Shobha(usha) gowri Tirukkudandai (Kumbhakonam)
Sarangapani and Komalavalli
The sheer size of the gopurams is awesome-150 ft high.The temple is in the form of a chariot and the Lord in Ananthasayana.
Here one an see the feet of the Lord which in Srirangam is kept covered.
Once again stories with a message:that when Bhrigu muni entered Vaikuntham; and out of arrogance kicked Vishnu on his chest, at having not been recognized and welcomed. The Lord though got up and quickly touched the munis feet and asked for pardon.
Lakshmi of course was furious.She was the one that lived in his heart and she was doubly angry the Lord was now serving an arrogant muni.She left for earth and settled on the banks of the Kumbhakonam tank. Bhrigu muni was reborn as Hema Rishi, and offered penance; Lakshmi was reborn as his daughter, in the Mahamagam lotus tank, and he offered her in marriage to Sarangapani. Vishnu, bears the sarangam bow in his hand.
When Lakshmi left the house ,all of Vaikundam became dark and the Lord sets out to bring her back.
Many temples in India therefore focussed man-woman relationships ,love that transcended and transformed and love that was spiritual
