#Legend #story
It is believed that this is birth place of Kashyapa Maharishi’s sons, Arunan& Garudan. Arunan(charioteer of Surya)was physically handicapped.He was a Shiva devotee.Arunan wanted to visit Kailash to have Shiva Darshan,but Surya Dev denied permission.
So Arunan disguised as a girl & was on his way to Kailash.On the way Surya Dev saw this girl & outraged her modesty.Shiva was very angry with Suryan for misbehaviour & cursed him to get darkened. Whole world plunged into darkness.Surya Dev pleaded to Bhagwan Shiv to forgive him.
Shiva Bhagwan asked him to go to Thirumiyachur & worship him there. As advised, Surya Dev performed rigorous penance, placed murthi of Shiva& Parvathy on an elephant & took them to the clouds.Shiva in this temple is known as Meganathaswamy,Devi is known as Lalithambigai
Even after severe penance,Shiva does appear,so Surya Dev cries out in agony.Disturbed by his call, Parvathy protests.Siva pacifies her & offers relief to Surya Dev.The sculpture of Shiva pacifying Ambal shows her sullen from one angle &smiling from another.
Shiva blessed her to be Shanta nayagi.Devatas called vasini emerged from Lalithambigai’s mouth &sung Lalitha Sahasranamam stotra in praise of Goddess here.Hayagrivar conveyed lalita sahasranamam to Agasthiya Rishi.Agasthiya came to this temple & worshiped the goddess.
This stotra is found in Brahmanda purana as discussion between Hayagreeva &Agasthya Rishi. Hayagreeva -incarnation of Vishnu with horse https://t.co/GyecRgjgwy his request Hayagreeva taught him sahasranama of Lalithambigai &gifted to us the lalitha Sahasranamam
Sri Lalitambika is seated resting her folded right leg on seat. Her left leg is in Sukhasana https://t.co/mcDDyBAcYD other unique feature -only temple where we can offer Anklets for Devi.There is provision for inserting Anklet/Golusu on Devi's leg...Amazing

Decoded his way of analysis/logics for everyone to easily understand.

Have covered:
1. Analysis of volatility, how to foresee/signs.
2. Workbook
3. When to sell options
4. Diff category of days
5. How movement of option prices tell us what will happen

1. Keeps following volatility super closely.

Makes 7-8 different strategies to give him a sense of what's going on.

Whichever gives highest profit he trades in.

2. Theta falls when market moves.
Falls where market is headed towards not on our original position.

3. If you're an options seller then sell only when volatility is dropping, there is a high probability of you making the right trade and getting profit as a result

He believes in a market operator, if market mover sells volatility Sarang Sir joins him.

4. Theta decay vs Fall in vega

Sell when Vega is falling rather than for theta decay. You won't be trapped and higher probability of making profit.
