according to tradition. he keeps regular accounts of the visit of the theists
and tourists and submits them to his adorable father Mallikarjunaswamy everyday.
His scrupulous attention to every detail of the devotion shown by the visitors
is quite awesome and nothing escapes his strict impartial notice. The recorded
proof being exact and a hundred percent truth, that Kailasadhipathi confers
boons, why even curses also basing on the accounts submitted by this Sakshi
Ganapathy. The sincerity of adoration add nature of supplicant for grant of
boons, of course, are deciding factors, but proof is needed. And that is
supplied by this august Ganapathi. Hence the visitation by the pious to turn
more pious and set limits to piety. The priest, if requisitioned elaborately
deals with this aspect of this little shrine with big fame.
all the theists irrespective of the caste or sect marks they bear on their
soreheads are worshipping this most worshipful deity on their visit, more
out of dread of the august office of Ganapathy than his removing vighnas -
obstacles in their day to day routine work. Belief is escalating devolution and
devotion is taking them to feet of the Lord.
