Here Lord Gopala Krishnan give dharsan along with his wives Rukmani
and Satyabhama. Vishwaksenar the chief of the Nithyasuri's was the
son of Kundalai and Lord Varuna (Rain god). Kundalai was sent to
disturb the penance of Saint Dhuruvasa by Lord Indra was gained
his curse. So, she was born as a hunter's daughter and married pathiran
a hunter. One day Lord Varuna loved her and as a result she bore
Vishwaksenar as her child.
Later by his hard penance he was made the chief of Nithyasuri's
the good spirit's who live in Pramapatha and who are always near
Lord Narayana. He wished to have dharsan of Lord Narayana as Lord
Krishna and fulfilled his wish here. Rudran was caught by Brahma
Hathi dhosam, an evil spell as he killed Lord Brahma. To over come
this he prayed the Lord at Kadamba kshetram, Kantiyur and here at
this place got rid of his problem.
To gain the love of god, its enough if we do our duties correctly.
Vishwaksenar and Rudran both were fully satisfied before having
dharsan of this Lord and did not requested him anything. So Lord
gave his blessing happily as he had said in Bhagavat git that if
you do your duties without expecting anything from me, I would give
all the necessary for you without your request.
