KING VALLALA EPISODE

Here is an anecdote of his performing like a son the funeral obsequies of his devotee, King Vallala. It happened King Vallala a great devotee of Lord Siva was without issues through his two wives - Mallama Devi and Sallama Devi. He performed everything that Sastras prescribed for Santanaprapti. 

In accordance with the tenets of a particular Sastric injection for child birth, he announced that he would give anything desired by the supplicant when met. He implemented it to the last letter. His devotion moved Siva, but decided to put him to set before fulfilling his wish. Anon he appeared in the guise of a Sanyasi and asked the king to provide him a dancing girl. Vallala in right earnest tried but everyone in the capital was engaged by Maheswar's ganas in accordance with his well laid out scheme.
