TIRUPATI

ANTIQUITY

There are several versions trying to lift the curtain on His appearance on the sacred Hills; each has its own setting, time and characters, and what is more each makes a credibly delightful reading, due to the real fragrance it is anointed with. According to Padma Purana, Manu once performed a great yagna on a grand scale attended by celestials too. During the course of it, there arose a dispute regarding the supremacy of gods among the Trimurthis. Each learned scholar and spiritual luminary advanced his argument with evidence justifying his selection. The plethora of proofs in respect of each claim was so confusing that the elders though it fit send one sage for spot observation and report the findings for conclusion by the committee formed for this. The choice fell on Sage Brighu, son of Brahma. Brighu first went to Kailas. And on securing admission into the innermost chamber by Nandi with great difficulty, he reached Siva Sannidhi, and found the Adidampatis engaged in amorous sports; finding them indifferent to his presence, he grew angry and cursed them. When he went to Satyaloka, Brahma never even got up to receive him; for, Brighu was after all his manasaputra. Unable to stomaching the insult, he cursed him, and straight way directed his steps to Vaikunta. Still worse! He found here Lord Vishnu in deep sleep oblivious of his duty. The Highest divinity in the deepest sleep during the day; a sight unbearable!! His anger reached the climax.
