LORD OF VAIKOM

Two Tantris

The Tantriship (priest well-versed in Tantras science and art of temple worship) at Vaikom was originally from Menattu illam, near Udayanapuram. 500 years ago when the temple caught fire the Me Tantri at great personal risk went into the sanctum protected the linga from the enveloping flames. I process he became unconscious. However when he to he gave up the Tantriship.

Ono Mekkattu Nambudiri succeeded him. During his time a strange episode occurred. There was no male member left in the Puthusseri families who were the traditional drummers at the temple. There was only a pregnant woman who found herself in a quandary. The annual festival had already begun during which utsavabali or offering of oblations to spirits is an important ritual.

Dumming is part of the ceremony which is mostly action and gestures in tune with certain talas.
