KALADI - THE BIRTH PLACE OF ADI SANKARA

A Good Son

Sankara was born in A.D. 788 of a devout, Nambudiri couple-Sivaguru and Aryamba. They were disconsolate because they had no issue. They repaired to the famous Siva (Vadakkunnathan) temple at Tirchur and worshipped the Lord with all their heart. The Lord appeared before them in am dream and wanted to know their desire. The couple prayed for a son. The asked: "Do you want a short-lived good son or simpleton with a long life?" They chose the former and returned home to live a life of devotion and dedication.
