TIRUVOTTIYUR

Pattinathar wanted to undertake a Sthala Yatra (pilgrimage), but his aged mother was there and he felt it his duty to remain by her side in her old age. Days passed. Pattinathar stayed in a  Mandapam in Tiruvengadu and spent his days in meditation. He used to accept food from all that gave it to him willingly. He had a
sister in Kaveripattinam, who felt ashamed of her brother's action in having become a Sanyasin. She thought that her brother had
marred the good name of their family and hence decided to put an end to his life.

Once she invited Pattinathar to her house and offered him a poisoned cake. Pattinathar, who came to know about this by the grace of God, threw it on the roof, which immediately caught fire and burnt her house down to ashes. Pattinathar went back to his mandaparn, at Tiruvengadu.
