SRIKALAHASTI

UNIQUENESS

Srikalahasti, Ah! what a sonorous name! How pompous!! And how fantastic is it in contents, composition and glory!!! Each of its three constituents Sri+Kala+Hasti embodies an awe-inspiring episode soaked in devotion that publishes to the world the peerless compassion of that Omnicompassionate Lord Maheswar, a byword for kindness. This thirtha kshetra lying on the Eastern bank of holy river Swarnamukhi, though predominantly a Sivakshetra, it is luring theists of all denominations in lacs round the year, since the Vedic period. On account of the eternal presence of Gowri and Shankar here, to lifting of the erring-either the highest like Brahma, or the lowest, an insect; this mokshapuri has acquired the honorific title of Dhakshina Kailas. Its enchanting history spinning round the four yugas links up heaven with the earth through a multiplicity of events, enlightening ultimately that bhakti should be the consummation of one's existence, and that alone paves the sure way for Sayujya Prapti. Each of the episode that occurred on this Punya dharithi left indelible imprints on its surface in the form of holy ponds, high hills, flowing waters, sacred shrines etc., and they narrate how Lord Maheswar emancipated the penitent sinners by correction and benediction.
