnu has been austerity here for thousands of years to please Bholmath. He had installed the Kunda with his Sudarshan Chakra to bathe Bholmath and Goddess Parvati. Manikarnika got the name after Karna Kundal of Maa Parvati fell into the pool while bathing. Bathing here is more important on Akshay III.
