According to various accounts, we came across every tirtha on t5he back of this divine mountain and it is said as the second form of some sage or divine being or a devotee of Lord Srinivasa. Having a holy dip in one of these seven Tirthas will assure the devotee a permanent place at the Vaikuntha, the divine abode of Sri Maha Vishnu. here it is being observed that Swami Pushkarini is at the forefront of the seven tirthas of salvation. While there are several accounts in Brahmanda, Skanda, Varaha, Bahvishyottara, Padma, and Vamana Puranas praising the greatness of Swami Pushkarini, the account found in Brahma Purana needs special attention as it gives the details of the origin of this Sacred Tirtha on this Venkatachala.
