Description
About the Book

Lord Siva known as Somasundara at the Madurai temple and the consort of goddess of Meenakshi, the crown princess of the Pandya kingdom, had enacted several miracles to save His devotees when they were faced with unsurmountable problems or to make known to the world the depth of their devotion to the Lord. Madurai, a major city in Tamil Nadu today, was the ancient capital of the Pandya kingdom; and today it continues to be a major pilgrimage centre, known for the architectural features of the temple and the beautiful sculptures, which adorn the structure.

The most important 64 miracles of Lord Siva were written down in Tamil by Paranjothi Adigal as “Thiruvilayadal Puranam”. Paranjothi Adigal was an army chieftain of the Pallava emperors and later gave it up to devote his time in the service of Lord Siva and His devotees. This Puranam also includes the appearance by baby Tadatakai (Meenakshi) from the sacrificial fire and her valourous exploits until she met Lord Siva. Like any other ancient stories events these miracles have been retold any number of times by different writers. Now for the benefit of youngers and even older people, who may not be familiar with these stories, they have been rewritten in simple English by Mr. N. Raghavan and Ms Lakshmi Venkaraman and published by Kalakshetra Publications. The colourful illustrations are by artist ‘Subha’.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
