THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

Glittering Image

Coming back to the central shrine, the image of the Lord of Ettumanur which faces west is represented in a two-foot high Siva linga installed on a high pedestal in the innermost recess of the sanctum sanctorum. To enable devotees to meditate on an image, a beautiful vigraha is placed in front of the Linga after the morning abhisheka. Adorned with flower garlands and decorated with diamond necklaces and gold ornaments the deity glitters and looks so attractive that one can hardly take off eyes from it.

Several yogis have prayed at this shrine and ha been saved. As Sri Sankara sang: "Punarapi Jananam Punarapi maranam...’’Born again and again, dying over and over again.... People continue to suffer vicissitudes of life. Only by his Grace can we cross over this ocean of repeated life and death.
