LORD RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

 

THE PRIESTS' AND THEIR GLORY

The priests too reposed implicit faith in the Lord and they defied the command of the earthly lords however superior and powerful they were. They were very proud of their learning and office. They never recognized the superiority of earthly power. Once they flatly turned down the Maharaja Marthanda Vimana's invitation, soliciting their participation in the Murajapam he started. They went to the extent of sending the reply clothed in vituperative language - "We are in the service of Rajarajeswara, and he is our supreme authority. We obey only perumtri kovilappan, but not any other! Their dedication and audacity merit whole-hearted appreciation and emulation. 

May their tribe increase! Sure, moving and breathing there round the clock in the temple of Rajarajeswara they could not but behave otherwise.  They imbibed the imperial dignity and breathed out sovergnity. So everything here exudes royalty and inspires dignity, nay it begets in the immediate progeny and bequeaths to the distant posterity too.
