BHAGAWATHI OF GHENGANNUR

THE AFFERMATH OF SATI'S IMMOLATION

There is another version, accounting for the bleeding of the archamurthi in the shrine. This pouranic episode too has received greater respectability along with acceptability with mute submission.

According to it, when Sati immolated herself in Yogagni at the ruthless himiliation meted out to her by none but her father, Lord. Siva descended right at the Yagna Sala and put the place and people to total destruction, that went beyond recognition. Placing the corpse on his shoulders, he started Thandava Nrithya in such frenzied fury and wild excitement that the world and people shook and shivered to an incredible magnitude that Lord Mahavishnu appeared on the scene and thwarted the Mahapralaya by cutting the corpse into several pieces with his potent Sudarsan disc. The fragments fell at several places throughout the length and breadth of India. And each place became a much hallowed Saktipita of ethereal significance, universal veneration and perpetual visitation.

Among the fragments that flew and fell at different places, Mother Sati's Yoni - reproductive organ fell here at Chengannur. And that accounts for the menstruation of the Principal image - Mother Parvathi since then. Which out steps which in credibility is not the lesson to be sought for from the two, but unconditional total, mute acceptance of the divine power, permeating every inch of the sacred place is the important point that alone beckons the theists for visitation and adoration. Aren't the sports of the Divinity mysterious?
