Kashi Vishwanath's Jalabhishek gets permission, 11 devotees and four Damru players will be able to be Abhishek:
Hello friends, there is great news for Baba’s devotees from the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi, the center of faith of millions of devotees. Permission has been given to perform traditional Jalabhishek at Nirjala Ekadashi on Tuesday, 2 June in Kashi Vishwanath Temple. The temple administration has asked only eleven devotees and four Damru players to perform Jalabhishek in the temple.
The annual Kalash Yatra of Kashi Vishwanath is done every year for 20 years:
People are very happy after this decision of the temple administration. For 20 years, Kashi Vishwanath annual Kalash yatra has been organized every year on the occasion of Jasht Shukla Ekadashi every year. But this year it is not possible.
A large number of people are involved in this journey. The government has issued guidelines that this tradition is not possible this year due to an increase in infection of corona this year. The district administration issued a letter permitting Kashi Vishwanath Ji to perform Jalabhishek.
Baba Kashi Vishwanath Jalabhishek in Kashi is historical:
Baba Kashi Vishwanath’s Jalabhishek has been a historical precursor. Talking of the past few years, Baba is anointed with the water of Kashi Vishwanath 1008 Kalash on the occasion of Nirjala Ekadashi led by representatives of 11 Jyotirlingas.
There is a tradition of joining the Kalash Yatra originating from the Ganges coast between Shankh Sound and Damru. It starts with Gauri-Ganesh and Ganga Pujan at Rajendra Prasad Ghat. Thousands of devotees visit this place.
Baba's Jalabhishek takes place from the waters of Ganga Gomti and Sangam:
Let me tell you that Kalash Puja is done before Baba Vishwanath’s Jalabhishek. By filling the water and milk of Ganga, Gomti, and Sangam in the Kalash, the devotees make the whole Kashi devotional with the shouts of Shiva and the shout of every Mahadev.
All are anointed to wish Mars. Also tell you that the Kalash Yatra of Baba reaches Vishwanath Temple via Dashashwamedha, Godoulia, Bansfataka, Gyanvapi, where Baba’s consecration takes place.
