LORD SRIKANTESWARA OF NANJUNGUD

THE YAMADHARMARAJA'S EPISODE

In the Kaliyuga, at the instance of Sage Vedavyasa, this kshetra once again started demonstrating its apurva mahima. Many puranas inspired people to visit it for emancipation. When people visited this and offered prayers to Sri Kanteswara popularly known as Nanjundeswara, after taking bath in the confluence of Koundini and Kapila rivers, they were freed from sins and went to swarga direct. So Yamaloka was found deserted and Yamadharmaraja and his staff enjoyed eternal holiday,as it were. But this state of affair is quite against the nature of creation. When Yamadharmaraja was brooding over this, Narada advised him to meet Kalipurusha not enter into this kshetra, fear of punishment by Siva but he could establish his ;wav beyond for the limits of this punyadhama. So, Kalipurusha and Yamadharmaraja confined themselves to their dominions and discharges their duties. On account of this, Garalapura locally famous as Nanjangud has been relieving the devotees from physical ailments during lifetime and releasing them from the cycle of deaths and births after life. It is indeed a veritable Bhukailas, as the true devotees enjoy eternal communion with Lord Maheswar, if visited-Snana at the confluence and pana of the thirtha  ensures eternal bliss. This is neither exaggeration nor phantasy but the actual fact recorded in the Government records, where sincerity to the authenticity is paramount. Hence most trust worthy. One of the recent occurrences fortifies this belief and it is certified by a Muslim devotee who called Nanjundeswar as Hakim Nanjunda and overjoyed at the out come of sincere prayers to the presiding deity. Elaboration pays and drives home the truth to remain permanent in the minds and prepares the wavering minds to visit and enjoy the bliss showered abundantly by that All-merciful Bhagawan Nanjundeswara on devotees irrespective of man made distinctions.
