when the venerable Bilwamangala Swamiyar visited the temple-on this
festival day, he found to his surprise the absence of the Lord in
Srikoil. And shock greeted him when he found the Lord serving the
artistes. The Swamiyar exhilarating at this oddity put the question
"Why"? to the Lord. Pat came the reply "It is with
their superb performance, the festival reaches perfection.
contribution in accelerating the glory of this temple is beyond
words. Therefore I am pleased to serve". None can measure the
depth of the ocean of his Karuna, nor could any instrument record it
at any time. How fortunate are the artistes and what else they
require more than this. Among the other festivals this temple
celebrates, mention must be made of Palipana.
