Jaya Jaya Sri Sudarsana !
Thirukkannapuram - Sri Neelamega Perumal Temple, Nagapattinam
the Temple & Location:
temple lies in the Tanjore district of TamilNadu. It is 4 miles from
Nannilam Railway station. From Maayuram we have to go to Thirupugalore
and from there by crossing a river Thirukannapuram is at 1 mile
distance. Bus facility is provided. But staying facility is not
place is one among the five Krishna Kshetrams:
Thirukannan Kavithalam and
and Thirukannapuram Lord Krishna is in a standing posture and at
Thirukovilur Lord Krishna gives "Ulakalantha sevai" (ie) he
stands up to a great height. Long back, this temple was near the
seashore. But now the sea has drifted back about 10 Kilometers.
Maharishi brought up Shakunthala, the daughter of Vishvamithra and
Shakunthala married king Dhushyanthan. But he forgot his love due to a
eveil spell. In order to unite Bhakunthala with her husband a fish ate
up her marriage ring and when the king saw the ring came running in
search of Shakunthala and their son Bharatha.
the fisherman was the sole reason of unison of Shakunthala and
Dhushyantha they are called as "Bharathavar".
order to remaind this, Neela mega perumal married the princes "Padmavathi"
of the fisherman crew. Utsavar sowriraaja perumal as in a posture of
seeking hands of yearly once a special pooja is conducted to this
perumal by all the fisherman of this area.
Neelamega perumal is treated in accordance with Varadharaja perumal of
Kanchi, he has given a very special dharsan (ie) he has showed himself
in person to Thandaka Maharishi who was formely a king and due to his
hard penance at Kanchi gained the status of Maharishi.
wanted to take away Ranganathar from SriRangam but as he was in
sleeping posture be couldn't do that. So he prayed god to show the
beauty of his walk to him. Accepting this god ordered Vibishana to
come to Thirukannapuram on a new moon day. And at this place,
Neelamega perumal showed Vibishana his beautiful walk.
there was a demon named vikataksham and as an answer to the prayer of
Maharishi's, Neelamega perumal destroyed this demon. Using his
chakaram. After that he still gives us dharshan with that powerful
chakaram which is ready to kill evil things.
behind the Name:
There's a small story regarding the name Sowriraajan. Once upon a
time, lots of flowers were sent to the temple for pooja from the
palace. But it didn't reach the god instead it was sold. The king came
to knew this and tried to know the truth by a surprise visit.
this fact, the Archagar Ranga Bhattar arranged for a garland quickly
and put it upon the god. When the King came to visit the temple, he
found a strand of hair in the garland and started enquiring about
that. Ranga Bhattar was shocked and pleaded the God to save him.
Bhattar lied the King that it was God's hair and Lord Neela Mega
perumal had a plait (Kudumi). But the King was not satisfied. When he
came again for inspection, Lord Neelamega perumal showed him off his
long plait. The king was convinced.
from that incident he's also called Sowrirajan (Sowri means hair).
"Om Namo Narayana" is the Thirumandiram (ie) sacred word for
Vaishnavities. Thirumangai Alwar was taught (ie) got upadesam of this
Mandiram from the Lord Neelamega perumal itself. This mandiram
consists of eight syllables and here he lives in each syllable forever
and henceforth this place is also called "Srimathasthakshara Maha
Manthira Siddhi Kshetram" (ie) the place were the Thirumandiram
has gives boundless power.
Once there was a great devotee named "Munnayatharayar". He
one night asked his wife to cook 'Pongal' (a rice dish) and took it to
the temple. But as it was very late the temple doors were closed.
Hence he stood outside of the temple and mentally submitted the pongal
to the Lord Neelamega perumal. As a honour of acceptence, bells in the
Moolavar Sannadhi started ringing and the whole campus was filled with
the fragrence of fresh ghee and pongal.
from that day, each night during the last pooja perumal takes pongal
which is named "Munitharam" pongal after "Munnayatharayar".
every Masi Magam, the lord god of this place goes to the seashore and
blesses all his devotees there.
Moolavar of this kshetram is Sri Neelamega Perumal. The Moolavar is
giving his seva in the standing posture facing east. Instead of Abhaya
Hastham he has Varadha Hastham similar to Kanchi Varadharaja perumal.
Also, he has the Prayoga Chakaram, similar to that of Ranganatha
perumal of SriRangam. Prathyaksham for Kanva Maharishi, Thandaka
Maharishi and Garudan.
Thayaar found in this sthalam is Kannapura Naayaki along with Periya
piraati, Sridevi, Aandal and Padmini Thaayar.
Utsavar of this sthalam is Utsavar Sowriraja perumal is in a pose of
seeking hands for marriage.
