Rina Pariharam: Pariharam (Remedial Measures) to be done to avoid any health problems that affects the blood.

1. Start the Rina Pariharam by doing a Pooja to Lord Ganesha for the successful completion of the Pariharam.

2. Select Sunday as the starting day for doing Rina Pariharam for any type of blood related illness like blood sugar, blood pressure, blood cancer, blood cloggings (or) to avoid facing any malefic effects of poisoning. 

3. Best time for doing this Pariharam is the Rahu Kalam (Period of Rahu) on Sundays @ 04.30 pm to 06.00 pm (your local time).

4. You need to chant this Mantra on Lord Sarabeswarar atleast 108 time (or) in multiples of 108. 

"Moola Mantra" of Lord Sarabeswarar:

Om Khem Kaum Bhatt
Hum bhatt sarva satru sam-hara-naya
Saraba salu-vaya
Patchi rajaya
Hum bhatt swahaa!

Lord Sarabeswarar:

Lord Sarabeswara is an "avatar" of Lord Shiva. The Lord Narasimha (Avatar of Lord Vishnu) became more ferocious after He had killed the "Asura" Iranya by toring his stomach and started drinking his blood. The Lord Narasimha became more ferocious after drinking the blood of the Asura @ the blood of Lord Narasimha became poisonous; and the universe was not able to withstand trauma of the events that had followed due to the fercious nature of Lord Narasimha.

Then everybody including Sage Naradha, Lord Indira and Lord Brahmatried their best to pacify the The Lord Narasimha; but met with no success. Then the Bhatka Prahalatha (the son of "Asura" Iranya; for whom the Lord Vishnu performed this avatar) had tried his best to stop the ferocious nature of The Lord Narasimha; but met with little success. Then they all went to Lord Shiva; and requested Him to save everyone in this Universe. Lord Shiva had approved their request.

The Lord Shiva had sent the Lord Veerabhadra (one of the avatar of Lord Shiva) to pacify the The Lord Narasimha. The Lord Veerabhadra had offered paryers to The Lord Narasimha; and tried his best to pacify. But the situation had started worsening and the Lord Veerabhadra had turned towards the Lord Shiva. At that time, everyone saw to their dis-belief that a very powerful light equivalent to the level of 1000 crore Sun had started emerging in that place.

Lord Shiva had taken a new avatar named "Lord Sarabeswarar" with  a mix of an animal, a bird and a human. The new avatar of Lord Shiva had 8 legs, 4 hands, 3 eyes, nose of a bird called "Saraba"; and half the body of an animal "Yali" (the animal "Yali" was considered as very powerful as per Hindu Religious texts); and half the body of a human with Lion head; the with two powerful wings as "Goddess Prathyankaradevi" and "Goddess Saraba Sulini Durga". 

 Lord Sarabeswarar took the Lord Narasimha and hugged him so tightly and tried to calm down Lord Narasimha. Lord Sarabeswarar was successful in controlling the anger and ferocity of the Lord Narasimhar by removing the polluted content away from the blood of Lord Narasimha by pressing His sharp nails on Lord Narasimha; thus the bad part in the blood had evaporated. Once the polluted contents and posionous contents were removed, the Lord Narasimha started to attain his original position. The efforts of Lord Sarabeswarar was helped by "Goddess Prathyankaradevi" and "Goddess Saraba Sulini Durga" by blowing cool air around the Lord Narasimha. Thus the Lord Sarabeswarar cleared all the health problems that had been created earlier by the problems in the blood. 

5. You can donate Rose water, Sandalwood powder, turmeric powder, coconut water (or) honey to perform "Abhishek" (Abhishekam) in the temple.

6. You must complete a Puja in the name of the Person (who has problems with his/her blood) with his/her Birth Star and Rasi (Moon Sign) by purchasing coconut, banana (2), flowers, agarbatti (incense sticks), betel leaves and nuts. 

7. You must take back the Pooja ingredients back to your house, after the completion of Puja. 

8. Spread (or) place the flower on the main door entrance; and must remove it safely on the next day morning (the flower should not be allowed to rot (or) should not be thrown on the road). 

9. Use the coconut for cooking purposes; (or) eat along with bananas/betel nut & leaves. 

10. Continue the process for a minimum of 9 weeks (or) you can even do it for a longer period of time. 

11. You would see a marked improvement on the physical health of the person, who had been affected by the blood related diseases (or) disorders. 

