CHENGANNUR - BHAGAWATI TEMPLE

A deliberate malevolent act! Inexcusable on am- count!! By anyone for that matter!!! Sati persisted, but Siva remained firm like rock. Much against her Lord's displeasure, Sati went presuming that her father would relent on seeing her, or hearing her word. But the ego-centred Dhaksha rose like fire resembling to that of the tongues of fire on pouring ghee, and insulted her in the most vituperative language - "Siva, a beggar, a sentinel at the burial ground, uncouth mountain-dweller", unbecoming on the part of person of his position; unworthy of a treatment ever meted out by a father to daughter, and undeserving to the status of a high dignitary holding an august office among the Trimurihis.

Unable to swallow am- more of the indiscreet derogatory verbiage, she burnt herself in the yogagni enveloped at her request at the ruthless humiliation meted out to her by none but her father. Lord Siva descended right at the yagnasala and put the place and people to total destruction, that went beyond recognition. Placing the corpse on his shoulders, he started Thandava Nrithya in such frenzied fury causing tremors and wild excitement to the world. People shook and shivered to such an incredible magnitude that Lord Mahavishnu appeared on the scene and thwarted the Mahapralaya by cutting the corpse into several pieces with his potent Sudarsan disc. The fragments fell at several places throughout the length and breadth of India. And each place was made by Lord Maheswar a much-hallowed Saktipeet of ethereal significance, universal veneration and perpetual visitation. Among the fragments that flew and fell at different places.
