SRI VADAKKUNATHAN OF TRICHUR

 

The Tekhinikadu with its thick foliage and surrounding green verdure lifted his soul and intensified his longing for immediate installation. So he sat in meditation and propitiated Lord Siva for materialising his pious wish. He ardently prayed for Lord Siva's manifestation alone here. When he opened his eyes, to his pleasant surprise, he found the beautiful image of Lord Mahavishnu with four arms, holding Sankha, Chakra, Gada and Tamara. 

As his aspiration went awry, he again began meditation, but this time on opening the eyes he found two images, one was that of Rama and the other Siva. Although highly pleased at the sight of the! two, when prayed for one only he decided to give his ambition another chance, so resumed meditation; but this time, to his great shock and surprise found the image of Sankaranarayana, flanked by Rama on one side and Siva on the other.
