LORD HOYALESWARA OF HALEBIDU

THE EPISODE OF SALA

There existed many Parnasalas and gurukulas then. And in one of them once Sudattamuni, a Jain ascetic of great spiritual fame was living. And teaching too. There was Sala, a pupil in teens noted for his courage and compassion. One day, all on a sudden, a tiger attacked the guru, who cried 'Hoy Sala' which means 'Sala Strike'. Hearing it, Sala came forward and killed it with a mere bamboo stick available at that moment. By his spontaneous action and daredevilry the guru was saved to the amazement of all. Later, he emerged as a man of superb physique and superior psyche, and founded a small principality, which developed into a big kingdom extending from South Arcot to Coorg and from Sholapur to Tanjavur covering the present Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharastra states during its heyday. And it adopted the emblem of a youth righting a leogriff, representing Sala saving Sudattamuni by killing the Sardula, who blessed Sala anon to blossoming into a King of Kings.
