Chapter 357 - Greatness of Śṛṅgeśvara (Śṛṅga-īśvara)

Īśvara said:

1. Thereafter, O great goddess, one should go to the excellent Śṛṅgeśvara in the vicinity of Śukra-Sthāna. It is destructive of all sins.

2. After taking bath there, a man should worship Śṛṅgeśa as per procedure. He becomes absolved of all sins as in the case of Ṛṣyaśṛṅga formerly.
