LORD SIVA OF ETTAMANUR

How grand! It springs another surprise. The soot collected on the cover of the lamp cures eye diseases. Hence the craze for collection. It is believed that worshipping this lamp with vows releases the victims of the evil spirits from their grip. That is the power of the holy lamp, and it has awe - some background. This happened 1545 AD.

One evening a few temple officials were standing in front of the west tower, whiling away their time in idle gossip. Just then a bell smith approaching them requested in all earnestness to buy the huge brass lamp, he was in possession of, saying to give any amount for his night's meal. 

It was ,a superb piece of workmanship and shone brightly. Some irresponsible people, besides giving evasive replies answered that there would be none to supply oil to such big lamp. Thereupon the seller replied that it being an auspicious one, it might burn without oil or with water; and if kept in the temple, devotees might pour oil and see it burning eternally. Alas! he was heckled at. At this moment all on a sudden a mysterious person rushing from inside took the lamp and disappeared.
