TIRUVOTTIYUR

Immediately Tiruvengadar fell at his feet, and stood before him with his head bowed down. The Brahmin then gave him a small casket, saying that a Brahmin who appeared in his dream gave it to him and that it contained a Siva Lingam. He also offered to teach Tiruvengadar what the latter wanted to learn. As soon as Tiruvengadar touched the casket, the lid automatically opened and a beautifully shining Siva Lingam was found inside. An idol of Vinayaka was also there. Tiruvengadar stayed at Tiruvengadu itself and conducted Siva Pooja daily as he had learned from his guru.

Tiruvengadar was very poor and found it difficult to continue his Siva Pooja. Now Lord Siva appeared to him one day in his dream and asked him to go to his place Kaveripattinam where he would get enough wealth to continue his worship. Tiruvengadar did accordingly and lived a peaceful and contented life.
