Must-read story about Kubhera Lingam from thredha yugam

I came to know about this lingam couple of months back….When I heard the story of this, it was pretty tearful to know the mahatmiyam of this lingam and the current state. At that point, I was not aware of the link to this lingam to Mahaperiyava.

Here is the small write up from HH Kuvalaikkal Swamigal describing the link to Mahaswami.

Here is the small narration about this lingam for folks who can’t read Tamil…

Location is Thirukkalimedu, north of Indra theertham. Thirukkalimedu is also called “satya vratha kshetram”. This lingam belongs to thredha yuga and worshipped by Lord Bhudan and Lord Vayu and various other mahans. This ageless lingam over a period of time, started going under the water and mud. After a period of time, even sewage water started mixing up and poured over this maha lingam. What a tragedy?! In 1978 Mahaperiyava when saw few kids playing on top of this lingam, tried to bring this up and restore it – but due to various reasons, it could not be done. Besides, he took the mud from that place and put it on His head saying that this is not a mud but viboothi as Swami is right here….. The sankalpam to restore the lingam started then. Lots and lots of tireless efforts were made by several few sincere Shiva devotees. They approached the landlord who owned this place. Originally they refused to give the land. After continuous negotiation, now the lingam has been recovered successfully along with the whole land from the landlord. Restoring was not that easy – the team approached some namboodhiris to check astrologically – there were few more complications before any effort could be made. After doing all the pariharams, the lingam was recovered…..Now this small team is working on constructing a temple for this maha lingam. Mahaperiyava’s sankalpam is coming to reality with His blessings….

Although I do not know all the folks, the main person who is tirelessly working is Shri Chandramouli, who administers our 2012 veda rakshana drive along with Sthapathi Shri Dhandapani with the blessings of HH Pudhu Periyava.

The team already collected some funds towards the construction of this temple and they need some more funds to complete this divine project. If anyone is interested, please contact Shri Chandramouli at – 994080033 / 9840556399. Knowing Mouli, it is hard to reach him on the phone as he travels a lot but pretty quick on email responses.

These photos bring tear to our eyes!
