TIRUVIL WAMALA - THE SEAT OF RAMA & LAKSHMANA

 

AMALAKAN EPISODE  

The Swayambhu archamurthi now worshipped in the temple has a fantastic background and is associated with Amalakan-the devout son of Kasyapa Prajapati. The Purana reads thus - Amalaka designing to lifting mankind from the samsarasagara through devotion did dirgha tapas here. Power mad Devendra presuming Kasyapa's motive for Devedrarapadivi tried to foil it with the help of celestial nymphs - Rambha, Urvasi etc. 

His rock-like firmness did not allow any dent. He then approached Kasyapa to dissuading his son from that desire; Kasyapa acquainted him with the nobility of his son's penance for achanchala bhakti - unstinted devotion only and not for any transitory bhoga. Pleased with it, Devendra again enjoyed peaceful nights. It has a strange reaction on the asuras.
