Varanasi, also known as Kashi, is one of the holiest cities in India and is considered a sacred place for performing Tharpanam (Pind Daan). The city has several mythological stories associated with it, which highlight the significance of performing Tharpanam (Pind Daan) in Varanasi.
One such story is that of Lord Shiva and his consort, Goddess Parvati. It is believed that Lord Shiva himself established the city of Kashi and declared it to be a place of ultimate liberation. According to legend, a demon named Tarakasura was causing havoc in the universe and could only be defeated by Lord Shiva's son. However, Lord Shiva's son was not born yet, so Lord Brahma suggested that Lord Shiva should marry Parvati and have a child with her. Lord Shiva and Parvati agreed and performed their marriage ceremony in Kashi. It is believed that the city is thus blessed by Lord Shiva's presence and is a place of ultimate liberation.
Another story associated with Varanasi is that of King Harishchandra. King Harishchandra was a righteous ruler who suffered many hardships and lost his kingdom due to his commitment to truth and integrity. He eventually ended up in Varanasi and lived in poverty, performing Tharpanam (Pind Daan) for his ancestors. It is believed that Lord Vishnu was pleased with his devotion and restored his kingdom and wealth.
Performing Tharpanam (Pind Daan) in Varanasi is believed to bring blessings and liberation for the departed soul. It is said that the city has the power to free the soul from the cycle of birth and death and help it attain moksha or salvation.
