KARAIKAL

To this Siva replied: "She that cometh is the Mother devoted to my praises, and this mighty demon-form she has obtained by her prayers." When she drew near, Siva
addressed her with the words of love calling her by the name of Mother (Ammayar) which she forever bears. As soon as she heard the word she fell at his feet worshipping and ejaculating "Father!"

Siva then said to her: "What boon dost thou ask of me?" She worshipped Him and replied: "Lord, to me, your slave, give love which is undying and infinite blessedness. I would fain be born on earth no more; but if I must be so born grant me at least that I may never, in any form, at any time, forget Thee, my God; and when thou dost perform thy sacred mystic dance, beneath thy feet in rapture may I stand and sing thy praise."

God replied: "In Alangadu, thou shalt see my dance and with rapture thou shalt sing." Then, the sacred Mother of Karaikal returned, measuring the distance still on her head, to holy Alangadu where she beheld her God's sacred dance and sang her renowned lyrics in His praise.
