Thirukkudanthai - Sri SaarngapaaNi Perumal Temple, Kumbakonam
the Temple & Location:
temple lies in the Tanjore district of Tamil Nadu. It's about
1 1/2 miles away from Kumbakkonam railway station. Which is on
the chennai - Thanjore main line. Bus facility and staying
facilities are ample.
it was time for the destruction of this world a huge pralaya
came up. In order to save the vedha's Amirtham and tools
necessary to create lives on earth, lord Bhrama collected all
these things and put them in a mud pot and kept the pot safety
on the top of the Mountain Meru.
kalam (ie) the period of non stop heavy rain came and the pot
of bhrama was washed away by the flood. In due course moving
in the south direction it came to halt at a particular place.
Then for the wish of all devar's (ie) heavenly people Lord
Shiva broke the pot with an arrow. Immediately Amudham (ie)
the liquit given eternity flowed from the pot and formed two
tanks. One is known as Maha maga kulam and the othr Potramarai
kulam. The remains of the pot and Amudham joined together to
form "Lord Kumbeswarar". In the name of the broken
pot (ie) Kumbam that place was clled Kumbakkonam or simply
they couldn't resolve the matter they sent "Brighu
Maharishi" to test the Trinities and finally to select
the best member. So, Brighu Maharishi went to Siva logam (ie)
the place of Shiva and Bhramalogam (ie) place of Bhrama and
was dishonoured by them. So angrily he went at last to
Vishuloga (ie) the the place of Maha Vishnu.
too he wasn't honoured properly. So he got very angry and
kicked Maha Vishnu's heart where Godess Mahalakshmi lives. But
in turn Mahavishnu took the feet which kicked him and said
"Oh! rishi you have kicked me, but I do not bother about
that but your feet may ache due to this so let me soothe
it." Saying so he tactfully took away the third eye of
Brighu Maharishi which was conceled under his toe.
to this Brighu Maharishi regained his temper and also lost his
eye of Pride.
soon as he lost his pride he became very humble and pleaded
Mahavishnu to forgive him. From this the Lord God has showed
us that unless we lose our pride and become humble. What ever
position we may hold, that would never fetch God towards us.
as Bhrigu Maharishi gave a kick where she lived, Mahalakshmi
gave a kick where she lived, Mahalakshmi got annoyed and left
the scene. She came to the earth and started to live at
Mahalakshmi the Godess of Money Lord Narayana was worried a
lot and came to earth in search of his beloved wife. But as he
couldn't find he, he transformed himself into Lord Srinivasa
and married Godess Padmavathi. As Mahalakshmi left him he was
not having enough money for marriage so he borrowed some money
from Lord Khubera. Once again he was left alone for
Padmavathidevi had a dispute with Lord Srinivasa and left
Thirupati. By now, Mahalakshmi who was staying at Kollapuri
came to know the news of Lord Srinivasa's marriage from
Naradha. She became very angry and started to search Lord
Srinivasa who had fled to Abyss (ie) paathala loga in
Kumbakkonam, to escape from Mahalakshmi's angry.
Mahalakshmi searched Lord Srinivasa every where but her effort
gave her no fruits. So she became a small child and crawled as
BalaKomalavalli in the Potramarai Kulam.
Maharishi who kicked Mahalakshmi felt very much for his action
and hence took rebirth as Hema Maharishi. He saw
Balukomalavalli and started to bring her up as his own
daughter. When it was time for Komalavalli's marriage, Hema
Maharishi performed a very hard penance and pleaded Mahavishnu
to accept Mahalakshmi. Lord Mahavishnu granted his wish. On a
Mahashankaranthi day Lord Mahavishnu emerged out from Vaideha
Vimanam contained in the pranava vimana of Sri Rangam and came
in a huge chariot and married Komalavalli Thaayar.
the Thayaar Komalavalli was angry with Lord Srinivasa who has
a standing posture to soothe her anger Lord Mahavishnu now
adapted the sleeping posture of Ranganatha of Sri Rangam and
became SaarngapaaNi in Kumbakonam.
Shargam is the name of the bow of Sri Rama, one of the ten
Avathar's of Sri Mahavishnu. Sri Rama is very famous for his
one man - one wife format of life. So on order to give
assurence of Security for his wife Komalavalli Lord Mahavishnu
has adapted the shargam in the name of Sri Ramam and the
posture of Ranganatha so as to be called as "SaarngapaaNi".
is a "Paadhala Srinivasar" in this temple which
remainds as the above tale.
Mahalakshmi repented for her mistake and from then onwards she
took a vow that she would never leave her dear husband. Hence
even today she never leaves out of her chamber. So only she is
called as "Padhi Thanda Patni".
place is treated equivalent with Thirupati, SriRangam, Kaattu
Mannar Kovil, Alwar Thirunagari, Thruvellarai, Thiruvekka,
Thiru Kandiyur, ThiruKarambanoor, Thiruputkuzhi and
Thirupullamboothamkudi. This place is treated as the place
which explains the meaning of Paramathma Thathuvam.
following three incidents:
magical pot of Bhrama - Lord shiva who broke the neck of the
pot - Lord Ranganatha who as Aaraamudhan also named SaarngapaaNi's marriage with Komalavalli represents the power
of the trinity Bhrama, Vishnu and Sivan at a single place like
the I which happend at Karambanoor and Kandiyur. Even then,
this place is called as Bhaskara Shetram only.
