The Appearance of Vimala-kunda”
There is a story related in the Puranas regarding the appearance of Vimala-kunda.
Once during ‘chaturmasya’, all the sacred ‘tirthas’ or holy places in the world visited Kamyavana to pay their homage to Krishna, but the sacred lake Pushkara Tirtharaja failed to come.
Therefore, in order to compensate for Pushkara Tirtha’s failure to appear, Krishna caused a very powerful jet of water to come shooting out of the ground which eventually created a large kunda.
Within that flow of water, a very beautiful young girl appeared and began to serve Krishna in different ways.
In no time a lake formed and after sporting and enjoying various pastimes in the lake with the beautiful young girl, Krishna blessed her saying that from this day onwards, she would be known as Vimala Devi and this sacred kunda would be named after her, and by bathing only once in this kunda, it would be equal to bathing seven times in the sacred lake of Pushkara.
The Puranas say that the goddess Vimala Devi eternally resides here in this holy kunda.