 Important Guidelines:

1. You must take head bath on all 9 (or) more Sundays while doing Pariharam.

2. All the family members including the person (for whom the Pariharam is being done) must take head bath; and must remain bodily and mentally clean on the days that the rituals are being done.

Astrological Guide to clear your debts (Alternate Method):

In earlier posts, we have studied the various options available from the Hindu Vedic Astrology to clear the debts. Now, we are going to learn another method that helps the person or a entire family to come out of their debts.

You must understand that there are 2 temples being constructed 1000's of year ago by the Chola Kings that are exclusively dedicated to clear the debts.

1. Lord Sara Parameswarar temple at Thirucherai: 

This particular temple is located between Kumbakonam and Tiruvarur (Central Tamilnadu). The Presiding deity is Lord Sara Parameshwarar (Lord Shiva) and Goddess Gnanavalli. The Runa (Debts) Vimo-Chana (Relief) Lingam is located inside the temple. This particular Lingam is specifically installed to clear the debts of every human who are born in this world. The Runa Vimochana Lingaeswarar will give you immense relief from your debts

2. Thiyagaraja Swamy Temple, Tiruvarur:

This particular temple is also more than 1000 years old and was built by Chola Kings. This particular temple is loacted at Tiruvarur (a town in Central Tamilnadu). There are two Lingam in the temple @ Rana (wounds) Vimo-chana (Relief) Lingam and Runa (Debts) Vimo-Chana (Relief) Lingam. Rana Vimochana Lingaeswarar will give immense relief from your illness and Runa Vimochana Lingaeswarar will give you immense relief from your debts.

What is Debts?

Debts are classified into 3 types.

1. Deva Runa (Debts to Gods)
2. Rishi Runa (Debts to Sages or Gurus)
3. Pithru Runa (Debts to ancestors)

One must understand that a person can't come out of his/her life cycle, if they fail to clear all these debts during their lifetime. Let me explain these issues with an example.

1. If a person makes a vow before the God to get something done in his life and fails to fulfill his/her promises, the God will make him/her to be born again and again till he/she fulfills his/her earlier promises. This is called as Deva Runa.

2. If a Person fails to keep his/her promises with their Guru's (genuine one only), then he/she may have to fulfill their commitments in their re-births.

3. If a Person fails to do Pithru Tharpanam and Shraddham to satisfy their dead ancestors, then they would go through the re-birth to complete their task.

If a person fails to fulfill his/her promises or cheats others (money, marriage, properties or commitments), then this person will have to born again to complete the task. That is, the Person will be surrounded by the affected peoples in the form of wife, husband, children, relatives, friends, neighbours, business partners, known or unknown peoples during the current lifetime. Thus you need to settle down every obligations before you complete your lifetime. Everyone must understand that any unfinished commitments would get carried over to your next birth.

Hence worshipping the Runa Vimochana Lingaeswarar would helps you to clear all your debts including your financial debts.

Methods to worship Runa Lingaeswarar (to everyone in this world):

1. Go to any temple (near your place) and do a puja to Lord Ganesh. Pray to him that you are about to start a Parihara methods to clear your debts. Pray to Lord Ganesh that he must give necessary strength both physically and mentally, Pray to God that he guards your Pariharam to go without any interruptions in the middle. Pray to Lord Ganesh that He helps you to finish your Pariharam to bring the desired results.

2. Then worship Lord Shiva. Tell Him that you regard the Lord Shiva (one, whom you worship in your place) as Runa Vimochana Lingeswarar.

3. Place your geneuine demands. Please be careful about what you ask. The Lord Shiva is always fond of playing with his devotees. If you do not know how to ask him, just pray to Lord Shiva that "You know my problems. As a Father, You please take care of Your little children".

4. You must do worship for the Lord Shiva for 11 weeks.

5. Go to Lord Shiva temple on every Monday evening between 4.30 to 6.00 PM in the evening. This particular puja is called as "Somavar Puja". During this time Lord Shiva would be very happy with Goddess Parvathi. The Abhisekam with the raw rice powder to the Lord Shiva is the key for successfully reducing the debts.

6. Take with you raw Rice powder and offer it to the God. The priest will do Abisekham with your raw rice powder. People who are living in North India, just mix the raw rice powder with water. Pour the mix on the Lingam and offer flower and pray (as per your customs). People who do not have access to temples to pray, can keep the Lingam in their own Puja rooms and do the rituals by yourself. We will write the conditions and precautions to be taken for keeping Lingam in our Puja house in our next posts.

