VAIDESWARAN KOIL

Introduction

Heard you ever of the highest divinity descending in doctor's robes straight into war theatre, to hurrying hither and thither for dressing the wounds of war victims, assisted by the celestial nymphs, donned in the immaculate white gowns, making enquires with soft words, while removing the spears and arrows lodged in their bodies, debilitated by profuse bleeding, yet found smiling at the fortune of being attended by the kindest among the Highest? Or seen you ever the pleasantest sight of the divine Mother, the affection incarnate handing over a cup of nectarine milk to a kid white the parents bathing in the nearby tank, before entering the sanctum only to rip open their hearts, torn to shreds by demoralizing poverty in front of the benevolent deities for mercy?

If not, sure a visit to Vaideeswaran Koil and Sirkali unties the knot and makes you prostrate before those august deities unknown to yourself, while tears streaming down your cheeks, indicate your inexplicable joy emerging out of the overflowing heart. The protagonists of these two awe-inspring episodes are none but Uma and Maheswar, the Adidampatis, who but have one heart though possessing two different and distinct bodies, perhaps to justify the name Ardhanaris9var given, when two became one. These two reveal their all-merciful attitude towards the grief-stricken, for which both of them are the bywords for kindness. The sports played by them are countless, and the devotees lifted by them too are numberless. Amongst them, these two stand out as outstanding in publishing to the worlds that their sole concern is nothing but making the miserable less miserable by their timely ministrations in every conceivable form. Always!
Now visit the Vaideeswaran Koil first, and know the sthalapuranam before entering that holy temple.
