There was an Asura, Kaumasura, who was doing penance to please Shiva and get a boon. To prevent him from asking for a boon, Devi Saraswati made him dumb (hence called Mookasur)
Later, Adi Parashakti slayed him and came to be called Mookambika.
It is said that Adi Shankaracharya had a vision in which Devi agreed to follow him provided he did not look back. He kept walking and was assured of her presence due to the sound of anklets. When he reached here in Kollur, he turned back as the sound of anklets had stopped.
So Devi stayed here and merged with the lingam. The place came to be called Mookambika Kshetram.
The linga has integrated on it’s left side MahaKali, Maha Lakshmi and Maha Saraswathi and on the right side- Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
A swarna rekha (gold line) divides this linga into left and right portion. Adi Shakthi in this Udhbhavlinga form appears only here.
Devi sits in padmasana and has 4 hands.
Adi Shankaracharya installed the Sri Chakra in front of Devi and also composed the Soundarya Lahiri here.

Here, Venkatkrishna-Parthasarthy is present with his entire family.
He is flanked by Sri Rukmini, Sri Balarama, Satyaki, son Pradyumn and grandson Anirudha.
It is said that on the request of Raja Sumathirajan, Sri Perumal appeared and stayed here as Arjun’s charioteer (Partha-sarathi).
He is without chakra as he had promised not to wield weapons in Mahabharata war.
The face has scars caused by Bhishma’s arrows on Arjun. Prabhu took the arrows on himself to protect Arjun.
The Naivedyam offered here does not have spices. Ghee is used in it to cure Prabhu’s wounds. Sarkarai Pongal is famous here.
It is said that Rishi Bhrigu found Devi Lakshmi (as Vedvalli) in Alli flower in the mandir pushkarini. Later, Sri Ranganatha came here to marry her.
One of the 9 Navagraha kshetram in TamilNadu with Shiva as Divine Doctor. His consort Thayyalnayaki Ambal stands with medicinal oil to cure diseases of the devotees.
The Kshetram is associated with Angaraka/ Chevvai (Mars).
Once, Chevvai/ Angarakan was struck by leprosy. He was cured here by Sri Vaitheeswaran.
People come here to get relief from Chevvai dosham caused by unfavourable position of Mars.
Also here, Shiva cured the injured army of Sri Subramanya during his war with Soorpadaman.
Devotees take bath in the Siddhamruta Theertham Tank to cure them of their diseases, especially skin diseases. It is also called Goksheera (Go is cow n ksheera is milk)Theertham, as Kamadhenu’s milk flowed in this tank when she performed milk abhishekam to the deity here.
It is believed that Rama and Lakshmana cremated Jatayu here.
The Nethrapidi Sandhanam and Thiruchandu Urundai are two of the prasadams which are believed to cure all ailments.
This is the nerve centre for Naadi Josiyam, a popular form of astrology (predictions on palm leaves)
Also called Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi which is celebrated after Navratri and Ramanavami.
Kamada signifies a grant of desires.
It is believed that observing vrat on this day fulfils worldly desires, cleanses the consciousness and nullifies curses.
Once, an Apsara Lalita and Gandharva Lalit served in the court of Bhagipur king Pundarika. One day due to the absence of his beloved Lalita, Gandharva Lalit could not perform well in the court and Pundarik got annoyed. He cursed Lalit to transform into an ugly demon
Lalita also went after Lalit in sorrow. Years passed and she reached Vindhyachal mountain where she came across Rishi Shringi. He advised her to observe the fast of Kamada Ekadashi.
Lalita observed the vrat with dedication and by Vishnu’s grace, Lalit regained his original form.
The fierce form of Shakti who slayed the demons, Chanda, Munda and Mahishasura-the buffalow-headed demon.
Ma Chamundeshwari is the Kuldevi of the Mysuru Maharajas and the presiding deity of Mysuru.
In the earlier days, the Hill was identified as Mahabaladri in honour of Shiva who resides in Mahabaleswara. It is believed that the hair of Sati had fallen here, so it is one of the 18 shakti peethas, also known as Kraunch Peetham.
Later, Devi incarnated here as Chamundi.
Devi Chamundi killed Mahishasura after a fierce battle which gave her the name Mahishasura Mardini. Mahishasur was a mighty Demon who could alter his feature from a human to buffalo and was born to demon Rambha and Mahishi.
It is believed that the Devi murti was established here by Rishi Markandeya. An image of Sri Chakra which symbolizes the Devi herself, is also worshipped.
The shrine is famous for a black granite statue of Nandi and that of Mahishasura holding a sword and a serpent in his hands.