7. You can also offer (any one or any combinations) Milk, Curd, Honey, Tender coconut water, Sandalwood paste, Lime Juice, Sugarcane Juice, Holy Ash, Rose water, Turmeric Powder and Fruits mixed with Jaggery (country made sugar).

8. You must avoid non-vegetarian foods, alocholic drinks, any form of drugs, sexual thoughts or activities, harsh words, anger, jealousness and any unethical or immoral thoughts or practices. This is an important factor in fructifying your demands.

9. If you want you can fast. During that time, you can eat fruits, fruit juices, drinks based on Milk, uncooked vegetables or Coconut, beaten rice mixed with Milk. You can skip your regular meal in the night and adjust it with the above mentioned menu.

10. Chant the "Om Nama Sivya Namaho" any number of times during the 11 weeks periods.

11. If possible, do a Puja on every Monday on your name by telling your Rasi and Nakshatra. If not atleast do it on the concluding day.

You will really see a complete relief from your debts after the completion of 11 weeks of Prayer to Lord Shiva. When your demands are met, you are advised to visit the Lord Saraparameshwarar Temple at Thirucherai and deliver a special prayer of thanks to Lord Runa Vimochana Lingaeswarar.


1. Do not do e-archanas, as they will increase your problems.

2. Do not ask anyone to do the Pariharam on your behalf (like Parents, wife or an employee). This will further increase your burden.

3. You should not develop any pessimism in the middle of your Pariharam.

How to safeguard your marriage life?

The word "Kalathiram" denotes the life partner. Hence the phrase "Kalathira Dosham" actually indicates the troubles lies ahead in the marital relationship between the Couples. Given below are the remedies to avoid facing any marital discard between the Couples.

1. The following are the rituals to be performed by the Boy or the Girl who has Kalathira Dosham in their horoscope. This ritual must be done before the actual Marriage itself.

2. The person who has identified with the Kalathira Dosham must be performed a marriage ceremony with Banana Stone.

3. A temple has been dedicated to eradicate the "Kalathira Dosham" is loacted near Trichy (Central Tamilnadu)

4. Lord Sri Gilivaneshwarar Temple located in a small village called Thirupaichungili. The small village is located 24 kms away from Trichy and 4 kms away from an important small township called Mannachanallur (which is an important market for Rice). The village is located on the North Western side of the Trichy town.

5. The Kalathira Dosham Pariharam is also called as Thirumana Dosha Pariharam.

6. The Best day for conducting this Pariharam is either on Friday or Sunday. The Best time for conducting this Pariharam is between 9 am to 12 Noon.

7. The Temple authorities have fixed Rs.500/- as the fees for conducting this rituals. The amount can be paid across the counter and everyone will be guided by the guides who are specifically instructed to do this job. (The information is updated in July 2016)

8. The temple authorities conduct the marriage rituals in the Kathali Vanam (a specifc place inside the temple with many banana trees). You will be guided and assisted by the Purohits for completing the rituals.

9. After completing this rituals, you will be guided to worship the Lord Shiva and Parvathi Amman.

10. You may have to pay a small amount both to the Purohits (who conducted the marriage) and the guide, who has taken you around the temple.

11. You can also donate some amount to participate in the "Anna Dhanam" (Feeding the Needy). The temple authorities provide free food to poor people on daily basis.

Importance of Doing the Kalathira Dosha Pariharam in the Lord Gilivanaeshwarar temple:

Once Lord Shiva was doing penance at this particular place. Goddess Parvathi also wanted to join this Penance. During those time, this particular place was barren and empty. Hence Goddess Parvathi had converted the heavenly Angels (who are considered ever as Virgins) into banana trees to give shade and beauty to the entire area.

The word Gili means banana in tamil. Vanam means forest in Tamil. Thus the Lord Shiva is called Gilivanaeshwarar meaning that the Lord Shiva in the midst of banana tree forest. Lord Shiva is also called as "Kathalivanaeshwarar". Here also the word "Kathali" refers to a banana family.

Hence it is assumed that the banana trees (Kathali meaning banana) standing within the temple premises are considered to be the living heavenly angels. Thus a marriage getting solemnized with a banana tree is actually a boy or girl getting married to a heavenly angel (who is a virgin) at the initial level.

