day a fruit from the branches fell on him, and he
was upset terribly. Then he complained to the Lord as to why he did not shower
blessings on him - cure his ailment. He. wailed bitterly due to pain. The Lord
heard; soon there was a miracle. He was cured. More than that, the tree stopped
bearing fruit. Why? How could a tree worry a true devotee? Should it
go-scot-free? No. Lord Krishna held the scales even. Isn't non-bearing a sin?
Yet, it is this tree that liberated that bhakta, hence during the temple
festival, the priest carrying the Utsavamurthi on his head dances round the tree
in token of obeisance; it is at this time devotees keep a ring on a leaf before
the spot of salvation and offer prayers, presuming that
Lord would lift them from difficulties as he did in the case of that bhakta.
that belief is giving immense relief to the devout bhaktas and they await that
ceremony taking place periodically.
this little shrine deemed a fragrant rose among Kerala temples is scattering its
sweet scent across our punya Bharat and emancipating the theists and affording
delight to the non-believers with such bizarre beliefs and odd traditions. A
visit lifts and pays.
: The temple lies in Trichambaram accessible by bus from Badagara, Kerala.
