MOTHER SARADA OF SRINGERI

Poor Rishyasringa who know not any difference between men and woman was easily gulled by the Jackal damsel, mistaking her for a munikumar. As soon as he stepped on the soil of Angas, there was heavy down pour to the utter amazement of people and Romapada. The Mother Earth heaved a sigh of relief. The country was again in the bloom of prosperity. In token of gratitude Romapada gave his adopted daughter Santha in marriage to him.

This Santha was the affectionate daughter of Rajadhiraja Dasarata, who at that time was pining for the birth of a prince to succeed him on the throne. Realizing the spiritual heights Rishyasringa scaled, Dasaratha invited him to Ayodhya to officiate as the chief priest for conducting Putrakameshti Yagna. Under his efficacious guidance, the yagna was consummated to the supreme satisfaction of gods, who blessed the king with four sons, the likes of which the world has not seen, nor the Mother Earth would bring forth again.

Such is the holiness of Sringeri - the seat of Rishyasringa that emerged into lime light in the Tretayuga. After Rishyasringa's merging with the Sivalinga of the temple, it also receded into background and remained in oblivion till the emergence of Sri Sankara Bhagavatpada, who chose this sanctimonious kshetra for enshrining the Saradamba for religious regeneration of Bharatiya samkriti.
