VIJAYAWADA

Praising his Dharmanirati he gave life both to the prince and his victim. The king built a temple and enshrined a linga in the temple. It is on the same Indrakila Parvatha. This Malleswara descended again and again to protect his votaries dedicated to the propagation of Bhakti cult. On other occasion, a mystic by name Panditharadhya came to this town and worshipped Malleswaraswamy. As chance turned up to demonstrate the superiority of bhakta over sage, during the conversation with bhaktas assembled there, he decided to prove his faith and its truth. Before the witnessing public, he bundled up burning charcoal pieces in a piece of cloth and placed is over tender leaves of Sami tree growing there. Neither the cloth, nor the tender leaves burned, though the burning charcoal issued forth flames. All were wonderstruck. They praised him for establishing the power of bhakta through a credible proof. Erelong Lord Siva appearing before them praised his devotion and conviction, and public approbation. This happened during that redoubtable just king Madhava Varma and in the temple of Malleswaraswamy at it.
