Thiru Vattaaru - Sri Aadhikesava Perumal Temple
the Temple & Location:
This sthalam is situated next to Thoduvetti in Kerala. We can also reach this sthalam by getting down in Thoduvetti while traveling in Bus which starts from Trivandrum to Naagar Koil. After getting down in Thoduvettin, we have to catch another bus and travel around 6 miles to reach this sthalam. There is no lodgying facility.
1. The specialty about this sthalam is, the thaayar is Maragadhavalli Naachiyaar. The colour that is related to periya piratti is yellow mixed with Red colour. But, Maragadham (Green clour) is related to Vaishnavi Devi. Because of this, this sthala thaayar is said to have the power of Vaishnavi Devi.
2. Another specialty of this sthalam is the way in which the perumal is positioned. He is found in such a way that everyday he gives his seva to Chandiran, the moon god.
3. This place is also called as "Aadhi Dhamasthalam, Dakshina Vaikundam, Srirangam of Chera Nadu and Parasurama Sthalam".
This sthala perumal, Aadhikesavapperumal is found in the same thirukkolam (Sayana thirukkolam) as found in Thiruvananthapura sthala perumal. Anantha padmanabhaswamy. He is also found along 3 Entry points known asVaasals which represent the evolution (birth), leading of life and final stage, the death. But, the only difference in Thiruvananthapura perumal is found in Bhujanga Sayana kolam facing East direction, but this sthala perumal is found in the same Bhujanga sayana thirukkolam but facing west.
Thiruvananthapura Padmanabhaperumal gave his prathyaksham for Chandiran, the moon god, like the same way, this sthala perumal, Aadhikesavaperumal gave his prathyaksham for Chandiran, the moon god.
The east direction, which is said to be the moon setting direction is the direction faced by Padmanabha perumal (Thiruvanandhapuram), but this sthala perumal, Aadhikesava perumal (Thiruvaattaaru) is facing along the western direction, which is said to be the rising direction of moon, is said to be special side.
In Thiruvananthapuram, the perumal has a big structured body, but in Thiruvaattaary, the perumal is found in Siriya thirumeni (Small in structure) in Kidantha kolam. As a result, the vimaanam Ashtaakshara vimaanam is also small in size.
The specialty about this sthalam is, the thaayar is Maragadhavalli Naachiyaar. The colour that is related to periya piratti is yellow mixed with Red colour. But, Maragadham (Green clour) is related to Vaishnavi Devi. Because of this, this sthala thaayar is said to have the power of Vaishnavi Devi.
Another specialty of this sthalam is the way in which the perumal is positioned. He is found in such a way that everyday he gives his seva to Chandiran, the moon god. During the setting of sun, the rays of the sun is falling on the Moolavar's face as though it says that it will leave today and come tomorrow. After the sun sets, the moon appears (or) rises from the same direction where the sun sets and first sees the Moolavar and get his dharshan. This is one of the specialty of this sthalam (i.e.) the perumal's position.
The unity of Saivam and Sri Vaishnavam is best explained by Thiruvananthapura Padmanabhaperumal. Likewise this Thiruvaattaaru Aadhikesava perumal also explains how people should follow the God and explains the unity of Saivam and Vaishnavam.
Sriman Narayanan has a special amsam, the Kesavaartham which explains that Narayanan did a strong tapas and merged into the body of Sivaperumaan and this amsam explains the union of Vaishnavam and Saivam. So, Kesava means Narayana along with Shiva.
Once, there lived an Demon (asuran) by named "Kesi", who gave lots of problem to humanity. This sthala perumal fought with Kesi and finally he defeated him and slept on his body. Aasoori, wife of Kesi worshipped Ganga devi and asked her to save his husband from the perumal. Hearing this request, Ganga along with Tamirabharani river merged together and ran fast towards the perumal who is found on Kesi. On seeing the rivers, the perumal ordered Bhooma devi to make the place to some height. Being raised, both the rivers could not flood the place, but they flow around the perumal as if they worshipped him. But at the same time, when both the rivers touched the body of Kesi, he got purified and got Mukthi. Because of this, the perumal is called as "Aadhi Kesava Perumal". In spite of being an asuran, Kesi was able to hug the body of perumal while fighting and it itself inplies that he will be given Mukthi done the perumal.
Theerthavaari, is one of the grand utsavam done in this sthalam.
Pushpanjali is yet another important utsavam done in this temple where lots of flowers are offered to the Perumal.
Moolavar of this sthalam is Sri Aadhikesava Perumal. He is in Kidantha
Thirukkolam in Bhujanga sayanam facing along western direction.
Prathyaksham for Chandiran, the Moon God.
The Thaayar of this sthalam is Maragadhavalli Naachiyaar.
