Abhishakas - Reason
It is quite expedient at this stage to know the import of the
Prayer Service; for queer doubts were expressed by some sane persons as to how
could that slender icon stand those countless abhishekams being performed for
over centuries now.
According to one belief the icon is an amalgam of nine
different kinds of medicinal minerals - pashanas blended together in specific
proportions. Hence its amazing strength to withstand any number. But the pundits
of Siddha science refute it on the ground that such ingredients would naturally
evaporate with slight touch of heat.
