TIRUVOTTIYUR

One day, some thieves stole some costly ornaments and articles from the palace and came to the temple of Vinayaka where Pattinathar was doing penance, to share the booty among themselves. They wanted to present something to Vinayaka. They took out one pearl necklace and placed it on the neck of Pattinathar
mistaking him for Vinayaka. Pattinathar knew nothing about these incidents, as he was in deep meditation.

Next morning, Pattinathar was arrested by the soldier-, and brought before the King with the pearl necklace. Poor Pattinathar was not able to offer any explanation before the King. Thereupon the King came to the conclusion that he was the culprit and ordered that the man should be sent to the gallows. When Pattinathar was about to be hanged, he prayed to Lord Siva and sang a song. Immediately the gallows caught fire and were burnt to ashes. When the King came to know about this, he was very much afraid, fell at the feet of the Sage and begged him to pardon him. The King soon received Jnanopadesa from Pattinathar and became a saint.
