Adikesava Perumal with Pasupathiswarar Temple
Temple history of Adhikesava Perumal with Pasupatheeswarar Vedas is general and universal with no differences between cast, religion, ethnicity, community and what not. Though, Vedas are in four parts, the number of parts is uncountable. The world moves round due to the force of the Vedas. We inhale, and exhale the energy of the Vedas in very breath. If we use our rationale in bad ways, we will face pains, diseases and suffer. In the present day world the tendency to realize Vedas is reducing, so we face all problems in this Kali Yuga. In order to alleviate this, Lord Pasupatheeswarar disseminated the importance of Vedas to the world. This is in Pandanallur and 35 Kms from Kumbakonam.
The History of the Pasupathiswarar Temple
The Ultimate Lord jubilantly protects the entire world. Ambigai (The Goddess Parasakthi) once desired to play ball games. When She prayed Lord, He made the four Vedas in the form of a ball and gave it to Her. The Goddess Parasakthi then was playing happily with the ball along with Her friends at Thirukayilai (the Home of God). The play was too fun such that the Sun God did not want to interrupt, and did not set at usual time in the evening. Due to this, the day was prolonging for a long time. The world was in pell-mell due to prolonged day, and Naratha who wanted to report about this to Goddess Parasakthi was ignored. The Lord got annoyed by this and kicked the ball and the ball hit the world. Goddess Parashakthi then profusely apologized to the Lord, and came down to the world in the form of a cow. The Lord also then came down to earth in the form of Kovalan. Both the Lord and the Goddess lived in the ashram of Saint Kannuva.
After that they changed themselves in their original form and thus a Temple for them was created. This temple is now known as Pasupatheeswarar Temple. Details of the History of the Temple The Lord Shiva was angry with the Goddess Parvathi due to her unmindful playing of the ball with Her friends. Lord Shiva felt that due to the ball play, Parvathi had created confusion on the earth, and never listened to him. Therefore He cursed Her to go to earth as a cow. Having realized Her mistake She asked pardon to Shiva. At that time Shiva asked Her to go to the ashrum of Kannuva Munivar and start praying for Him. “I would then go there and relieve you of the curse, and marry you and also present the ball for your happiness” He said It is believed that just hearing this history and details and understand the pride of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, the devotees would come out of their diseases, become rich, and could lead a peaceful life.
