SRI VADAKKUNATHAN OF TRICHUR

 

He used to sit in front of the shrine in the mornings and disappear with the closing of temple doors, and reappear just at their opening the next day. His masculine vigour, youthful charm and saintly attitude drew the attention of the visiting Bhaktas. The young women taking fancy for him cast amorous looks on him, more often than not. Slyly and openly they feasted their eyes with his unusual charms. Result! When children were born to those who looked at him long for days, they resembled the young saint.

Men suspected and decided to get rid of him. Somehow! The news came to him. Soon he engaged some skilled artisans and made a huge image of an enchanting majestic bull and installed it at the entrance. Now it is the turn for the cows to be fascinated by the extraordinary beauty of the bull, and riveted their broad eyes on it, forgetting grazing even. This went on for some time. Later, the newly born calves, bore striking resemblances to the stone bulls lying at the temple. People realised their folly. Sure, whatever the object the pregnant women fancy for, or concentrate their attention on during their pregnancy, the offspring's partake its qualities and shape. It is the same bull the visitors see and worship before offering prayers to the principal deities.
