VEDARANYAM

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
All the devotees passing by saw this and prostrated at the feet of Sambandar and Appar. On the particular date of the arrival of the two great sages an annual festival is performed to commemorate the incident.

Once the sister of the king of Madurai, Tilakavati, approached Tirujnana Sambandar in this temple to accompany her to Madurai to cure the chronic pain of her brother by his spiritual powers. The king of Madurai was a convert to Jainism and his sister was a devout Saivite. She thought that the spiritual powers of Sambandar would not only cure the disease but would also change the
mind of her brother from Jainism to Hinduism.

When Sambandar received this request, he wanted to start immediately, but his
friend Appar requested him to postpone it to next day as the date and time were not auspicious then. Sambandar wished to
proceed immediately. He replied to his friend that when God resides in one's heart, no day is inauspicious, and sang ten stanzas in praise of God. These 10 verses are inscribed on the temple walls.
