வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம்


As is widely known, Sri Maha Periyava’s heart virtually would bleed whenever He thought of Sivalingams that are not even covered.  And there were more than a hundred of வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம் (i.e., Siva Lingams with no roof over Their Heads) just in and around Kanchipuram.  Sri Maha Periyava would insist that at least a thatched shed should protect the all-protecting Lord Shiva from the hot sun, rain, and other harsh elements of weather.

 

Sri Maha Periyava guided the highly respected Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal to do Maha Abhishekams, on every Diwali day, to all such வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம்’s in and around Kanchi.  Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal would make nice sweet Maha Prasadhams, buy gingly oil, new vastrams, pushpam and various other diravyams for Maha Abhishekam, etc.  Under the Divine guidance and further encouragement of Jagadguru HH Sri Pudhu Periyava, Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal continues to do this Shiva Maha Kaingaryam to over 140 such வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம்’s even to this day.  These days, such Diwali pujas are done in a more organized manner with Sri Matam’s help – over 7-8 autorickshaws, each with a team of three or four individuals, split the total set of வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம்’s and complete Sri Periyavaa’s orders on every Diwali day.

In addition, Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal takes care of several other dilapidated and sparsely visited Shiva Temples around Kanchi, including the one worshipped by கல் எறிந்த சாக்கிய நாயனார் (Sri Saakiya Naayanar who threw stones at  Shiva Lingam as a form of Puja).  Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal has compiled a book listing over 260 Shiva Temples even today in and around Kanchi.

It is this same Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal’s Vedic chants and  maha thapas, backed by  Sri Maha Periyava’s Divine Sankalpam and Sri Pudhu Periyavaa’s Divine Guidance, bore fruit: the Kubera Lingam, dug out of most repulsive and disgusting setting, and being restored to its original divine powers.  The following photo displays Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal at the time of the Bhoomi Puja to this outstanding Kshetram right in Kanchipuram.  Please call SriDhandapaani Stapati 99522 27007 for precise directions to visit this great Kshetram being restored to its original glory by the Vedhic powers of Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal.

How fitting that Sri Maha Periyava chose Sivasri Rajappa Gurukkal, who has been taking care of all these scores of வானம் பார்த்த சிவலிங்கம்’s around Kanchi for all these years, to play the instrumental Vedic role in the resurrection of the Kubera Lingam from ThrEdha Yugam!

  3. Dear sir,
    Thank you very much for narrating in English. Other wise folks like me would not know the greatness of this Maha lingam and would have missed the opportunity to be part of this effort.

    Thanks a million.

    Thanks,

  5. In fact, I was taken aback when I read the information about Kubhera Lingam.
    It is because of Maha Periyava’s Blessings, the temple is coming up and we
    all must join in its completion.
