RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

Siva Yogi

Among those who contributed to the prosperity of the village and the temple, the foremost was Sivangal.  He was also known as Siva Yogi or Atyasrami though his real name was Raghavananda.  At the time of King Ravi Varma Kulasekhara (1299-1314) of Venad, himself a great scholar, Sivangal shone like a bright star in North Kerala.  He was born in Vallavu Village, about 3 km. to the north of Taliparamba temple and there is still a matham, called Siva Yogi matham, on the south side of the temple, where Siva Yogi lived.

He learnt the Vedas, Mimamsa, mantra and Tantra and took Sanyas at a very early age. Like Vilwamangalathu Swamiyar (Leelasukan), he was a great devotee of Siva. Hence he came to be known as Siva Yogi.  The Lord of Taliparamba was so pleased with him that He appeared before him and tendered Jnanopadesa.
