Babaji: The Mystic of the Kumbh Mela

The origin of the Kumbh is very old and dates back to the time when Kalasha (pot of nectar of immortality) was recovered during the churning of the primordial sea, for which a tense war between Devtas (gods) and Asuras (demons) ensued. To prevent the Amrita Kalasha being forcibly taken into possession by Asuras, who were more powerful than Devtas at that time, its safety was entrusted to the Devtas. The Devtas ran away with the Amrita Kalasha to hide it from the Asuras. Learning the conspiracy of Devtas, the Asuras turned ferocious and chased the  Devtas running with Amrita Kalasha. The chase lasted twelve days and nights during which the Devtas and Asuras went around the earth. During this chase, Devtas put Amrita Kalasha at four places in India namely Haridwar (Uttar Pradesh), Prayag (Uttar Pradesh), Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) and Nasik (Maharashtra).

 

To commemorate this holy event of the Amrita Kalash being put at four places, the Kumbh Mela is celebrated every twelve years. According to other Puranic legends, actual fights took place between Devtas and asuras resulting in the Amrita Kalash being knocked, out of which Amrita (Nectar) fell down at the above four places.