When the actual marriage that takes place with their loved ones, the Boy or Girl actually gets into a wedlock for the second time @ marriage with the Kathali being the first marriage. Thus their "Kalathira Dosham" gets rectified.

Let us see the methods of removing Kalathira Dosham, if a marriage is happend already in our subsquent posts.

Lord Thayumanavar Swamy Temple, Trichy

The presiding deity is called as the Lord Chevvanthi Nathar (Lord Shiva) and Goddess Mattuvar Kulalammai (Goddess Parvathi). The Lord Chevvanthi Nathar was called as the "Thayum-mana-var Swamy" meaning "He who become the Mother".

How the Lord Shiva becomes the Mother?

Long ago, Rathina Guptan, a merchant trading in valuable gems was living near Poompuhar, a coastal town loacted in Tamilnadu. He was extremely rich but very devout worshipper of Lord Shiva. He had helped number of Saivite institutions and also helped many Lord Shiva deities. Lord Shiva blessed him with a beautiful girl child Rathinavathi. When she attained her age, he married his daughter to Dhana Guptan, who was living on the foothills of rocky terrain that carries the famous Lord Chevvanthi Nathar temple. The temple was loacted atop the rocky hill. Dhana Guptan was also a staunch Lord Shiva devotee. Hence both the couples Rathinavathi and Dhana Guptan used to worship Lord Chevvanthi Nathar and Goddess Mattuvar Kulalammai on daily basis by offering various Pujas.

Due to this, the Rathinavathi conceived a child in her womb. But the Couple never missed a day to pray Lord Chevvanthi Nathar. When the day neared for the child delivery, the Mother of the Rathinavathi started her journey towards Trichy. Those days there were no transports, roads and bridges to travel. When the Mother of the Rathinavathi reached the northern banks of Cauvery river, the river was over flowing with flood water. Hence the boatmen can not take the peoples accross the river. Hence the Rathinavathi Mother had to wait in the northern banks of the river for the night. Here Rathinavathi was having Labour pain to child delivery in her house, which was loacted in the Souther banks of river cauvery.

But Lord Chevvanthi Nathar itself came to Rathinavathi's house in the guise of the Rathinavathi's Mother. The Lord ensured that the Rathinavathi faced no agony or pain. The Lord Chevvanthi Nathar ensured the safety of both the Rathinavathi and her new born child for the whole night. When the boatman arranged to cross the River Cauvery in the early Morning, the original Mother also came to her daughter Rathinavathi's house.

Now, everyone was confused and surprised by seeing two women having the resemblance of Rathinavathi's Mother. The Lord Chevvanthi Nathar resembling the Rathinavathi's mother had disappeared. To everyone's surprise, the Lord Chevvanthi Nathar along with Goddess Mattuvar Kulalammai appeared in the Skies. They were surrounded by Lord Ganesh, Lord Muruga, Lord Vishnu, Lord Brahma and along with Indira and those residing in the Deva Loga. The Lord Chevvanthi Nathar and everyone went inside the temple.

Thus the Lord Chevvanthi Nathar was called as the "Thayum-Anavar" in tamil meaning that "He who becomes the Mother".

Suggestions for Girls, who wish to conceive and wish to have smooth delivery of the child (along with the safety and wellbeing of Mother and the newborn):

1. Make a wish within your mind to Lord Thayumanavar Swamy.

2. Worship Lord Thayumanavar on daily basis by worshipping in your house during the time of pregnancy and also before conceiving.

3. Chant this following Mantra (atleast 9 times or 108 times in a day):

Hae Sankara, Samara-hara, Bra-matha-thi Nathaa,
Maana-tha, Samba, Sasi-suda, Hara, Tri-Sulin
Sambo, Sukap-prasavak-ruth, Pavamae, Dhayalao,
Sree Mathru-budha, Siva, Palaya-maam, Namasthae:

ஹே சங்கர, ஸ்மரஹர, பிரமாதி நாதா, 
மன்னாத, ஸாம்ப, சசிசூட, ஹர, த்ரிசூலின்,
ஸ்ம்போ ஸ்கப்பிரசவக்ருத், பவமே, தயாளோ,
ஸ்ரீ மாத்ருபூத, சிவ, பாலயாமாம், நமஸ்தே:

ஹே சங்கர, ஸ்மரஹர, பிரமாதி நாதா, 
மன்னாத, ஸாம்ப, சசிசூட, ஹர, த்ரிசூலின்,
ஸ்ம்போ ஸ்கப்பிரசவக்ருத், பவமே, தயாளோ,
ஸ்ரீ மாத்ருபூத, சிவ, பாலயாமாம், நமஸ்தே:

4. After you enjoy trouble free Child delivery and gifted with the wonderful child, please you must visit the temple along with your husband, newborn and your family members.

