ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

 

Seeing the unusual beauty of that highest divinity, Bhishma prayed in such ecstatic rapture that it is adorning the literature with a unique grace. He welcomed Krishna to severe his head, since he knew that death at the hands of Bhagavan is nothing but instant salvation. Just then Arjuna rushing to Srikrishna appealed to withdraw, for it was his duty to fight, and Krishna's to drive the chariot as agreed upon in the beginning. If krishna were to kill, both of them would become laughing stock for not keeping up their word, though they were the only fittest persons. 

The form of the jumping Krishna from chariot with Sudarsan in his hand is captivating and that very same form is captured in the archamurthi of this temple. The singularity of the situation ended in granting of the boons as desired by Arjuna and Bhishma - withdrawing from the sense as Arjuna prayed, and death of Bhishma. Hence the belief that praying to this Mulavirat ensures certainty of fulfilling of desires. And it proved true in almost all cases. hence the unending streams of Bhaktas who surrender themselves at the sacrosanct feet of the Lord to guide the chariot of their life sans pitfalls as it did in the case of Arjuna.
