I am sending this appeal so that divine brothers and sisters will respond to
complete this unique task.
You all must have heard about Annadhana sivan of Thepperumalnallur, which is
near Tirunageswaram railway station (near to Uppliappan koil/Thirunageswaram
Rahu stalam etc) on the Kumbakonam-Mayavaram railways - next station to
Kumbakonam.Annadhana Sivan used to provide food free of cost to lakhs of
devotees who thronged Mahamakam festival in Kumbakonam, without a single pie
in his hand.
There is a Siva temple in this village, which is nearly 300 years old and in
a highly dilapidated condition. There is no water even to do daily
abhisekham and I have already taken steps to instal a overhead tank, sink a
bore well, provide a fan, to provide electric lighting, the best I can do
with my own funds and friends.
The temple requires extensive repairs, including providing doors and I have
plans to do the Kumbabishekam God willing with the help of every one.The
temple also requires vahanams, all the puja vessels and more particularly to
pay the two archakas who are indeed most learned and dutiful. They receive a
paltry Rs.200/- per month and there are no pujas done unless some devotee
comes for prayer and blessings, which provide them a very small solatium for
their services for their daily bread.
This temple has a siva lingam with a Maradaga head within the lingam and
everyday sun falls on this avidayar. Further several people have seen a
cobra going inside the temple, winding it round the linga and the bhairavar
statue. We have collected two shedded skin of the cobra also. This is the
only temple in the world where archana is done with rudraksha and all the
purusharthas are granted to the devotees.There is also a rudraksha kavacha
on the sivalingam. The swamis need dress, jewelry etc., which I hope to
gether by stages.
It is said that once this temple used to feed about 8000 people daily but
now there is none to feed even one. Hence I would like to revive the glory
of this temple by providing food to everyone free of cost, if that boon is
granted by the Divine Mother. Therefore doing annadhanam as offering to
this temple, will benefit the devotees. Childless couples have been blessed
too with a divine child.
Such is the glory and power of this temple, which needs renovation.
The swami is called Viswanathar and is the total energy of the 12
Jothirlingas in India. Ambal is called vedanta nayaki a very nice
idol.Recently i went to this temple, did puja and installed crystal maha
meru free of cost to build up the divine energy.
If you know people who belong to the Thepperumalnallur village, please
request them to contact me and offer their help, guidance and support in
renovating this temple. irrespective of this most honourable members can
also consider donating their mite from funds to materials, so that this
temple attains its glory.
Pracheena bhavatha sampradaya natakams were conducted here, much before
those done in Melatur. The village has also a siva temple called varadaraja
swami temple and is called "Thenkanchi" ,meaning the south kanchipuram.
There is a very famous kaliamman temple with sapta matas and it is said that
after Narasimha killed Hiranyakachipu, Sarabha came here and installed
himself in Thirubhuvanam, which is very near the village.
I have taken photographs of the temple and I am planning to publish the same
