DRAKSHARAMA

Dakshaprajapathi's pride increased all the more by this visit of Dakshayani, since he thought that his fame was so great that the consort of Lord Siva himself had to attend it, although uninvited. Since his Yagna was such a famous one. In his extreme pride, he did not receive his own daughter Dakshayani properly, and did not give her the proper respects. Dakshayani's self-respect was thus wounded, and not being able to bear with equanimity and calmness, the insults offered not only to her, but also to her supreme Lord, she plunged into the fire, and thereby ended her life.

Lord Siva, when he heard the news, was extremely furious and began to sweat profusely. Out of the sweat, was born Veerabhadra, who killedDrakshaprajapathi, and thus avenged the insult to Lord Siva. Draksharama or the modern Draksharama, is said to be the seat of this famous Yagna of Drakshaprajapathi, and in memory of it, even today orthodox Brahmins do not perform any Yagna or such ceremonies, within the premises of Draksharama.
