TIRUVOTTIYUR

When Pattinathar came to Tiruvidai - marudur, he met his disciple Bhadragiri there. After some time Bhadragiri passed away. Then an invisible voice was heard. Pattinathar was directed to go to Tiru - vottiyur where he would get salvation. He again came to Tiruvengadu. There he saw one of his ex-servants and his wife being imprisoned by the King. He arranged for their release. He then visited Shiyali, Chidambaram, Tiruvekambaram,Kalahasti, Tiruvalangadu and other places, and at last came to Tiruvottiyur. At Tiruvottiyur he worshipped Lord Siva and composed many songs. He used to amuse urchins by performing some miracles. He would get Into a pit in one place anct come out of the earth in another place.

This he used to do frequently, One day he asked some buys to place over him a big vessel covering his entire body. The boys expected that he would come out of the earth as usual at some other place. As Pattinathar did not come back for a long time, the boys removed the vessel to see whether the Sage was still there. The Sage was not there, but in his place they found a Siva Lingam. Thus Pattinathar got trans - formed into a Lingam and merged with God. He is very well known in Tamilnad as a great saint. A temple has been constructed over the Lingam atTiruvottiyur, a suburb of Madras City.
