LORD OF VAIKOM

Sahasrakalasam and Sandhya Vela

It is well known that Siva is abhishekapriya-lover ablutions. Parashurama, during his worship of the I here, is believed to have bathed the deity with Sahasrakalasam or a thousand pots of holy water according Vedic rites. Now this is a regular form of offering ranging from ordinary people to the Prince of Travancore.

It is a costly offering though, the expenses amounting to nearly Rs. 10,000/-. It is a ten-day function, each day an offering of 101 Kalasam or pots of holy water being made-100 pots of silver and one of gold at do centre--all filled with water and surcharged with mantras recited by learned Brahmins seated on the Mukhamantapam. These are emptied on the deity, the golden pot- Brahmakalasam-being the last one. There are grand feasts at noon on all the ton days.
