SRIRAMA'S TEMPLE - TRIPRAYAR

 

THE DEITY'S PREFERENCE FOR KOOTU

Here is an anecdote that fortifies this belief. In accordance with the rules of the Koottu, there must be at least one Brahmin spectator during the enactment. It happened that no single Brahmin attended the performance once. The performance was at his wits end, and was cursing himself at his predicament. There came then a resonant voice, "Go ahead, Koottu is performed for me, not for Brahmins. Perform it in my presence. Stop not". The divine command was implemented anon. 

The actor was elated and the invisible spectator was delighted beyond measure. Since then, the Koottu is offered in the mandapa itself instead of a separate one specially created for this purpose. And moreover, the garbhagriha is kept open throughout the performance.
