LORD MAHABALESWAR OF GOKARNAM

Please grant it". Elated at his ardour, that Bhatavasankar drew out from his soul and handed it over to him. With inexplicable joy wreathing his face he received it, and when heard from the Lord, "Take it home as you desire, but do not put it down on the earth anywhere on your way, if done it can never be lifted tried however much you like. It will shower all boons on anyone and by regular soulful worship one can tide over all the worldly worries. Be gone".

Overjoyed Ravana offering thanks for the priceless boon showered, started his journey homewards. There sprouted a ripple in the mind of Brahma then and perturbed his tranquility a little. Sure the Atmalinga, if enshrined in the Lankarajya, it becomes another Kailas and desecration would soon envelope, giving place to irreverence; when the glory of Lord Siva would diminish, which is undesirable and omnious. So he decided to see that the Sivalinga confine to Bharat varsha alone through some strategy. He confided to Vinayaka his strategy and solicited him to act as a cow-herd and pretend to help Ravana when his help was sought.
