on the base of Himalaya, River Ganga, Cauvery, Yamuna and
Saraswathi are playing in the sky one ghandharvan (person who
belong to Deva logam) saw these rivers playing and worshipped
them. Seeing this all the 4 river women started saying
themselves that he worshipped them only. They started arguing
on whom actually he worshipped. The argument continued but didn't
stop. Yamuna and Saraswathi stopped their quarrel. But
to Ganga and Cauvery it continued. Finally, they both went to
Ganga told to Narayanan since she was originated from the feet
of Narayanan, she is bigger and mightier than Cauvery. Sriman
Narayanan accepted it. But, Cauvery doesn't accept it and she
did tapas on Sriman Narayanan. Finally, Narayanan gave seva to
her and told him that he will sleep on the bank of Cauvery and
at that time, river Cauvery will be the garland (Maalai) in
his chest, which will the better position than Ganga, who is
found in his feet. This is the sthalapuranam said here.
gave the Vimaanam of Srirangam to Brahma Devan. Brahma Devan
gave this to "Itsuvaghu" who is one of the King of
Sooriya family. From
to Lord Rama time, this Vimaan was worshipped and belonged to
Ramar who took the avathaar as an ordinary human being,
worshipped Sri Ranganathan, the God is also named as "Periya
Perumal". After his pattabishekham (crowned as king), he
gave the Thiru Aranga Vimaanam to King Vibeeshan, which
belongs to Ayodhya Dynasty .
along with the Thiruvaranga temple vimaanam, he kept the
vimaanam in the midst of Cauvery river to worship it. During
the worship, Chozhan Dharmavarman and lots of Rishis also
joined. After finishing all the poojas, he tried to take the
vimaanam along with him to Lanka, he was unable to take it and
he could not even move.
that time, Sri Aranganathan told since he had given boon (varam) to
River Cauvery and since he has to purify her, he has to be all
along the Cauvery River. And told that he will not be in a
position to move from there. But on hearing this, King
Vibeeshan became sad, for which Sri Aranganathan says that in spite
of not coming to Lanka, but he will be facing the direction of Lanka. This is the history explaination of
position, in which Sri Ranganathar is found in this sthalam is
one of the great thing that has to be explained.
In this Kshetram, Aranganathan is found inside the Aranga Vimaanam, Keeping 5 headed Aadhi seshan as the bed, his legs stretched along the direction of the sun's upcoming side (East) direction from where the moon in the evening rises and Lord Yaman, who is the demon king and cool breeze and wind which are said to be found from the South direction are seen by Aranganathan and he sees Lanka. Behind him, is Guberan (North Direction) and Selva Magal (Sri Lakshmi) are found. His right hand is kept under his head as a "Pillow" and the left hand is on his lap and it is pointed to his feet. This position explains to the world that all the Jeevathmas are finally getting terminated only in his feet.
now, if we stand at the top of Srirangam Temple Gopuram, we
can find that the Eyes of Arangan as still seeing the south
direction of Sri Lanka.
Pattarbiraan periyaalwar's daughter Sri Aandal, who sang
Thiruppaavai and called as "Soodi Kodutha Sudar Oli",
Kulasekara Alwar's daughter Cherar Vali, Nandha Chozhan's
daughter Kamalavalli and Delhi Badhusa's daughter Thullaka
Naachiyar all loved Sri Aranganathan and finally they got in
to Sri Aranganathan's Body.
Alwar built the temples outer walls and Nandhavan (Park) was
constructed by Thondar Adippodi Alwar.
this sthalam, Mettu Azhagiya singar (Narasimar) Sannadhi is
found and in front of it is found the 4 pillared mandapam (Nallu
Kaal Mandapam). In this mandapam, Kambar explained for the
first time, his great work "Kamba Ramayanam" and in
that "Iranya Vadhai Padalam" is also included in
that. (Iranyavadhan is the story about the killing of Iranyan
by Lord Narasimha). But on hearing the inclusion of it, all
the people around the Mandapam protested against it. At that
time, voices that belong to Lord Narasimha arised and it said
there should be no Protestation on that and He accepted the
inclusion of it. It is also one of the said stories here.
Nowhere is found a seperate sannadhi for Sri Dhanvanthri
(doctor for god and God of medicine) in this temple.
Alwar got his paramapadha mukthi (left his life and went to
seva, which is one of the type was created by Naadha muni in
this sthalam. It is the type by which Naalayira Divya
Pprabhandham is sung in a musical manner.
saynar, Thulasi dhasar (TulsiDasd), Maadhavar (Madhvachar) had also sung songs on Sri
Ranganathar. Manavaala Maamuni did Kaalatshebham here. (Kaalatshebham
means explaining some good things on the basis of God to
explaining about Sri Ranganathar and the temple, one more
special person has to explained and he is Sri Ramanujar.
Ramanujar says that Gnanam is Arangan and Gnana Teacher is
Arangan and the follower is also Arangan and the person who
follows it as also Arangan. And finally on the command given
by Arangan, he left the earth and terminated into Aranganathan.
Eventhough his soul was out from the world, his body was still
found inside a sannadhi. Inside it, he is sitting and his eyes
are opened and he giving his blessings to the world.
temple servers are applying a kind of Oil (thaylam) all along
his body to protect it from not being destroyed. Like this
same way, in Russia, Lenin's body and in Goa Saint Fransis
Saviours applying proper oils also protects bodies.
Ramanujar is given some names such as Udayavar Ramanujar,
Yathirajar, Emperumaanar, when he was in Melkottai, Karnataka
district, his bhakthas and relatives kept a statue like him to
remember him and because of his memory. Its name is "Thamar
then, he himself wanted to make a statue and ordered for it.
Finally after seeing it, he gave the approval for it and its
called as "Thaan Ugandha Thirumeni" and it is kept
in Sri Perumbhutoor. (Thaney Aana Thirumeni).
the devotees are said to wash their feet when going into the
Sannadhi of Sri Ranganathar, because the artistic works on Sri
Ramanujar are found in the floors here.
Desikar sung a song on Sri Ranganathars Paadhukai (feet) and
its called as "Paadhukasahesram". To appreciate
this, he was given the name as "Kavitharkkitha simhan"
by the God Himself and as "Sarvathantira Swathanthar"
Rangam is more special than Paarkadal and Vaikundam. It is
called as "Bhooloka Vaikundam". (Sri Mahavishnu's
abode in the earth).
