MANNARGUDI

Here Lord Vishnu gives darsan as Lakshmi Narayana. The leg goes to say that once an Asura by his fight with the Devas roused the anger of Vishnu who released his Chakra to kill him. The Asuraran to Saint Bhrigu's wife and begged refuge. The Sage's wife,
knowing the sin committed by the Asura, gave him shelter. Immediately the Chakra of Vishnu appeared before her and demanded the Asura to be brought.

The Sage's wife refused to do so as she could not bet the man who had surrendered to her and whom she had already promised to help. She said, "If you want, you may take away my first and then that of my refugee." The Chakra had
no option could not return without fulfilling the task and hence it cut the he of both and returned.

When Bhrigu saw that somebody had cut the head of his wife, he instantaneously cursed, "Whoever has abet and caused the crime will also suffer the same suffering that I am now to." Very soon he realised that his curse had acted upon Lord Vishnu He repented very much for the inadvertent curse. He prayed earnestly for redress of his sin of separating Vishnu and Lakshmi.
