Thirukkadaiyur Temple – Legend 1 – Markendeya

Standard

Have you ever wondered why Thirukkadaiyur temple is so famous for Shastiapthapoorthi (60th birthday), Bhimaradha shanthi (70th birthday), 80th birthday (sadabishegam) and other Ayul Shanthi fire worships?

Well, one of the Legends about this temple has an answer to it.

Because Lord yama can always wait.

Because Lord yama can always wait.

No matter what the religion is or what ideology it emphasizes, there’s always a legend to it; a history that transcends generations, a belief that endures the test of time and a moral that is expertly hidden. It is this legend that sustains our culture and it is the belief that sustains spirituality in an individual.

The legend states that a sage, Maharashi Mrikandu, a rishi of Bhrigu clan (Remember Shiva Trilogy?), prayed to Lord Shiva to bless him with a son. Shiva heeded to his prayers and offered him a choice;

1. He could either have a son who’s dim-witted and would live for more than 100 years.
2. Or, he could have a son who’s extremely brilliant but would die at his age of 16.

Maharishi Mrikandu chose the latter. Quite understandably.
Seriously, what could one do with a son who is dim-witted? Throw him in a third rate engineering college?

Markandeya grew up to be a great devotee of Shiva and on the day of his destined death he continued his worship of Shiva in his aniconic form of Shivalingam. The messengers of Yama, the god of death were unable to take away his life because of his great devotion and continual worship of Shiva. Yama then came in person to take away Markandeya’s life, and sprung his noose around the young sage’s neck. By accident or fate the noose mistakenly landed around the Shivalingam, and out of it, Shiva emerged in all his fury attacking Yama for his act of aggression. After defeating Yama in battle to the point of death, Shiva then revived him, under the condition that the devout youth would live forever. Siva rescued him from death, incarnating him as Kalantaka (the ender of death).

Hence from then on, devotion to the deity here is believed to free oneself from the clutches of Yama and defeat death, ensuring long-life to the individual.

Well, while the deity in Thirukkadaiyur takes care of your longevity, we at Hotel Sadhabishegam will take care of your hospitality there. So, don’t worry about quality food and stay while you plan your trip.   :)
