TULAJAPUR - BHAVANI'S TEST OF RAMA'S MONOGAMY

Another miss-not spot here is the Ghat-Shila. It is associated with Sri Rama's life and hence visit-worthy. It appears that Mother Bhavani took fancy to test Sri Rama's monogamy eakapatnivratadiksha, while he was moving in this region, searching for Sita. So she approached him disguised as Sita. Sooner than seeing her, Sri Rams knelt before and asked for blessings. The crest-fallen Mother Bhavani owning defeat, played host to the brothers and promised help. Later, to mark the event and to perpetuate the memory of their visit, they were asked to install two Siva lingas here and, they are now worshipped as Rameswar linga and Lakshmaneswar linga. The spot of their meeting is deemed holy and held sacrosanct. Hence the craze on the part of this visitors, who miss not this spot however short the stay may be.

Hasn't her magnanimity of requesting Rama and, Lakshman to install two lings one each to perpetuate the event magnify her glorious position? She, as Maharastrians rightly feel and adore. is the laganmata deserving soulful adoration. Genuine bhakti is rewarded here out of proportion. As is the belief so is the tradition.

Location : The temple lies in Tulajapur, accessible by four wheelers from Sholapur, Maharastra.
