TALIPARAMBA TEMPLE - SOVEREIGNTY OF RAJARAJESWARA

Royalty is endowed with an aura of majesty, which magnifies its status, dignifies its status and signifies its high and exalted birth, and power. Certain amount of pomposity and authority are its inalienable accompaniments and they justify under ordinary conditions too. Extension of reverence anticipates some dazzle and and glow; for, they instill reverential awe in the beholders. Homage then naturally gets enkindled and flows down unconsciously. That is the cause of commanding respect, even though that royal personage is lily - livered, or born as grotesque museum exhibit piece. Even in these days of democracy, the royalty is receiving some sort of respect on its appearance. The Lord of Mount Kailas, a by - word for simplicity, is always seen in his simplest, serene form of a nomadic ascetic, semi naked body smeared all over the lalata and chest with white ashes, head with matted hair knotted on, hands holding kapala, trident, damaru and fire pot justifying, as it were, the role of eternal sentinel of burial ground, littered with burnt-out faggots and broken pots etc. But if once he assumes the form of Rajadhiraja, certainly he sees, rather bids to be adorned with dazzling diamond decked crown to match with shimnering silks draped from neck to feet. With these alone, he keeps up his due dignity and exercises his hold over the subjects. It is but natural that he wants his people to look upon him with reverential awe. The temple at Taliparamba, where the archamurti is conceived as Rajaddhiraja is establishing his supremacy with receiving worship normally due to imperial personage. See what else one observes here and, how he is perpetuating his rule over the adorers. The temple authorities or the originators of the traditions merit all veneration due.
