KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Kasibugga - Sri Ranganatha Aalyam

This famous Ranganatha kshetra embodies certain odd features that surprise the visitors, particularly the discerning devout Vaishnavates. Though it is a Vaislinava kshetra with characteristic Vaishnavate traditions followed to perfection with scrupulous care to every detail, it has certain glaring oddities. First among them is - the reclining Ranganatha icon is installed on a panavatta, which solely reserved for Saivate gods and more particularly for Sivaalinga only. It is a paradox leading to many conjectures. According to a certain local version, it was once a famous Sivalaya and later converted into Vaishnava kshetra by certain vested interest. It is corroborated by the existence of a small shrine for Siva lying next to it. For laymen, it is as good as a Sivalaya to worshipping the presiding deity with an untainted devotional fervor. True devotion curbs distinctions and rises above all the petty and colored glass phobia. Cod is God, ever ready to answer every call and succor help., if prayed soulfully, says the witless ignoramus. And in fact, they are the only true children of God. Lo! their number is large.

According to one source, the Kasibugga - the eternal sweet water spring lying here was dug by a feudal lord to fulfill the pious ambition of his wife. It is believed that Ganges water is flowing underneath it, and so the apt name Kasibugga. The temple follows Vaikhanasa agama in performing regular and occasional pujas. Annual festivals are celebrated with great devotional fervour.

It lies in Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh, commanding bus facilities.
