he is the veritable Rudra, forgiving nothing, but giving everything
to the deserving innocent or penitent. Wanton indifference and
deliberate hood-winking can, never be tolerated, nor allowed
deferred. Indefinitely. As is the fault, so is the retribution.
Graver the commission, harsher is the retribution, but it is
proportionate. And lo! it carries penalty when dodged.
No mercy nor
remission. Fair justice moves on the fours sans rancour or
vengeance. If perversity, or duplicity raises its head, he turns a
doctor and uses scissors and needle. Soon after making the sutures,
he collects the fee, with interest
for willful evasion; he becomes now a prototype of Tirupathi
Vaddikasula Venkataramana, the prince among usurers, who exacts
payments due with interest, up to date sans considerations of any
is the philosophy of Ettamanur Siva, adored here in his fierce
aspect. And he revels in it for he knew for extending boundless
Vastyalyanugraha once to an unscrupulous asura, he ran over vales
and dales to save his person and came out unscathed only on
implementation of Krishnaniti by Lord Mahavishnu, who released him
from that conceited Bhasmasura.
