place with such awe-inspiring back ground flourished in all
directions, when Lord Siva came down here at the request of Sati
after marriage. The devotees who prayed soulfully were lifted from
the abyss of misery. Mere narration of woeful tales with tearful
genuine prayers before that All-merciful Lord is enough to reap a
bumper harvest - fulfillment of long-pending and much - awaited
desires. Devotees enjoying the timely succour live a life of ease,
grace and peace. Neither misery or despair ever trod on this soil.
So the kshetra acquired the honorific name of Bhogapuri, where a
true devotee for a simple soulful prayer is assured of a graceful,
contented, dignified and sublime life minus severe austerities and
physical mortification to win the favour of Lord Siva. Here is an
incident that exemplifies this as a renowned Bhogapuri.
