LORD MAHABALESWAR OF GOKARNAM

Ravana flew into anger and gave a blow on the head of Vinayaka with his heavy club. Though it caused pain and left a mark on his head, the devakarya was accomplished and ensured jagatkalyana. He was delighted, and the employee and employer danced in ecstatic joy as it were, when Ravana was lost in his attempt to raise it from the ground. He used his Herculean strength but could not move it; assumed the stature of Colossus and shook it, but failed and employed his asura tactics, but it did not stir. As he struggled like Samson, with strength and perseverance, it slowly stretched itself upwards developing in breadth and ending with a pointed code. The lingakara changed itself Gokarnakara - narrow at the hale broad in the middle and cone like at the tip. All his efforts when ended, he despaired and prayed to the Lord.

Brahma, Maheswar and other gods descending consoled him collectively. Brahma then said that the Atmalingam can be installed here itself and Ravana's mother can offer prayers after due consecretion.