5. There would be a cradle in the temple itself. You must put the newborn baby in the cradle

6. You must bring bunch of bananas as your humble offerings to Lord Thayumanavar Swamy and must thank him.

7. You can do Puja or Abisekham or arrange for Annadhanam (anyone or all) 

Lord Chevvanthi Nathar would take role of the Mother as Thayumanavar to the new born baby by every kind of blessing during the entire lifetime.

Temple's Architechture:

It is a feast to our eye sights. This maginficient temple is a 3 tier storey temple built naturally on the rocks. You would wonder about the manner that it had been built before 1500 years back. The Lingam, sanctum and sanctorium and Mandapam are all built by excavating the rocks itself. The temple is loacted in the heart of Tiruchirappalli or Trichy which is in the central Tamilnadu.

Shani Parihara Temple

Sri Dharparanyeswarar Temple is the oldest temple built by Chola Kings meant for easing out the troubles of Lord Saneeswarar. 

In Tamil Nadu, the Chola Kings had constructed nine different Shiva temples that are capable of removing the doshas created by the nine planets before 1000 of years ago. Let us find out the important temple that can remove the Shani doshas. The presiding deity here is Lord Shiva and has the name as Dharbaranyeswarar. Those days, there were Dharbai (a grass, which are considered as scared) all around in the area. Since the Temple is loacated in the midst of Dharbai (a grass), the Lord Shiva is called as Lord Dharbaranyeswarar. 

Let us find the story behind the Temples importance in deleting the bad effects of Shani.

Once upon a time, a King named Nala was ruling his country with great dedication, courage and compassion. He was a righteous person, who never deviated from his truthfulness. Even the Devas and Saints were appreciative of his character and his management of his county's affairs. King Nala was married to Princess Damayanthi, who was considered as very beautiful and has all the good qualities and character to posses. Hence the Couple lived and remained blessed in every spheres of life.

The Lord Shani wanted to test the righteousness of the King Nala and wanted to prove his truthfulness to the World. The 7 1/2 years period of Shani (Shani Sade Sati or Elarai Shani) had descended on the King Nala. He had lost his wealth and power to his brother and was forced to live in the forest along with his wife Damayanthi. That is, the King Nala became a pauper within a matter of minutes. He went through agony and trauma during the entire 7 1/2 years period of his life. He also got separated from his wife too. Even in the worst period of his life, he never deviated from his truthfulness.

Finally, he came to the Thirunallar, where the temple was located. He took head bath in a small pond, that is loacted in the northern side of temple. After wearning a new cloth, the Nala entered into the Lord Dharbarayaneswarar Temple to have a darshan of Lord Shiva. Lord Shani also trailed behind the Nala. The Lord Shiva banished the Lord Shani from enterning into the Temple and thus the Lord Shani was stay put in the area between the 1st and 2nd entrance of the Temple (even now). Lord Shiva removed all the curse and Nala became the King Nala and got back his wife and all his wealth.

Lord Shiva asked the King Nala, whether he has any desires to fulfilled. Then the King Nala had prayed to Lord Shiva that whoever visits the temple by taking bath in the pond and pray to the Lord Dharbarayaneswarar should also get back the same benefits (like King Nala) and must also be blessed by the Lord Shiva.

The Lord Shiva granted his wish and offered to fulfill another wish. King Nala requested that the Lord Shani present in the temple should not remain malefic (as per the Lord Shani's orginal character) and should remain benefice always. Lord Shiva had granted the second wish too. Thus the malefic nature of Lord Shani was removed in this Temple. Thus the Lord Shani ought to do the benefits to everyone, who prays to Lord Shani after praying to Lord Shiva. Hence the Lord Shani present in this particular temple remained benefice.

The pond that exists in the outerside of the Temple is called as "Nala Theerth". The Readers are advised to follow the guidelines, while visiting the Temples.

1. You must stay atleast a day (preferably overnight) in the Temple itself. There are plenty of space avaialble inside the Temple. (OR) you can stay in some Lodges located in this town.

