SOURCES

As this kshetra was tuned into Dhakshina Kailas by Lord Maheswar, so as to be within the easy reach of his bhakthakoti in the beginning of creation itself, it has such abundant corpus of evidence that scores of racks are overflowing with rare books dealing with the Siva lilas. Among the scriptures mention must be made of great works, like Suta Samhita, Surya Samhita, Parvatha Mahatmyam, Suvaran Mukhari Mahatmyam, Ashtadhyayi, Sivapuranam, Skanda puranam kenopanished etc. Every writer, or saint in rhapsody or tranquility emptied his soul; eulogising the glory of the Lord, for its history is as old as the universe of the master - pieces, Mahakavi Durjati's Srikalahasteeswara Mahatmyam shines resplendent as a dazzling diamond set in a glittering gold. It perches the highest place and a reading metamorphoses even a hardened atheist into devout theist of non-pareil fame, surpassing even the inimitable Kannappa Nayanar. The Sthalapuranam supplies many such fantastic accounts that consume days and nights of incessant study. So it is enough, if attention is paid to three episodes instrumental in giving to this kshetra the holy name of Srikalahasti. Its antiquity though dates back to krita yuga and spans over the other three yugas, only a few episodes stand out prominent, and among them four are taken for full treatment.
