TIRUVIL WAMALA - THE SEAT OF RAMA & LAKSHMANA

 

They understood that Amalaka was seeking the means for their end through Lord Mahavishnu's boons. So they resorted to Paisachaka krityas to frustrate it. For Amalaka, it was a child's play to annihilte them. He opened his eyes - there emered then crackling sparks that developed into great conflagration swallowing the mischievous elements in their entirety. And their remains formed into a rock, which is now going by the name in Rakshasapaara - demon rock, and is lying to the south west of the temple.

Thoroughly pleased with his soul force, Lord Mahavishnu stood before him flanked by Sridevi and Bhudevi with Adisesha as canopy. Amalaka's eyes streamed joyous tears profusely; for it was a rare darsan and he expected for Lord's darsan only. When the Lord asked him to name his desire, he merely expressed lokodharana ideal first - freeing mankind from the never ending family worries by remaining here for worship by people and granting him the much coveted boon of unstinted devotion achanchala Bhakti. Overjoyed at his humanitarian objective, the Lord at once transferred his tejas to the archamurthi - Srirama, being worshipped till then. As Amalaka Maharshi used to chant the name of Rama while offering prayers do the deity in the Srikoil facing west, it is called Srirama's temple and so Bhaktas utter Srirama while worshipping here, and Lakshmana while praying to the idol in the adjacent Srikoil facing east. Both are chaturbhujamurthis, adorned with the same weapons and are in standing postures exuding grace through their Santaswarupas. The Srikoils are also similar in constructional aspects, such as shape, height adornments etc.