combination of some hamsam's (ie) parts of Lord Shivan and
Lord Vishnu is named as Lord Bhaskara. He has two heads and
four hands. Two hands are used by him to pray Lord Shiva
whereas the other two hands contain the lotus which represents
Godess Mahalakshmi. Her body is of red colour, the colour of
Lord Shivan and his ornaments are all of blue colour
the powers of lord Shiva and Vishnu has combined here this
place is called as Bhaskara shethram. This place paves a way
to the unison of Shaiveties and Vaishnaveties.
and Divya Prabantham:
worked in the temple and one day he came to hear II paasurams
which had "Aara Amudhey" as its beginning. The verse
was so pure, gentle and devotional that Naadamunigal was
completely take aback by it. He asked the two men about the
verse and enquired them regarding the last line which hinted
that these II paasurams or verses were among the other 1000
verses. But the men who sand said they were Unaware about the
Naadamunigal wanted to find the rest of 1000 Paasurams. But he
couldnt get any clues from the men and so he was very much
worried. Suddenly he remembered the first line which began
with the word "Aara Amudhe" so quickly he went to
the SaarngapaaNi temple in Kudanthai and started to pray
hardly. Immediately a flash ran in his mind the last line of
the II Paasurams said that it was written by Sadagopan of
Thirukurukur (ie, "Kurukur Sadagopan Kuralin Maliya sonna
thanked God for having
revealed to him the means to get the other pAsurams from
AzhwAr tirunagari and headed straightly to Thirunagari. There he came to know about the history of
Nammalwar and his excellent diciple "Madhurakavi alwar"
who treated Nammalwar as his God. Then he met
Pharangusasadhasar who came in the way Madhurakavialwar who
gave him II Paasurams (Starting with Kanninum Siruthambu...)
sung by his guru. The verse was written by Madhurakavialwar in
praise of his beloved guru Nammalwar.
was very happy and he went to the temple in Alwar Thirunagari
(Thirukurukur) and sat in front of the Tamarind tree under
which Nammalwar was sitting in his time.
started to chant the II Paasurams of Madhurakavialwar without
stopping for 12,000 times. Nammalwar appeared before
Naadhamunigal and started to teach him all the 4000 paasurams
and with a written copy of Dhivya prabantham. Naadhamunigal
returned to Kaatu Mannar kovil Secessfully. Srimadh
Naadhamunigal then divided the prabantha paasurams into 4
group each containing almost 1000 paasurams.
Aaraamudha perumal of this Thirukkudanthai - Naatha munigal
from Kaattu mannar kovil Nammalwar of Alwar Thirunagari all
worked together to the rebirth of prabantham. Also the way in
which Aaramudhan came to this place, bears a relation to
Thirupathi and Sri Rangam. This temple Karbagraham (or)
Moolavar sannathi has two entries one named Uthrayana vaasal
and the other Dakshinayana Vaasal, both the terms deputing the
Sun's orbit. Hence this place is also treated incoherence with
As Aaraamudhans appearence has a relation to the myths of the trinity Bhrama, vishnu Sivan this place can be treated inaccordance to Kadhambanoor and Kandiyur.
upon a time Thirumazhisai Alwar came to have a dharsan of
Aaraavamudha perumal. He was very much impressed by his beauty
and wanted to have a chat with him. So he prayed the Lord and
after some times, the Lord Wanted to answer his prayer and
hence he lifted his head from the sleeping posture and started
to get up. But, Alwar didnt wanted to disturb his sleep and
hence he requested perumal not to get up and to remain in the
same posture so as to bless each devotee visiting him and to
treat each one of them as Thirumazhisaialwar. The post of Aara
Amudhan is called as Uthra Sayanam and he is thus called as
As the Lord God accepted his devotees wish as he did in Kanchipuram, this place is coherent to Thiruvekka of Kanchipuram.
there lived a man named Narayaswamy in Thirukudanthai. He was
very rich but had no children. So at one stage he devoted all
his money and wealth to the Aara Amudhan's temple. When his
neghbours asked him to adopt a son to render rites and rituals
after his death,
said them that, he did not cared that and also said them that
after his death, Lord Aaraavamudhan would come in person to
perform his rites. So happened after his death, a young man
came from nowhere and performed his last rites.
now on certain day of the year, all the things necessary for
doing rites and rituals are kept in the Aaraamudhans sannadhi
and the temple is closed, so that Aaraamudha perumal would
performing the rituals for Narayanaswamy's death.
coherates to the incident of Sri Rama performing the rites of
the dead Jadayu at Thiruputkuzhi and Thirupullam boothamkudi
where he took rest after finishing the rites.
a distance of 3 miles south from this place there is Nadnipura
Vinnagara divya desa temple, then to the east are
Thirunageswaram, Uppliappan kovil then at 6 miles south there
is Naachiyar Kovil in Thirunarayur from there at 3 miles
distance there is Thirucherai and after that is
Thiruvellainkudi. So totally there are six divya desams to be
Moolavar of this temple is Sri SaarngapaaNi. Aara Amudhan,
Abayaryaapthamiruthan and Utthanasayi are the other names of
Moolavar. Prathyaksham for Hema Maharishi. Moolavar is in
Udhyoga sayana posture (ie) he appears as though is getting up
from sleeping position.
Also called as "Padi Thanda Pathini" ie thayaar
would never (leave out) or leave away from her chamber. She
has her own seperate sannadhi in this temple.
