SIVASHTA MURTHIS

Though that Supreme Reality is permeating the whole Universe, to be precise, he is occupying the entire cosmos, at only eight holy places, he is revealing himself, in one particular aspect at one place or the other like Prithvimurti at Kancheepuram, Apomurthi at Jambukeswar etc.  For revealing such aspect at that particular spot, there are several causes and the selection of each is made on grounds most appropriate.  The Puranas though differ in certain details, they all converge on the point of sanctity of the place and presence of that aspect.

Let us take up each kshetra, visit and adore that murti soulfully for emancipation.  Our first visit is to Kancheepuram, where the Prithvimurthi, one of the eight forms is giving darsan since time immemorial.  On account of the revelation of this form, it has become a great pilgrim centre and many more such factors contributed to its global importance.  Let us visit to examine each of such meritorious factors reverentially for illumination first and implementation of divine ordinances next for emancipation.
