SRIKALAHASTI

No genuine repentance ever went unrewarded, nor expression of pious desire remained unfulfilled. For, it is this holy land alone that grants Sakshat Siva Sayujya of the 105 Siva kshetras scattered all over the Jambudvipa; and it is the Srimaddhakshina Kailas that annihilates agnana Pasupravirthi in man, and lights up the vignana jyothi; it is in this Sivanandaika Nilayam, a much-adored Vayulinga bearing the imprints of Wind-god, spider, elephant, and serpent who worshipped ardently, and the adorers are liberated to their souls' contentment; it is this archamurthi that received adoration by Arjuna among the Pandavas; and Appar, Sambandar, Manika Vachakar, Sundarar among the Alwars; and it is here Sri Sankara-Bhagavatpada installed a chakra; it is this presiding deity that blessed the adorers with fulfillment of desires, like power of creation to Brahma; the highest tapassakti to Agasthya who changed the course Swarnamukhi to flowing near the temple; the Siva panchakshari to Parvathi that changed into Gnanaprasunambika; liberation to a paisacha, when the Lord uttered the Pranavamantra in her right ear; power of speech to Mooka; redemption from the sin of patricide to Mayoora; permanent cure from the Rajyakshma to the moon-god Chandra; lusture to the Sun-god-Surya; restoration of kingship to Indra; Salokya prapti to Kannappa the hunter Sayujyaprapti to the spider and elephant after whom the place is named Sri Kalahasti; moksha to Japal, despite beaten by him with a ladle; asamana khadga to King Mrityunjaya for winning back his throne; invaluable Atmavidya to the sages-Suka Sanatkumara and Parasara; Salokyaprapti to saranagata Sayujya mukti to Rajendra Chola, Tandava Nritya darsana prapti to Neelakanta and Sayujya mukti to Amritalata and Kantimati, Salokya mukti to Chakradhana, and to Kashmir King Padmasura etc., etc., etc.
