surprises greet the devotee first on entering the Vadakkunathan Srikoil. The
Mahalinga obtained by Parasurama is installed here facing west, and due to
offering of constant ablisheka with cow's ghee, it is formed into a tall
10-foot-high mound. Though it is surrounded by burning oil lamps round the clock
and for centuries, the mound neither melted off; nor lost its shape, Is it not
Sivamahima? Yes, the Vadakkunathan's.eternal miracle! The temple's unique
blessing too. Moreover. one sees neither an insect, nor his nose is assailed by,
bad ardor. This centuries old ghee is in great, demand for making herbal
preparation to cure diseases. The ghee abhisheka being the Lord's favorite,
devotees offer it with due prayers quite often.
deep study of Parasuram the august person will be rejuvenating. elevating and
rewarding to every one, regardless of a wide variety of his limitations. He is
the creator and sustainer of kerala. No where his fervor for religious awakening
surfaced as it did at Tiru - siva- perur, the shortened soulless Anglicized form
of Trichur we are familiar with. It is here his ardor for
spiritual glorification of the land reached the Zenith and made him pole star
among the nation - builders. It is on account of his deep meditation, there
emerged the images of Mahavishnu, Sivalinga, and Sankaranarayana - a combined
from Siva and Vishnu. Though almost all temples of Kerala are bearing the
imprints of his Zeal for religious regeneration, this temple besides enshrining
those images is retaining many vestiges in the form of vedikas and rituals.
Without modification. It is his gift and the best one at it.
