|ஆலயம் பற்றி : |
History Worship of lord siva was there in India even before Christian era. Saiva saints of first century sang about this temple. The initial stracture of this temple was constructed by the great Pallava dynasty. Tamil Chola kings and the Vijayanagara kings also gave great help for the temple development. Like other great temples, the construction period of Srikalahasthi lasted centuries. Near about tenth century, the Chola kings renovated the temple and constructed the main structure. The outer walls and the four gopurams were constructed in the period of Sri Veera Narasimharayar in twelfth century. The 120 feet high main gopuram and the 100 pillar mandapam were constructed by Krishnadeva Raya, the great Vijayanagara king in 1516. Nattukkotta Chettiyar of Devakkotta, developed the structure what we see today by spending on million dollar in 1912. This ancient temple dedicated to Lord Siva is one of the panchabhootha stalams (temples celebrating Lord Siva as the embodiment of the primary elements), air being the element in case here, the other five temples being Tiruvannamalai (fire), Chidambaram (space), Thiruvanikkaval (water) and Kanchipuram (earth) respectively. Sri Kalahasthi is located near the pilgrimage town of Tirupathi and is visited by thousands of pilgrims. The temple is also associated with Rahu and Kethu (of the nine grahams or celestial bodies in the Indian astrological scheme). The river Suvarnamukhi takes the northerly course at Sri Kalahasthi almost washing the west wall of the famous Sri Kalahasthi temple in the Chittor district of Andhra Pradesh. Inside this very large temple situated between two steep hills – Sripuram and Mummidi-cholapuram - is the Sivalinga set to represent the element of Vayu (air or wind), whose presence is evident by a continuous flame which flickers though there is no loophole for air to enter the temple. Sri Kalahasthi Temple is in fact considered as the Kailash of the south or Dakshin Kailash. The protector of devotees, the granter of boons, the merciful Lord Siva, the Three-eyed, manifested in the form of Vayu linga in the Bilwaka grove on the banks of river Suvarnamukhi. Lord Siva, manifest in the form of Vayu linga, is known to the devotees as Sri Kalahastheeswara. The greatness of the temple at Sri Kalahasthi is mentioned in the Sivapuranam. There is legend associated with the manifestation of Lord Siva as Vayu linga at Sri Kalahasthi. According to it, Lord Brahama was asked by Lord Siva to create Kailash. As Brahma was struggling with the task, as piece fell on the earth in the south and came to be known as Dakshin Kailash and Lord Siva chose to manifest at Dakshin Kailash as Vayu linga representing wind, is one of the five elements of nature, to satisfy the desires and wishes of his devotees. Ever ready to provide succor to devotees in distress, Lord Siva manifested at Sri Kalahasthi yielding to the request by the three dumb creatures – the Spider, the Serpent and the Elephant. Myths
suse 9.1downloads Sri : The Curse on Umanabha
Urnanabha, the Brahmin, was an excellent sculptor. He was the son of the renowned celestial sculptor Viswakarma in the Krta Yuga. Umanabha would, with his skill, create whatever Lord Brahma created. Lord Brahma was annoyed with Urnanabha indulging in the activity that was entrusted to him by Lord Siva. Angry at the transgression of his duty, Lord Brahma cursed Urnanabha that he would be born' as a spider in the Bilwaka grove.
Repentant at what he has done, Umanabha prayed to Lord Brahma for his mercy. A pacified Lord Brahma, the lotus seated, indicated that Urnanabha would be freed from his curse when he, as a spider, served Lord Siva in the Bilwaka grove in Dakshin Kailash. Urnanabha thus began his life as a spider in the Bilwaka grove yearning for Lord Siva's grace. One day, a devotee of Lord Siva was plucking leaves into a basket, for worship, from the tree where the spider was living. He went in to the river Suvarnamukhi to purify himself keeping the basket on the banks. When he came back to pick his basket of leaves, drops of water from his body fell on the leaf on which the spider was hiding. Immediately, he was reminded of the events in his previous birth that led to his present state. As the devotee was uttering each of the thousand names of Lord Siva and offering a leaf, the leaf behind which the spider was hiding, fell on the linga, and the spider came into contact with the linga. The spider thereupon climbed up a nearby tree.
As if the sculptor in Urnanabha, born as a spider, manifested again, the web was built to shield the linga from sun's rays. The spider stayed in the web, close to the Lord, and considered it its fortune to serve the Lord in such a manner. While the spider was thus serving the Lord, an incident took place as if to test the spider's devotion. The flame from one of the lamps close to the Linga, started rising. In his concern to protect the Lord, the spider, simpleton that he was, rushed down towards the flame. The Lord, pleased with the devotion shown by the spider, appeared in front of the spider and asked him to seek a boon. Overwhelmed, the spider said that he desired to be liberated. The Lord granted his request, and as the legend goes, said to the spider, "As you have served me here as a spider-devotee, the name of this temple shall have 'Sri' as a suffix from now on". Even today, the web-like form seen close to the base of the linga is believed to be an image of what the' spider-devotee had weaved. Kala
When we examine the various episodes presented in the Sivapurana, we notice the special place given to the serpent among al l creatures. So much so that when serpents are mentioned, the images of Lord Siva bedecked with serpents comes to one's mind. Once, long ago, the devas, proceeded to Mt. Kailash to have darshan of Lord Siva. At that time, Lord Siva, while setting His ornaments in order, found to His annoyment that the serpent was missing. With divya drshti, He noticed that the serpent had gone to Patalaloka to see his wife. The serpent came late to the abode of Lord Siva and incurred the wrath of the Lord who cursed him that as he had neglected his duty; he no longer deserved to remain in Mt. Kailash. So saying, the Lord banished the serpent to the earth.
The serpent prayed to the Lord to grant him mercy. The Lord, pacified, indicated to the serpent that he should proceed to the Bilwaka grove in Dakshin Kailash and serves Him and that he would be liberated during the fight that he would have with an elephant.
As ordained by the Lord, the serpent reached the Bilwaka grove and began to worship,the Lord everyday with invaluable gems after purifying himself in the Suvarnamukhi River. He spread his hood to cover the linga from sun's rays and was serving the Lord with great devotion. We shall see how the serpent's life became entwined with an elephant's life and how the serpent was liberated Hasthi
In Mt. Kailash, one of the Sivaganas, Hasthi by name once committed the sin of disturbing the privacy of the divine cou ple. This story instructs us the code of social conduct to be eschewed. Just as the serpent had to face the consequences of neglecting his duty, Hasthi had to suffer for his misconduct.
