“ If one bathes and sips water where the Ganga, Yamuna, and Sarasvati meet, he enjoys liberation, and of this there is no doubt”. -Padma Purana, Uttara Khanda 23.14 “Those who bathe in the bright waters of the Ganga where they meet the dark waters of the Yamuna during the month of Magh will not be reborn, even in thousands of years”. – Matsya Purana 107.7 The Prayaga Mahatmya is another text, which covers chapters 103-112 of the Matsya Purana, with verses on the Kumbh Mela. The Rig veda speaks of the benefits of bathing at the sangam in the period of the mela, which rids the person of negative energies and brings in positivity into their soul. Prayer offerings are also expressed in Atharva Veda and Yajur Veda. Atharva Veda (IV.34.7; XIX.53.3), three from the Rig Veda (I.8.9, X.89.7, XII.3.23) and one from the Yajur Veda (Madhyandina, 19.87). Of the Atharva Veda verses— ‘चतुर: कुम्भांश्चतुर्धा ददामि’’- a hymn in glorification of the Vishtari sacrifice and ‘पूर्ण: कुम्भोSधिकाल आहितस्तं’—’godly time’. प्रयागः सर्वतीर्थेभ्यः प्रभवत्यधिकं विभो ॥ श्रवणात् तस्य तीर्थस्य नामसंकीर्तनादपि । मृत्तिकालम्भनाद्वापि नरः पापात् प्रमुच्यते ॥ Mahabharat 3.83.75 Meaning of above Sloka is - O King! Prayag is the superior most among all pilgrimage places. If its greatness is heard, its Name is chanted or if its soil is smeared on the body, man will be liberated from all sins.
