SRI VADAKKUNATHAN OF TRICHUR

 

THE LEGEND OF SRIMOOLASTHANAM

Another object of worship deserving devotional attention is the Srimoolasthanam - paved platform under a peepal tree near the western tower. It has an awe-inspiring story and establishes Parasurama's inexhaustible and inimitable passion for spiritual progress of the state, and particularly the shrines he built, or images installed by him. In this respect he is alone of the avatarapurushas surpassing any, at any time and in any place as a matter of fact.

According to the belief prevalent, it is at this sacred spot under the most sacred of trees, Aswatha Vriksha, he presided over the group of Nambadri Brahmins - the traditional priests and gave final directions for the performance of daily and occasional pujas, and instruction for running of the temple administration before his final disappearance. 

During the course of instructions, he assured that he would come to their rescue at the time of any crisis that may likely develop due to some error or the other. He acquainted them with the procedure to invoke his help like observing fast, chanting certain hymns etc. The priests were thoroughly pleased with his humanitarian zeal and adored him with respect due, for they knew that he was the personification of Sri Mahavishnu.
