Saptha Vidanga Sthalam – Shiva Temples
Saptha Vidanga Sthalam – Shiva Temples
In the Vidanga sanctuaries there will be a Thyagarajar moorthi. It is the Saha Umaa Skandha (for the most part called Soomaaskandha) type of Lord Shiva. The Thyagarajar moorthi came out of the inhale(uchisvasam) and exhale(nichisvasam) of Maha Vishnu performing Ajaba Nadanam. At first this moorthi was loved by Maha Vishnu, and he got a wonderful child Manmadha. Later he offered it to Brahma and he offered it to Indra. Indra revered the moorthi for quite a while.
Muchukunda Chakravarthi, who had the essence of monkey, was an incredible and valorous Chola lord. He was once drawn closer by Indra for help during the war among Devas and Asuras. Muchukunda readily consented to help the ruler of the Devas, and participated in the war. At long last, with Muchukunda’s guide, the Devas prevailing with regards to steering the Asuras, and Indra was amazingly appreciative to the lord. He offered his preferred lord an endowment, and Muchukunda, an ardent man, requested the Thyagarajar moorthi revered by Indra. Indra was paralyzed. He would not like to leave behind his valuable moorthi, yet the lord wouldn’t acknowledge whatever else. He at long last settled on a misleading, so he requested to make six comparable moorthis and asked Muchukunda to discover the one he needed.
Muchukunda was a brilliant lord, and appealed to Shiva to recognize the right one and found the first moorthi. So Indra gave him all the seven moorthis to Muchukunda. Muchukunda kept those moorthis in seven sanctuaries which are called Saptha (seven) Vidanga sanctuaries. (Every one of these sanctuaries are in Tamil Nadu and arranged around Thanjavur.)
Muchukunda came back to earth with the seven Thyagarajar moorthis and introduced them at different places in his realm. The first one he kept at the sanctuary at Thiruvarur, and the others at Thirunallar, Vedaranyam, Thiruvaimur, Thrirukaravasal, Thirukkuvalai and Nagapattinam. These seven sanctuaries are all things considered known as Saptha Vidanga Sthalams. Vidanga implies something that has not been etched out. These seven Thyagarajar moorthi are accepted to be divine – not made by etches.
Saptha vidanga Sthalam Map:
Ordinarily, Soomaaskandhar type of Shiva will come out of the sanctuary during utsavams (celebrations). Yet, since the Thyagarajar is the pradana (principle) moorthi in these sanctuaries, he won’t go out during celebrations. So the Chandrasekara type of Shiva will go out on utsavams. This Thyagarajar moorthi won’t have abhishegam on all days. Thus, the Shivaperuman himself gave a piece of his bow moon fit as a fiddle of lingams for playing out the nithya (every day) poojas for Thyagarajar as his delegate.
Normally, it is the top bit of the lingam – the oval which is accepted to be swayambhu. The base – avudayar-is made by hand. In all these seven lingams, the entire lingam – the base just as the top segment – structure a solitary piece, and are accepted to have showed up only a similar way, without being made. All the seven lingams are of various sizes, however they are made of a similar material – maragatham – or emerald. Be that as it may, it looks more like Jade than emerald, as it is translucent. The greatest one is at Thirunallar, while the one at Thiruvarur is of medium size.

- Thiruvarur –Veedhi Vidangar – Ajapa Natanam
The first Veedhi Vidangar was introduced by Muchukunda chakravarti at Thiruvarur. Thyagaraja is related with the ajaba nadanam. The ajaba mantra is “hamsa – soham”. It is the voiceless, quiet japa spoke to by inward breath and exhalation of breath. Thyagaraja is said to play out this move on the chest of Vishnu who is in yoganidra. This controlled breath is known to yogis.
In Thiruvarur, the night abhishekam is alluded to as Saya rakshapuja and Indra himself is accepted to come here with all the devas regularly during this time, to lead the pooja.

Shiva is loved as Kayaroganeswarar. Here, the move resembles the rushes of the sea – villathi nadanam. Kadal alai konjiyum varum, seeriyum varum. The waves can be delicate and energetic, or they can be wild and seething. At the point when the divinity is taken on a parade in a pallak, the individuals who convey the pallak authorize these move developments – the developments of waves in a sea. Thus Nataraja’s move at this sthalam looks like waves – little waves and huge waves. The individuals who convey the pallak would realize the method with regards to how to organize every one of their developments to achieve this move movement.

6. Thiruvaymur – Nila Vidangar, “Kamala Nadanam”
Shiva is as vaimur nathar. This is where Lord Shiva welcomed Thirunavukkarasar saying “thiruvaimurukku va”. The move looks like the progressive blooming of a lotus blossom. The blooming occurs from the inward to the external. At the point when they acquire the divinity the pallak, they do so following the development of a blooming lotus – from beneath to above. They don’t convey the divinity at a quick pace. The move is moderate, since it takes after a lotus influencing smoothly to a delicate breeze.
