VEDARANYAM

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
After the deluge, the four Vedas accompanied by the Puranas, Agamas, Smritis and Sastras were worshipping the linga after bathing in the sacred waters of the Vedamrita, a tank made out by them for the purpose to the north of the linga, and were performing an austere penance. Siva appeared before them. The Vedas complained to the Lord that they had all lost their strength and power, having been handled and chanted by sinners, and entreated the Lord to bless them to live there itself as trees, plants, creepers and shrubs, unnoticed by others.

They also expressed a desire that the Satyavathi River should henceforth be called as Vedanadi and that the sea there should be termed as Vedateertha as, at that time, a major portion of the river Satyavathi had merged into the sea, and that the locality should be called Vedaranyam, and also that the tank made by themselves should be known as Vedamrita.

The Vedas also desired that, because the Lord had given them darsan on that date, a new-moon day, before sunrise, anybody who bathed in the holy waters of the Vedamrita, Vedateertha, and Manikarnika on such dates should be given salvation. The Lord of the Universe granted their requests and disappeared. That is how this place came to be called Vedaranyam.
