[Sanskrit text for this chapter is available]

Īśvara said:

1. Towards its (i.e. of Kālamegha) southern quarter, at a distance of five Dhanus, O my dear, there are, even today, Kuṇḍas of hot water, O lady of beautiful countenance.

2. On the eastern side of the Kuṇḍas, within a distance of twenty-five Dhanus there stands Goddess Rukmiṇī, the destroyer of all sins.

3. After taking a bath in the Kuṇḍa of hot water, destructive of ten million killings (murders), one should worship Goddess Rukmiṇī, the donor of gold. There is no break in the family for seven births in the case of women.
