Glory of Anjaneyar
to a few Vaishnavite scholars, Anjaneyar is doing penance
atop the hill to become the next Brahma. The Lord has reportedly
advised Anjaneyar that there is a better service to perform,
than becoming a Brahma, which is just a post created for a
specific purpose of being a creator of the Universe. Instead,
the Lord has advised Anjaneyar, the 4-handed bestower of boons,
that by blessing His devotees who visit Him
at Thirkadigai, he can remain in the eternal service of the
Lord. According to legend Anjaneyar helped Indrathymna Maharaja,
one of the kings in the region, to vanquish a demon called
Arakkan Nikumban, Kalan, Keyan and saved the kingdom.
Lord Anjaneyar accomplished this task on a Sunday and hence
every Sunday is an important day at Siriya Thiruvadi. People
take a bath in the Chakkra Theertham of the Small Hill and
worship the Lord.
