DRAKSHARAMAM

For, it is in this holy place that the All-merciful Mahadev is abiding to conferring bhoga on the devotees, while living, and moksha on death, unlike other similar archamurthis renowned for granting emancipation sans bhoga; it is this kshetra entered in the records as the Northern tip demarcating the boundary of the once Trilinga desa, now called Andhra Pradesh, one of the great states occupying the first place in the official list of states of the Indian union; it is to this kshetra of peace and plenty, Vedavyasa was directed by Mata Annapurneswari for settlement; it is in this Dakshina Kasi, the great sage Agasthya stayed for years, after humbling the ever-growing Vindhyas; it is here Dhakshaprajapathi lived, and Mother Parvathi burnt herself, when insulted by none but her own father; it is this flourishing city that was converted into burial ground by Virabhadra, at the behest of Lord Siva; it is here Lord Siva started his Thandava Nritya with Parvathi's corpse on shoulders under ungovernable indignations caused by the ruthlessness of Daksha, his own father-in-law; it is to this temple Pushkarini, the Saptharishis brought Godavari water through underground passage for abhisheka of Lord Siva.
