Chapter 27 - Effect of Cakra Tīrtha

Pulastya said:

1. Then the best king, go to the Cakra Tīrtha, in comparison to which there is no other better place of pilgrimage. The influential God Viṣṇu had left his Cakra, i.e., His discus here.

2. Killing the demons, the God Viṣṇu entered into the beautiful torrent here and had washed Himself completely by a bath.

3. Those who perform the Śrāddha here both in the retiring i.e. the sleeping place of Hari as well as in His place of contemplation, get their forefathers contented till the persistence of the Creation, O king.
