BHADRACHALAM

ANTIQUITY

This region with turbulent Godavari flowing fast, touching the high Bhadragiri, rising above the primeval forest, over grown with thick greenery and colourful verdure was an integral part of Dandakaranya during the Tretayuga. It we then impenetrable and unfordable for common folk for any purpose Exactly 30 km upstream the river Godavari from the present Sri Rama shrine there lay the holy parnasalas, built by Lakshmana for the divine couple at the time of their sojourn in the down South to lifting the afflicted tapasvis from the asurakrityas of Ravana and his hordes. Here they lived a carefree life enjoying the Nature's bounteous hospitality till that ominous arrival of Maricha in the form of golden deer at the command of the earth and earthy lustful Ravana to luring away the divine brothes for facilitating his easy abduction of Mother Sita. Albeit extremely docile in nature, ever law-abiding in disposition and modest in ambition, she not only sent her all loving spouse to fetch that lovely deer, but bade Lakshman, the ideal brother to go to the rescue of Sri Rama on hearing the piteous , but feigned notes of "Ha Sita! Ha Lakshmana!", let out by Maricha to paving the way for the descent of Ravana, that indeed inaugurated the destruction of Lankarajya. Despite Lakshmana's persuasive appeals to convince her about the safety and invulnerability of Rama's person, Mother Sita caught up in the tight grip of capricious fate drove Lakshman out of the Parnasala to give succour to Sri Ram, the perennial source of ready succour to one and all.
