CHENGANNUR - BHAGAWATI TEMPLE

The Aftermath of Sati's Immolation:

There is another version, accounting for the bleeding of the archamurti in the shrine. Its origin takes back to the antiquity, exactly to the scene of action of MOTHER SATI'S immolation. This pouranic episode too has received greater respectability along with acceptability with mute submission.

According to it - once when Dhaksha went to Brahma's court on some official work, all the assembled except Lord Siva rose up as mark of respect, and he deserved on account of his position as one of the Navabrahmas. But to expect such respect from the highest, one among the Trimurthis is too much - nothing short of idiocy. 

His superciliousness contrived to make matters worse by launching out into a malicious project of performing a great yagna, inviting to it all the Mukkotidevathas except Lord Siva, who in fact is one of the three yagnaphala bhoktas. He did it with the wicked design of taking revenge on Siva who is no other than his son-in-law; little knowing that the tables would be turned against him; he would be destroyed. Sati, his consort and the pet daughter of Daksha, seeing the gods attending the yaga with great jubilation, pleaded with her lord to attend it; but Lord Siva vehemently turned it down on the plea that her father willfully neglected him in not sending the invitation.
