This Lord is the personification of compassion, and, whoever prays to him
with genuine devotion, he grants any thing and everything. This Bhaktavasankar takes
upon himself all the responsibilities and undergoes any privation in discharging the
arduous tasks of his children.
In particular, this august deity liberated many upasakas as evidenced by the
merging of one Zamorin in the Lord. That Zamorin prayed for Sayujyamukti; and it
was granted anon. The Lord has
soft corner for genuine devotees. He undergoes
tortures and even forsakes luxuries for their well being.
Like kith and kin, he observes mourning at the death of the true Bhaktas. There
is a practice prevalent even now, that whenever an elder Zamorin dies, it must
be reported to the Lord. He observes mourning with due rituals. Ah! what a
kinship between the adorer and adored! The grateful Bhaktas, remember him on
auspicious occasions and offer their mite. The Maharajas of Travancore being
devout Bhaktas, used to offer an elephant to the Lord, whenever a coronation for
a new king was made, or on their visit to the temple. Should not earthly royalty
pay obeisance to the sovereignty in the fittest manner? Moreover, in deserving
cases, the Lord initiates the devotees into the mysteries of bhakti, and at
times tenders jnanopadesa to the meritorious. Pleased with the highest spiritual
evolution of one Raghavendra, popularly known as Siva yogi, this Lord tendered
Jnanopadesa. A rarity! This divinity thus embodies several uniques that
establish his spectacular sovereignty and he is living up to the name of
Rajarajeswara given to him.
: The temple lies in Taliparamba, accessible by four wheelers from Cannanore,
