TULAJAPUR - MOTHER BHAVANI'S UNUSUAL HUNGER

The Goddess Tuiajabhavani, like her counterpart Sri Krishna of Trichanbaram temple demands breakfast first soon after opening the temple doors. Though the sodasopachara puja offered every day to her includes in the list Naivedvam as lath upachara, she tolerates not delay unduly for hours. She ordained that breakfast must be offered even without dantha dhavana, snana etc. The temple is implementing this bidding with unusual ' fervor. Though the exact date can not be furnished with any certainty, it is being followed with tacit approval. Ironical it appears that Mother Bhavani punishes not the breakers of good old injunction of offering Naiveidyam as the 14th upachara in the routine sixteen prayer services called sodashopachara puja. Very few temples are practicing this bizarre tradition, and for staunch' orthodox theists. it gives a perk as it is against the normally accustomed way, of life. When probed. they  event not, but hail it as a commendable tradition deserving emulation, since the archamrti is quite unique in several awesome practices. She is conceived .as the Rudraswarupini first and last and so justifies the 'role she is playing since its installation in the dirt' past. Her ravenous hunger due to strenuous work she has been doing cares not by-passing the set practice handed town from generation to generation. Now read far full picture.
