LORD MAHABALESWAR OF GOKARNAM

Brahma caused some commotion in the stomach of Ravana, carrying the Atmalinga. It developed a sensation forcing him to answer calls of nature there on the way. At once, as a matter of fact. As he was holding the sacred linga in his two hands, he needed someone's assistance for a while. When looked round, he found a chubby-cheeked and pot- bellied, pigmy - statured boy playing on flute in gay abandon encircled by cows, drinking in of that ganamrit with their broad ears. Reaching, he requested him to extend a little help of holding the linga for a short while till he returned answering the calls of nature. Waiting for that opportunity alone, but as advised, showed unwillingness on the ground that his slender hands could not bear such a heavy object. Ravana pleaded and convinced that he could return in seconds and also requested not to put it on ground on any account. He nodded.

As planned, before Ravana turning his back and walked a few yards, Vinayaka bawled out, "It is getting heavier, I can't hold it, take it, come now". Poor Ravana doubled up, but before reaching the spot, Vinayaka put it on the ground.
