The concept of jalaadhivaasa is unique as it concive that the Kundhalinisthaahapana done thrugh kauthuka-bandhana will help the bimba is attain stage of samaadhi or thuryaapeetha-avastha. For this the bimba is taken to a tank or theertha with all musical accompaniments and pomp and most reverntly the bimba is immersed in water by placing it on a long wooden plank of arayaal with the head of the bimba towards the east. Teh rites here are elaborate with praanaayaama and manthras followed by rituals like dik-bandha. The sankalpa here is that when the bimba is immersed in water it attains the stage of samaadhi. The bimba is kept in the tank or theerthha-jala for three consecutive nights. To avoid any disturbance to the samaadhi stage of the bimba a temporary shed is built near the tank and guards posted to ensure silence and safety. In case, dwaja-prathishta is done along with the principal deity the bimbas of vaahana and ashta'-dik-paalas for the dwaja are also taken to the tank and subjected to jalaadhivaasa. The bimbas thus kept in the tank are taken out only on the afternoon of the previous day of consecration.
