PALI - BALLALESWAR MANDIR

EFFECT OF BALLALA'S CURSE

Ballala prayed to Vinayaka and uttered that he was more miserable at the destruction caused to pooja materials than the wounds inflicted on his body by his father. Despite unbearable pain of the thrashings he received, he was chanting Vinayaka's name endlessly, unaffected by thirst and hunger. The Lord then appeared in the form of a brahmin and touched the body 6f Ballala, when he was in the fainted condition. Soon he regained consciousness and felt new vigour and vitality injected into his body. Recognising the real identity of the Brahmin, he prostrated before him. Vinayaka revealing his nijarupa said that his curse would come true and his father would suffer from it even in the next janma too. Satisfied, Ballala asked the Lord to abide here in this place to extend succour to the ill-starred victims and remove their anguish. Granting it, Vinayaka added that he would remain here for ever and be named and adored as Ballala Vinayaka in recognition of his bhakti. Saying so, he merged into a nearby stone which is now called Ballaleswar, receiving worship with unbounded devotional fervor. The stone broken by Kalyan is still lying and called by the name of Dundi Vinayaka.
