This is what was quoted by him to describe Benaras or Varanasi. Considered as the abode of Lord Shiva, Varanasi is situated on the banks of the Ganges River, which is believed to have the power of washing away all of one's sins. As pundits here will tell you, whatever is sacrificed and chanted here or given in charity reaps its fruits thousand times more than those good deeds performed at other places because of the power of that place. It is believed that three nights of fasting in Varanasi city can reap you rewards of many thousands of lifetimes of asceticism! We say a night at the Benaras at Shanti Home can have the same effect!!
