SRIKALAHASTI

THE EPISODE OF SRI

Proper beginning should be with SRI, the first letter of the name - Sri Kalahasti. It stands for a certain spider that attained Sayujyaprapti here. The spider was the son of a pious brahmin called Satyasaka in previous birth and lived on the bark of river Tamraparni. He developed friendship with lowly weavers and spent a dissolute life, despite the heart-rending appeals by the parents to return to the Brahmin fold. Due to quirk of fate, he left his parents and went to Konkanadesa along with a weaver called Patala- a victim of incurable diseases, but was very rich. The weaver adopted and called him Karambai. He died soon, leaving all his wealth to Karambai. Instant richness made his head reel. And he dissipated all the inherited in the company of unbridled characters. When thrown into ditch of peruny, lie repented, but to what effect? Before his death he had the good fortune of meeting a Saivate devotee, who asked him to part with a cloth to adorn the Sivalinga of his place. He obliged. That was the only merit stood to his account at the time of death; for, under the intoxication of money, he led an immoral life causing unending torments to his dependents and trusted friends.
