Malai Naatu Divya Desams
Malai Naatu Divya Desams - Visit April 2013
Radha and I were blessed to visit few Divya Desams during our recent trip to India in April. We are sharing this in the hope this may provide some ideas and guidance for anyone planning to do the same.
In the 2 weeks we were blessed to pray at the following temples:
History of Varkalai
In times of yore, Lord Brahma came to the earth to perform a Yaga (fire Sacrifice). He did it in the present Varkala. He was so much immersed in doing Yaga that he forgot his job of creation. Lord Vishnu came to Varkala to remind Lord Brahma about it in the form of a very old man. The Brahmins assisting Lord Brahma, received the old man and gave him food.