2. You must take head bath in the pond. Please note that all your body and the clothes (that you wear) must be wet.

3. You must remove all your clothes or any jewellery or divine twines into the water itself . Hence remove the jewellery before you take a dip.

Warning: If anybody take bath with any clothes or jewellery or any type of materials that are worn around their body, then those articles/clothes/jewellery must be removed into the water (while taking bath). If they carry any type of materials with their body after completing the bath would bound to be badly affected. That is, all the Shani doshas that had been left over by others will come along with the person, who do not adhere to this guidelines.

4. You can ask your family members or friend to surround with other clothes (when you remove you clothes).

5. You must remove the wetness from the body by using a dry towel. After leaving the Pond, don't look back at the "Nala Theerth".

6. You must make sure that you are completely dry (head & body) before entering the temple.

7. You can wear new or clean clothes, while entering the Temple.

8. You must start to worship Lord Ganesha, Lord Muruga, Lord Shiva and Goddess Sakthi (in that order) and must pray to Lord Shiva to eminiate the Shani dosha for the rest of your life.

9. You must worship or do Puja to Lord Shani at the end, before leaving the temple.

Note: You shouldn't revisit the Nala Theerth again or take bath (second time) after completing this ritual. You must immediately return back to your native place (You should not break journey or visit anyother place or even temples).

Which is the best place to do Pariharam?

The Pallava King of Kanjeevaram (Kanchipuram, which is 60 kms from Chennai) had decided to construct a magnificent temple for Lord Shiva. He held discussed with his ministers, artisians and spritual peoples on the constructions of the temple. He gave many instructions on the shape, size, design and locations on constructing many part of the temples on elaborate basis. The King brought all his dream into reality by getting everyone's cooperation within his kingdom. He had spent all his resources at his disposal to construct a magnificent temple in his life time.

At the same time, Pusalar, a small farm worker from Tiruniravoor (30 Kms from Kanchipuram and near to Chennai) was also dreaming about building a temple for Lord Shiva. The Pusalar's meagre income was not even sufficient to feed himself. But the dream of building a magnificient temple had not gone away from the Pusalar's mind. The Pusalar had also planned a magnificent design for his dream temple and scanned every inches in detail within his mind. The dream temple also had mandapam, ponds, garden, gopurams, kitchen and many other wonderful facilities for the Lord Shiva.

Both the King and the Pusalar had almost reached the completion of the constructions of their respective temples. Both of them had fixed an auspicious day (same day) for the Maha Kumbhabiseham (Installation of the deity). The Pallava King had started making elaborate arrangements to make the Maha Kumbhabiseham a grand success. There was celebrations all over the Pallava Kingdom. No one noticed or ever know about the dream temple being built by the Pusalar and also ready for Maha Kumbabiseham.

Few days before the Maha Kumbabiseham, the Pallava King had dream during his sleep. Lord Shiva appeared on the dream and asked the king to postpone his Kumbabiseham and fix another date for it. The Lord had informed the King about his intention of attending the Maha Kumbabiseham of another new temple being built by one Thiru.Pusalar within his Kingdom.

The King was disappointed and informed the public about his dream. He had then directed to his officials to find out "Who is Pusalar?" and "Where the new temple is being built?" and also "What is the importance of that temple over the temple built by him?".

The Officials went in all directions and returned with the news about the Pusalar. "The Pusalar was an ordinary farm worker" and there was no temple being built by Pusalar within his Kingdom. Then entourage of the King went and met the Pusalar and informed him about his dream. There upon the Pusalar told the King that new temple indeed was being built within his mind.

The Pallava King had realized the truth. He had then realized the value of true love towards the God. The Temple built by the Pallava King has been dedicated to Lord Masilamaneeswarar and Goddess Kodiyidai Amman. The temple has been located in the Thirumullaivayal, north - western outskirts of Chennai on the main road connecting Chennai - Avadi - Thiruvallur.

CONCLUSION: If your mind is sacred as the sanctum santorum of a temple, then the God would always love to be there. Hence the readers are advised to realize that your pariharam would have a lasting impact based on your closeness to the God. The Pariharam does not hold any value, if it is weighed with money, place or the power. The love and affection towards the God would have a huge impact on the pariharam, no matter how much you spend and where and how you do the pariharam.

Thiru.Pusalar is one of the 63 Nayanmars who has the previlige of staying within the Shiva temple. These 63 Nayanmars have been revered for the love, affection and unflinching loyalty to the Lord Shiva even now.
