  GRAMA DEVATHAS

A cursory glance at these earliest deities certainly pays. rather a necessity for full illumination at this stage. It affords an interesting study as a matter of fact. If Puranas are probed, we come across several instances of abundant powers of these deities utilized by devas, manavas and danavas as well. They proved reliable and discharged their duties to the utmost satisfaction of their employers. Trouble never persisted, nor peace eluded the grasp of the masters trusted. The office of Lankini as the Chief Security officer, keeping guard of the fortified Lanka, stationed at the Mahadwar is a standing proof to the point in question. Her monstrous shape and awful stature with ferocity exuding from the every pore of her body was unapproachable and invulnerable to any except the incarnated daivamsasambhutas. This is from the epic Ramayana and stands a specimen of the prevalent tradition of employing of dreadful persons to protect the inhabitants of a place. Not only danavas employed them but the incarnated too. And the very same epic testifies to the existence of these devathas. It is recorded that Kusa, the younger son of Sri Rama the seventh in ear nation of Sri Maha Vishnu, was listening to a pathetic appeals of Ayodhyadevi at a certain critical period testing her might.
