TIRUKKOILUR

ANTIQUITY

MRIKANDA MAHARSHIS EPISODE

Brahma Purana embodies a good deal of information dealing with the unparalleled glory of this Kshetra, due to its association with illustrious divine personages, mighty rulers and celebrated minstrels. Of the many recorded, the Mrikanda Maharshi's episode is quite interesting, besides being awe-inspiring. 

It narrates that Mrikanda Maharshi, on returning from his deergha tapas, spreading over several centuries was informed by the asramites of the Vamanavatar of the Lord and relieving Devendra from the unending atrocities of Mahabali, the formidable sworn enemy of devas. They recounted vividly Mahabali's glorious rule on earth which was unknown to asuras till then. But his irreconcilable enmity with Devendra went beyond endurance and for the deliverance of devas, Lord Maha Vishnu was forced to incarnate as Vamana - a short but potent celibate.
