Saligrama Mahimai – 06 (Sacred Facts about Saligrama – 06)

There are many Puranas which describe the Origination of Saligrama. Let us talk about One such Purana which has been advised by Nampermal (Arangan) to speak out…!

Back to Topic….Once Lord Brahma has a genuine concern about the increasing strength of sinners and got sweat in his Chin and Throat. The Sweat which dropped from his Throat, transformed as a woman named “Kandaki” (Kanda – Throat) Kandaki vigorously meditated and Lord Brahma appeared before her. She asked a boon that all the Devas should be born as her children. Brahma Categorically refused it. Kandki went of anger. She Cursed all devas to become as worms/ insects. Devas gave a reply back cursed as to transform Kandaki as Jalahubee.(water Format).
The confronting rivalry was going on for sometime and hence became violence. Finally they decided getting into Sriman Narayanan’s Lotus Feet and pleaded for mercy and way out from these Cruses. The LORD told that it is not possible to take back the Cruses (Remember the same Phrase in Tirukural as well. Once said in words, cannot be taken back….. This also implies that only Arangan’s Lotus Feet is the only way to get surrendered)

But LORD Narayanan gave a way out. He said, “Two of my Bhaktas will born and attain Moksha as Elephant and Crocodile in this place only. Once they are dead, you get birth as worms named VajraKeedam in their remains. Kandaki will originate as a River. Miles Away from here, there is a Place called as Chakra Theertham where I reside as well. The Substance which is found there is called as “Dwaraka Chakra”. You should hide in the stones of the mountain and live in Kandaki River there. By this gesture, Kandaki’s wish will also be fulfilled. One who worships those Substances where you will be residing and got converted as Saligrama and Dwaraka Chakra will be attaining Moksha.” saying this LORD disappeared.
