Chapter 328 - Greatness of Saṅgameśvara (Saṅgama-īśvara)

Īśvara said:

1-4. A sin-destroying holy spot and shrine named Saṅgameśvara is situated in the north-western direction therof (i.e. Mahodaya). Sages used to assemble here.

To the east thereof is the sin-destroying Kuṇḍikā where Sarasvatī flowed in along with the Baḍavānala (submarine fire). A man should bathe in the Kuṇḍikā and worship Saṅgameśvara. O great goddess, he will never be separated from Lakṣmī (prosperity, fortune) in the course of thousands of births along with sons and grandsons.

He will get rid of all sins committed ever since his birth till death.
