TIRUPATI

THE VENKATACHALA EPISODE

Once it appears, there arose a dispute between Adisesha - the king of serpents and Vayu - the God of wind over the question of superiority - who between the two was mightier. Strange it was, and when it grew hottest, both agreed for an open and instant demonstration of their inherent strength. According to the agreement, the Wind-God, to prove his superior might must blow off the thousand peaks of Meru mountain covered all over by Adisesha with its thousand hoods. The Wind-God with all his might blew fast with such incredible velocity that the earth began shivering, but the grip of Adisesha over the peaks was so tight and strong that the Wind-God fell on the ground in a heap. Evidently Adisesha was mightier. Then something happened there that turned the tables against Adisesha. The Wind-God thus fell down rose up again, and with redoubled strength and speed, blew fast, when Adisesha was just raising his head in jubilation over Victory. And his grip too was light then. Alas! a few peaks blown off by the Wind-God fell in far off places. One among those peaks fell on the Nallamalai Hills, and it was called Venkatachala. Whether the contest ended thus was final, or they ceased their further trials or not, one thing it established the Venkatachala was integral part of Meruparvatha, and it partook the sanctity of that famous holy Mount.
