Mythology of the Baruni bath.

Once there was a quarrel between Brahma and Narasimha for his greatness. Both of them considered Shiva a mediator for their trial and expressed their concerns. Shiva said, “The one who can come from my feet to my head is the greatest. Narasimha did not go to Shiva’s head and returned from the half and said- ‘Mahadev! No one can walk from your feet to your head. Brahma, a short distance from Narasimha, met some flowers. He returned to tell Shiva that he had gone to Shiva’s head to give some flowers to false witnesses.

According to Brahma, some people lied in front of Shiva and cursed Shiva, calling Brahma a liar and cursing Brahma in anger. As Brahma prayed to Shiva to get rid of the curse, Shiva sacrificed him on the banks of the holy river Baitarani and asked him to please the sacrificial Vishnu. Brahma described the Birja area as a place of sacrifice and urged Baitarani to flow in it. Satisfied with Brahma’s praise, Baitarani followed Brahma. After a while, Brahma could not hear the sound. Looking back, the river disappeared.

As Brahma meditated to find out why, it rumored that he had hidden himself in fear of seeing the naked form of a woman in the dense forest. If Shivalinga installed in every corner, he can be free from sin in the philosophy of Shiva and go to the place of sacrifice. So Brahma erected one Shivalinga in each corner.

Setting up Shivalinga at Baitrani and Baruni.

He set up the first Shivalinga at a distance from the Gonasika mountain, which called Brahmeshwar. He then came to Baitarani, Birjakshetra after the installation of Shivalingas in Kushaleshwar, Ambakeshwar, Gateshwar, Lingeshwar, Bhuteswar, Bileshwar, Haranteshwar etc. in each corner.

The last of these genders is Siddheshwar. From here Brahma, Baitarani, is the answer, and Shivalinga is no longer seen. It is believed that if a person bathes in the Baruni shrine of Birjakshetra and gives a mass to his ancestors, he will be freed from ten kinds of sins.
