Thiruvengadu Sthala varalaru, doshams and remedial measures
Meikandar Acchuthagapanar bathed in the three
tanks, worshipped Thiruvengadar and he was blessed with a child.
This child came to be known as Meikandar and became the chief of
Pattinathuadigal Thiruvengadar, the son of
Sivanesan and Gnanambigai, with the blessings of a Siva Muni
received Siva Ditchai and a Siva Linga and came to be called
Indran Indran to make remedies for his sin of
having killed Virudhasuran, worshipped Lord Thiruvengadar &
was absolved of his sins.
Iravadam Sage Durvasar gifted a mala to Indran.
Indran, in his vanity threw it on his white elephant Iravadam
which stamped the mala under its feet. Durvasar cursed Indran to
turn into a wild elephant. Indran realising his folly formed a
tank (Thadagam) in Thiruvengadu and worshipped a Siva Linga. He
was blessed by Lord Siva and absolved of his sins and reached
Vedarasi, a brahmin had placed his bundle of food
in the hollow of a tree. A snake residing in the hollow, spewed
poison on the food. Unaware of this, Vedarasi gave this food to a
vedic priest, who died of the poison. This brahmin was absolved
of his Brahmahathi Dosham by worshipping Lord Siva of
Suwedakedu Suwedakedu on realising that he was
destined to die in his eighth year, reached Thiruvengadu and
performed Siva pooja. As soon as he saw Yama, he held on to the
Siva Linga tightly. Yama on seeing Thiruvengadar, ran away in
fear and died. On the request of the Devas, the Lord brought Yama
back to life.
