TIRUVIL WAMALA - THE SEAT OF RAMA & LAKSHMANA

 

The Lord waited for a chance. And the end came when the fake Brahmin entered the Srikoil one dark midnight in the month of Kumbha to destroy the sacred Swayambhu image. Lord Srirama assuming the Narasimha form tore the danavadhama to pieces. The uproar created by the dying danava awakened the people, and who on entering the Srikoil were terribly frightened at the sight of the archamurthi. At the juncture, the famous sage Bilwamangala Swamiyar appeared on the scene and appeased the anger of the Lord with several hymns eulogising the glory of Vilwadrinatha and his compassion.

Before the prayers ended the Lord appeared in snataswarupa and received veneration through special prayers. There is a place now called Murikunnu-ox-hill standing as a testimony of the horns and bones heaped by that ruthless danava, which incidentally sheds light on the Lord's Omni compassion shown to his adorers.
