SABARIMALAI

THE EPISODE OF BHASMASURA

The second version begins thus. There was once a formidable demon by name Bhasmasura. For obtaining rare boons, he propitiated Siva and did penance for centuries. When the compassionate Lord appeared to fulfill his desires, the perverted, power-mad demon asked for the boon of reducing to ashes any object - animate or inanimate when he puts his hand upon it. Though strange, Bhaktavasankar said "yes", alas! that alone caught him unawares.

Anon Bhasmasura who wanted to test the efficacy of the boon granted and tried to place his hand on the Lord himself. Siva took to heels, running over hills and dales, plains and woods, but the arrogant demon did not leave him. He chased him from pillar to post. At long last, finding a thick bush, he concealed himself for a while, gasping, yet praying to Lord Mahavishnu to come to his rescue.
