LORD SRIKANTESWARA OF NANJUNGUD

THE HALAHALAM EPISODE

The modern Najangud, famous as Galapuri in legends has a glorious past and begins with the churning of Ksheerasagara the milky ocean for getting nectar that could free devas from danavas, subjecting them to unending hardships and humiliating experiences. With the hearty cooperation of Lord Mahavishnu both the parties put through the plan, and as it went on, there came out from the milky ocean Lakshmi, Uchchaisrava, Iravatha Kamadhenu, Kalpavriksha etc. One after other. And then emerged halahala - the dreadful poison. Dread at its sudden appearance and its devastating effects, all tried to take to heels. After all, life present is sweeter than the life sweetest that may likely come upon later. How would they escape? Where would they take shelter? Finding the total destruction ready to embrace both the races and engulf the world, Lord Maheswar, the Omni- benevolent, unmindful of its implacable effect, volunteered to swallow it. SQ he collected it into the cup of his hands and drank.
