 tuesday and story time

this story was told by my grandmom

Lord Shiva and Parvathy were discussing about people loosing faith in god, river Ganga appears in front of them and says that she is loosing the sanctity and no one considers her pure 

Lord Shiva says there are people still who believe that taking a hold dip in Ganges will get rid of them all the sins they have done till that minute

Ganga was not convinced. Lord Shiva and Parvathi said they will prove it

they both took the form of a very aged brahmin and his wife, the old man could walk only with a stick holding on to his wife.

they went toKasi  Vishwanathar temple , had dharshan there, people who thronged the temple for dharshan on that day, felt pity for the couple as there was no one ( children of theirs) to help them

they had dharshan and took rest near the shore of ganges, when the brahmin panted for breath, and slowly fainted 
his wife was very much shocked to see his man breathing his last

people who passed by gave some water but no use
the old brahmin was dead

the  wife was all tears  crying loudly that they have no one and who will
do the last rites for him as they have no children

some men in the crowd said they are ready to do it

but the lady denied saying one who hasnt done any sin till the present minute can only do the last rituals for the brahmin
as he is a pious soul

many withdrew as they thought they have done sins and they are not free of it 
time was running out and the brahmin had to be creamated before dusk

the lady was crying loud, saying if he would not be creamated that day then his sould would attain hell

hearing the loud cry a young man came to their rescue
he ssaid he would creamate the body of the brahmin
the wife said about teh condition that the man who hasnt done any sin can only do the creamation

the man thought for a minute and said he will be back in a few minutes
he rushed to the temple, applied the vibhuthi or the sacred ash, ran to the river ganga, and took holy dip for three times  and came back to the place where everyone where gathered around the couple

the man said before taking dip in the river he was a sinful man but now he has got rid of all the sins he had done till  the minute before he took the holy dip and now he is pure and can do the  last rituals 

Ganga who was watching this was very much pleased
Lord Shiva and Parvathi took their original forms

no one except the man could have the dharshan of  Lord Shiva Parvathi and Ganga
they were very much pleased with his gesture and blessed him

Lord shiva told ganga that people still believe in the sanctity of the river and ganga was all smiles

today we are gonna learn about HALU RAMESHWARA 
a temple famous for its wishing well

its situated near hosadurga near chitradurga  in karnataka
the main deity is Lord Shiva

the name halu meaning milk in kannada because the tank oof the temple contains water with a milky tinge

the speciality of this temple is the wishing well

There is a small pond inside the temple from which various articles such as flowers, fruits, coconut, rice, bangles etc pop up. One has to buy an offering ticket to visit this temple. One has to make a wish and wait besides the pond and something would pop up from the pond. A priest will tell you meaning of each things as received "Prasad" so obtained

some even get cooked rice as Prasad from the pond. Since pilgrims make offerings as "Ganga Puja" in the same pond/well, it is believed that these pop up by the upward stream of water. If you get Cradle you will be blessed with children's in next one year and if you have committed something you have to come back and full fill the same. Some will get banana, Some will get "Vila deli and Calcium" even many scientist cannot beat this miracle as heavy items will float in water. It is a real challenge to the whole scientific world.

with firm belief you hve to make a wish and wait for a few mins if you get anyting from the pond then your wish will be fulfilled
some even return empty handed

i personally visited the temple but didnt have courage to sit in teh corridor of the well
as its said that the depth of the well is not known
some even say that a sage does penance inside the water ( i dont know how far its true)

but my sister and uncle went inside sat on the corridor and prayed for a few minutes ( may be wished for something)
a betal leaf floated and came towards my sis ( she got married very soon after this incident)

my uncle got  a banana  and he got admission M. Tech in IIT madras

a must watch temple
came to know that its being made commercial ( not sure) 
but when we visited it 15 years back the miracle happened
