LORD RANGANATHA OF SRIRANGAPATTANA

The humanist sage Sayana moved by the ghastly sights did penance on the Brahmagiri mountain, propitiating Lord Maheswar. The Lord descended and asked him the purpose of his penance. The Sage said that what all he wanted was instant rain to revive the barren land and a river to flow prenially with water acting more than nectar to land and its people. Highly elated, Lord Maheswar said 'Thadastu' and anon he bade Ganges to flow in this land making greenary greet the eyes permanently and eternal spring delight the animate and inanimate worlds. At once, the Ganges taking its birth at a holy spot called Talakaveri started flowing eternally under a new name - Cauvery. The land enjoyed heavenly bliss once again and people reaped peace and treasured up prosperity to their hearts' content. Lord Maheswar too enchanted by the sight of the bounteous Nature made Brahmagiri his permanent dwelling place and lived with the pramadaganas thenceforward.
