UNCOOKED RICE NAIVADYAM

Sorcerers and men of wisdom attributing this to Bhagawathi's whimsicality, though not done with deep motive of causing harm or destruction, made a wooden cage and imprisoned her with chants and relevant rites. Poor Bhagawati found herself bound mercilessly, stopped her night roaming. People heaved long sighs and enjoyed deep sleep. This did not deter her from conferring boons on the devotees, nor did she avenge the cause. She never let her adorers in grief, she rather turned more benign and was coming to the rescue of the devotees at all times, even without orally or mentally invoking her help. She looked after her devotees like the eye lashes in screening the eye from any danger. Faith reposed in her is fulfilling the desires of the believers. She developed passion for saving the duhkarthis even unsummoned. '

The instance cited reveals, how she succoured help to her adorers. And this further establishes the fact she does not expect anything nor delight a! the misery of the believers. This Bhagawati was ardently worshipped by artists and royal families, prior to this incident and went by the name of Vaageeswari - the Patron Deity of Learning and was held in high esteem.

Location : The temple lies in Tiruvangad accessible by four wheelers from Tellichery, Kerala.
