The importance of the Kaagina river and the origin of
the birth of this sacred river are decscribed in Jaiteerth Vijaya(2).
Each and every action of ours will be as per the will and wish of Sri Hari.For this our great Sri Purandara Dasaru has said in his PADAS-Sakalavoo Hari Seve Yenni.All this is the Service of Sri Hari-Narayana-Vishnu.
Once Agasthya Maharshi went on a pilgrimage to acquire Punya.He bathed in all the Sacred rivers-Teerthas-Pushkaranis and collected the water in his Kamandalu.with Satisfaction and Proud he was passing through the Hills of Ananthagiri.Mean while Agasthya received the nature’s call .He placed his filled – water Kamandalu on a stone and went .As per the Will and Wish of Sri Hari and Sri Vayu Devaru Indra was actually waiting in the form of a crow and Spilled the entire water of that Kamandalu.Agasthya became angry and cursed Indra to be born on this earth as a human man.
That Spilled Kamandalu flown like a river .As the crow has Spilled,Sri Agasthya Sage named the river as KAAGINA. Indra with repentance asked Agasthya what is next? Agasthya told that when Indra gets Deeksha of a pontiff he will get Mukti Liberation from this human bondage-that Sri Dhondo Raya took Deeksha from Sri Akshobhyateertharu.Sri Dhondoraya is Indra this Dhondoraya was none, other than Jaiteertharu.
Agasthya sage knew the whole thing through his Divya Drushti He himself took the first holy bath in that sacred river Kaagina His joy knew no bonds. All the Sacred rivers total accumulation is in the river Kaagina. Devotees take a holy dip in this River with that belief and thinking.
Agasthya is responsible for several water facilities such as TANKS,WELLS,RIVERS and PUSHKARANIS etc.This river Kaagina taking birth in the Anathagiri Hills flown through Chitapur,Sedam,Shahabad and Malkhed and joined the river Bheema.For the sake of Sri Jaiteertharu Kaagina is born.
Sri Jaiteertharu Composed Commentary-Proper Commentary i.e.Teekas to the works of Sri Madacharya and entered Brindavana while he was alive by the side of his Guru Sri Akshobhyateerthara Brindavana on the bank of Kaagina at Malkhed.The flowing lullaby of Kaagina is heard mildy.Jaiteertharu is Blessing the Devotees with Gnyaana-Vairaagya-Sacchastra.Taking bath in the Kaagina river means we have taken bath in all the sacred rivers.
are grateful to Malkhed-Kaagina.
