ALAMPUR

The dutiful son being brought up on bread of bhakti and water of implicit faith started penance to find out solution and remove the stigma, his mother was forced to bear upon. His severe penance brought Lord Viswanath before him, who directed him to go Brahmeswara kshetra in the down South and build temples for all the divinities, and the gods abiding in that kshetra - Brahmeswara, Jagulamba and Ganapathy would help him to achieve his objects, and he and his mother would get Sayujya mukti. The boy, who by then mastered Rasayoga came to Hemalapura and started building temples, beginning with Navabrahmas with due propitiation to the presiding deities of the place, as directed by Lord Maheswar. Soon there sprouted on the Mother Earth a series ofmagnificent temples of unearthly splendour. Temple after temple rose up and stupified the people. The cost of construction was met by him with the power of Rasayoga with which he converted stones into lumps of gold. His fame spread like wild fire as the construction went on. It reached the ears of Vilasat Raja, an atheist first and last. He came with army and destroyed all the temples built and also seized the vessel containing Siddha rasa used for converting stones into gold. Enraged at his iconoclastic acts and sacrilegious attitude, he cursed him to lose wealth, power, kingdom and all. His powerful curse bore fruit, and the king became a nomad sans grace, glamour and food too.
