AMARAVATHI

Unable to endure, all the devas met Lord Vishnu and narrated their woeful tale. Listening patiently, he regretted his inability, saying that his potent boons were invulnerable, and Lord Siva alone could offer solution and relieve them from misery. So they directed their steps to Lord Siva and repeated their woes, but Lord Siva frankly admitted his unwillingness and helplessness; for Taraka was a great Siva bhakta, and his bhakti acts such a protective armour to him that any weapon by any, and at any time, proves futile. He would not harm Siva bhakta, nor was be capable of it. Does this not reveal how potent the devotion is, and how the greatest potentate too becomes the worst impotent? And the most highest too submits itself to it? Inspite of explaining his incompetence, the devas prayed for showing them the way. Melted at their tearstained faces, he deputed Shanmuga and assured that he would achieve victory. With redoubled vigour, they started the battle, soon alas! Shanmuga too was courting failure now and then.