Imagine for a moment the most obscurantist, jargon-filled, po-mo article the politically correct academy might produce. Pure SJW nonsense. Got it? Chances are you're imagining something like the infamous "Feminist Glaciology" article from a few years back.https://t.co/NRaWNREBvR pic.twitter.com/qtSFBYY80S— Jeffrey Sachs (@JeffreyASachs) October 13, 2018
The article is, at heart, deeply weird, even essentialist. Here, for example, is the claim that proposing climate engineering is a "man" thing. Also a "man" thing: attempting to get distance from a topic, approaching it in a disinterested fashion.
Also a "man" thing—physical courage. (I guess, not quite: physical courage "co-constitutes" masculinist glaciology along with nationalism and colonialism.)
There's criticism of a New York Times article that talks about glaciology adventures, which makes a similar point.
At the heart of this chunk is the claim that glaciology excludes women because of a narrative of scientific objectivity and physical adventure. This is a strong claim! It's not enough to say, hey, sure, sounds good. Is it true?
I'm still pissed about the bait and switch they pulled by telling me I'd be working on Chrome, then putting me on this god forsaken piece of shit on day one.
This will be a super slow burn that goes back many years. I’ll continue to add to over the next couple of days. I’ll preface it with a bunch of backstory and explain what I had left behind, which made me more unhappy about the culture I had come into.
I spent most of my early career working for two radical sister non-profit orgs. I was the only designer working on
anywhere from 4-5 different products at the same time. All centered around activism and used by millions of people.
It’s how I cut my teeth. Learned to be the designer that I am today. Most importantly, the people I worked for are imho some of the greatest people on the planet. Highly intelligent, empathetic, caring, and true role models for a young me. I adore them.
You might not know who they are, but if you’re reading this then you have definitely seen their work. Maybe OpenCongress, or Miro, or maybe Amara which is Vimeo’s partner transcription service. Definitely Fight for the Future, our internet defenders, which was shortly after me.
But what if we told you that the same burger moonlights as an economic tool?
Well, back in 1986, The Economist introduced the “Big Mac Index” to evaluate the value of currencies across countries via McDonald’s ubiquitous Big Mac burger & this concept came to be known as Burgernomics.
So how does it work?
Suppose a Big Mac costs $5 in the US and 20 Yuan in China. The Big Mac exchange rate would then be 5:20 or 1:4.
However, if the actual exchange ratio was 1:5, investors might predict that the Yuan is cheaper/undervalued by 20%.
Hence, the burger based index is premised on the idea that burger prices around the world can help you judge whether a currency is too cheap or too dear.
Why just the Big Mac though?
Well, for starters, McDonald’s has a phenomenally wide reach in the world, and the survey itself includes ~120 countries
Moreover, the Big Mac is mostly produced to the same specifications around the world & hence, the costs of producing the burger should be relatively standard.
Cauvery Thayar Temple, Thirucherai, TN.
Thirucherai is the important Divayadesam and Adi 18 is the special day to pray the River Cauvery and in Thirucherai, TN.
There is a separate temple for Cauvery in front of the Main Temple. ie, on the bank of Holy Tank.
Cauvery performed penance for 3000 years and obtained boons. Perumal pleased with the tapas, crawled to her as a child.
To symbolize this, there is an idol of Cauvery Thayar and a child on her lap.
Cauvery Thayar also received two boons – that she should be considered as greater than Ganga and that the perumal would confer moksha on anybody worshipping here.
Based on Cauvery’s request Perumal revealed Himself with Sridevi, Bhoodevi, Neeladevi, Mahalakshmi and Saranayaki.
Here, Perumal holds a lotus in His hand to symbolize His boons to Cauvery.
So, on the day of Adi Perukku, ie, on Adi 18, Special poojas and Theerthavari festival are performed every year.

After all the recent online events/conventions, I realised that there are a lot of people who don't understand how to maximise their promotion potential, so here's a quick, basic thread on how to do that!! 1/13
1. POST YOUR LINKS EVERYWHERE. People are lazy and want to do things as easily as possible. Put your shop/website/patreon link in your Twitter bio, in your pinned tweet, in your IG bio, make links easy to find on your site, put your links everywhere, please oh my god. 2/13
If you're making a post talking about your shop, put a link to your shop in the tweet (or in the tweet below if you're worried about algorithms). Say "shop link below!". Make it as easy as possible to find your shop! The majority of people will not go looking for the link!! 3/13
2. POST YOUR EMAIL EVERYWHERE. Someone looking to hire you isn't always going to want to DM you, and if they can't easily find a way to contact you, they'll just skip you. Put it in your bio!! Put it in your pinned tweet!!! Put it in the header of your website!!! 4/13
3. Related: make a website. If you don't want to make a portfolio website, then make an Instagram or Tumblr where your work is clearly on display. People are lazy. People don't want to scroll through memes to find your work to see if they want to hire you or buy from you. 5/13
